Comedian Bill Maher isn’t the only one cracking wise about cleaning house on Capitol Hill.

The candidates for early retirement profiled on the latest episode of Maher’s HBO show include:
Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas
“Bill Maher, as one pot smoking atheist to another, I hope you’re not full of s— with this flip a district plan,” the plaintiff pleaded.
Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio (2 votes)
“There’s really only one choice for your ‘hashtag’ flip a district.”
“Mr. John Boehner’s district. Imagine that.”
Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla.
“Please help Jacksonville and flip our district.”
Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga.
“Paul Broun. This f—— guy, dude.”
Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y.
“Please help me flip Queens congressional district 6 from Grace Meng.”
Rep. Jim Gerlach, R-Pa.
“Can you please help us swing the 6th congressional district of Pennsylvania? Thank you.”
Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, R-Tenn.
“Our representative, Chuck Fleischmann, is a complete empty suit.”
Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Calif.
“Republican representative Doug LaMalfa.”
Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas
“My congressman is Steve Stockman and, uhh, I would like you to get the district flipped.”
