Ohio republican John Boehner has been confirmed as the new Speaker of the House of Representatives for the 112th Congress.

Speaker Boehner may be better known for his recent outbursts of tears.

The highly emotional Tan Man has been the brunt of late night comedy monologues for his readiness to cry when questioned by reporters about issues he says he is sensitive about.

Opposing democrats would probably love to make the Tan Man cry, but only for losses on his conservative agenda.

Boehner has been known for many things, apart from his conservative political views and crying. He is often referred to as the ‘Tan Man’, because he maintains a golden skin tone, even in the dead of winter in Washington. Boehner has denied using a tanning salon, but some still have their doubts.
