Because nothing pays tribute to the dead like bending a couple in the Doo-Dah room

That John Boehner....any excuse for a party:
Tonight, President Obama will deliver a “healing message,” in Tucson, AZ at a memorial service for those who died in the tragic shooting there this weekend. The somber service, which is expected to attract up to 14,000 people, will feature prayers, the playing of the National Anthem, as well as reverent remarks from various officials from both sides of the aisle.
At around the same time, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will be slinging back cocktails with members of the Republican National Committee at a political party he’s hosting at the swanky National Harbor resort in suburban D.C., Roll Call reports:

The Ohio Republican is holding a 7 p.m. cocktail reception Wednesday night for 168 RNC members, who are in the Washington area for an annual meeting. The event is sponsored by Boehner’s political action committee and will take place at Maryland’s National Harbor resort. [...]

A Boehner aide said the Speaker plans to leave the RNC party before Obama begins his remarks.

“Speaker Boehner will attend an organizational meeting with RNC members this evening, but will leave before the president’s speech begins,” Boehner spokesman Cory Fritz said.

I guess the TV will be on and he wants to get out before the broadcast starts.

Well, that's because Boehner knows what counts. What's a wounded Democrat going to do for him? No cash there.

Also, BOOZE was involved, and we know how Boehner feels about that....
