#8: John Boehner
After replacing Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, Boehner became best known for one thing and one thing only: Crying.
Or, more accurately, doing a really bad job of pretending to be crying.
This was presumably done so often by the Speaker to try and mitigate the fact that the incoming Tea Party Senators and Representatives were a bunch of psychotic anti-American lunatics who had been elected on the promise of never working with the Democrats ever or allowing any legislation to pass, even when it came to common sense legislation.
Right from the very beginning, Boehner established a reputation for himself as sensitive and childish.
Based on what happened most recently, we now know that at least the latter is true.
Following tense negotiations to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" of automatic tax increases and spending cuts, Boehner was reported to have encountered Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby.
According to reports, Boehner pointed his finger at Reid and told him to "Go [expletive] yourself."
Reid was reported to have responded "What are you talking about?", at which Boehner repeated the aforementioned profanity.
Boehner was later reported to have bragged about the confrontation to other fellow Republicans.
It's debatable what is most depressing: That the Speaker of the House felt compelled to attack the Senate Majority Leader, that the only way he could think to do so was to fling vulgar expletives at him, or that the House of Representatives, made aware of this event by him bragging about it to them, decided to reelect him the Speaker anyway.
