“So much for the charm offensive,” mused House Speaker John A. Boehner after hearing President Obama’s remark on arriving in Israel that “it’s good to get away from Congress.”
The speaker shared this with CNN’s Jake Tapper:
“I’d rather be heckled than ignored. Or, as I like to say, you only tease the ones you love,” Mr. Boehner added.
For those who can’t stay awake as the politicians drone on and on, it’s “Death Wish Coffee,” which contains 780 mg of caffeine — about three times as much as the typical brew. It’s organic, though, and priced at a rather strong $20 a pound.
“You will not find this coffee at your local diner or at your sissy Starbucks,” the New York-based company says, calling it “the world’s strongest coffee,” and offering the warning, “Try at your own risk.”

There’s not much optimism among tea partyers in the wake of the Republican National Committee’s grand plan to rebrand the party, unveiled by Chairman Reince Priebus on Monday. There is, however, continued anger and resolve.
“Tea Party Patriots will never allow the Republican National Committee or any political party veto power over our activities. Never,” proclaims Kevin Mooneyhan, a national program organizer for the ever-vigilant umbrella group.
“I don’t care what these D.C. hacks want. This is our movement and we will never dilute our message, compromise our principles or back down from a political fight,” he continues.
“According to the GOP report, ‘The RNC is the only entity that can effectively lead on issues and messaging’ and the Republican establishment plans to call for a ‘command performance meeting’ with all conservative groups to decide what we are allowed to do and say,” Mr. Monneyhan says. “Baloney.”
He adds, “These people either don’t know or don’t care about how much danger our country is in. They only care about gimmicks and political games.”
