Oh, Nancy...

No smoking in the Capitol...

If House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, quits smoking, he might have to thank his political rival.

In one of her first acts as the new head of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, has banned smoking in the Speaker's Lobby. The room, right off the House floor, has been one of the last refuges for lawmakers and journalists to light-up during votes.

EVIL, Nancy. E-V-I-L!

"The days of smoke-filled rooms in the United States Capitol are over," Pelosi said Wednesday in a statement released by her office. "Medical science has unquestionably established the dangerous effects of secondhand smoke, including an increased risk of cancer and respiratory diseases. I am a firm believer that Congress should lead by example."

Blah, blah, 'secondhand smoke' blar-blah-dee-blee. If there is a silver lining, and I like to think there is... it's that Boehner will have to stand out in the cold for a cigarette. WHERE HE BELONGS.
