Team Boehner Cyber-Slaps Obama

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) apparently never tires of needling President Barack Obama. He even used the occasion of redesigning his website to toss up this snarky “404 error” message:

HOH has repeatedly inquired about the origin and debut of the cleverly conceived Web diss, but Boehner’s flacks have remained tight-lipped about the mystery coder.

Mind you, Boehnerland’s jab is not the most politically incorrect search redirect we’ve ever seen:

Or the most emasculating:

Or even the most nerdcore:

But we do have to give them props for developing a 24/7 thumb-in-the-president’s eye.
