That sounded so good this morning I just had to repeat it here.

Boehner to U.S. House on healthcare ruling: don’t gloat
June 21, 2012|Reuters
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Thursday told the Republican rank-and-file there will be no celebrating in Congress if the Supreme Court rules against President Barack Obama’s sweeping healthcare reform law.
“No one knows what the court will decide,” Boehner said in a memo to fellow Republicans. “But if the court strikes down all or part of the president’s healthcare reform law, there will be no spiking of the ball.”
Yeah, like anyone in his party would’ve followed that advice.
Now they can’t celebrate, but we will.
