Many Beltway journos and pundits are in a tizzy in the wee hours of the morning over this little tidbit: House GOP Speaker John Boehner reportedly told Democratic Sen. Harry Reid “Go fuck yourself” twice during contentious fiscal cliff talks on Friday.

We’re not sure what the big f’n deal is here — and not just because there’s plenty of salty language on Capitol Hill on both sides of the aisle. The profane insults were hollower than a gourd given that Boehner voted for Reid’s crapwich tonight and blocked any amendment proposals from fiscal conservatives.
Wait. Now Boehner telling Harry Reid to go fuck himself is a bad thing? LOL #clowns

@RBPundit I'd like to tell Boehner the same thing right now.

@RBPundit I would have cheered for him yesterday, this morning. Tonight? I just don't care. He didn't have to sell us out.

Yep, that about sums it up:
So Boehner told Reid to go f*ck himself? Then he bent over for him on the House floor. #Unimpressed
