John Boehner's 'TAN' Goes Tweet
[Note: This seemed to all pop out of nowhere 2/1710. I noticed some tweets about John Boehner showing up and tracked back on the time for @OTOOLEFAN (see Bio at bottom of this post), aka Don Millard, who is one of the great satirist I have found yet on twitter.
So @OTOOLEFAN was directing a question to Robert Gibbs, @PressSec, about following John Boehner, @GOPLeader, and how that would make as much sense as following Glenn Beck, @glennbeck. Then @OTOOLEFAN starts in on John Boehner, his 'Verified Account', and his TAN. Before long Boehner's TAN shows up with it's own account and the fun begins.]
@PressSec For a laugh,
you should follow
@GOPLeader, if not already.
Boner makes about
as much sense as @glennbeck
.@GOPLeader Love that you have a verified account now. Like anyone would ever pretend to be YOU.
.@GOPLeader You should get your tan verified, too.
Crayola to add a new color in place of "Indian Red": "Bohner Orange"
HA! RT @JohnBohnersTan And now I exist. // Hey, you should follow @GOPLeader. It's not easy bein' Orange.
Actual account is @JohnBoehnersTan. #FF
RTJohnBoehnersTan Oh boy I'm getting followers! I'm happier than an igloo that disproves global warming!
Hey @GOPLeader: Have you formally met your tan yet?: @JohnBoehnersTan. Sure you have so much to talk about.

@OTOOLEFAN We aren't on speaking terms. He's changed his aftershave. I've decided to glow at inconvenient times to get back at him.
@JohnBoehnersTan, I just want to thank you for staying orange and fabulous throughout these turbulent months. What's your secret?
@ShustieFan Can't reveal that. I'm on the Presidential line of succession don't you know?
@a_picazo Health care? Who needs health care when you look like you've walked out of a nuclear reactor! I'm awesome!
@catawu I can't tell my orange secret! It's a private matter between myself and John.
@JohnBoehnersTan Won't stop me from speculating. I bet it's OrangeGlo. Is it OrangeGlo?
@ShustieFan OrangeGlo is involved, but that's all John will let me say.
@TalkieToaster2 That's a secret. OrangeGlo is involved.
I will neither confirm nor deny my relationship to the Jersey Shore cast.
HA! Im so following @JohnBoehnersTan -his skin color reminds me of lightly BBQ'd chicken fat
@RoseLizenberg Yummy... chicken fat.
@JohnBoehnersTan What about Victoria Beckham? Confirm or deny? Fabio. Confirm or deny? (I know trick question)
@bethyarnall Neither. However, I will claim responsibility for the goose incident.
@JohnBoehnersTan Senator, do you remove that nightly, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually? And what type of sandblaster do you use?
@cashewredneck Well, I am the tan itself, so I don't discuss removal. That's a sensitive topic.
@JohnBoehnersTan Touche sir (or tan of sir).
@SnookiesTan CHILD! It's been SO LONG!
It takes Twitter to unite a father and daughter: @SnookiesTan
I must power down. Even tans need to rest up their energy. Until tomorrow Twitter.
(Updates From Thursday February 18)
The Tan is awake! It's a fine morning to glow!
And I have a snazzy picture too. Ignore the man. Pay attention to the tan. It's SEXY. Even in February.
I hope they've set up my booth at CPAC. Last year things got messy, I had to fight it out with Sarah Palin's hair extensions.
DAMMIT! My CPAC booth is all screwed up again! They've put me next to Bachman's Bumpits!
@billthebutcher2 I had to negotiate that Vitter's diaper be placed across the room this year. Such a pain.
Clearly, @JohnBoehnersTan is more interesting than John Boehner
@lmlTN In becoming self aware I've become larger than life. It happens. I'm thinking of challenging John in a primary.
.@JohnBoehnersTan Dude, I grew up in Ohio . . . never saw anything quite like you. Except maybe the senior prom.
@lmlTN I was created far outside of Ohio. I've been there to visit. It's... nice.
@lmlTN John has advised me never to speak of the cold. It bothers him.
and a glorius glow it is!
@joe221 NASA has said they want to study me. I may solve our energy problems and replace incandescent light bulbs.
From: @JohnBoehnersTan@lmlTN I'm all for the free market economy. John has taught me a thing or two.
