Putting Caddies To Work

Who says there’s no bipartisanship in Washington?
An open mic caught Vice President Joe Biden (D) and House Speaker John Boehner (R) joking before President Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress Thursday.

“Hey, I’m one of those barbarians,” Boehner said, greeting Biden with a handshake.

“You are,” Biden agreed, lauging. “We’re at the gate.”

“I was playing golf in August,” Boehner volunteered. “Seven birdies, five bogies. I shoot two under. So, we have lunch, sitting around for about an hour and and I thought, ‘Why don’t we play nine more holes?’”

“Six pars, three birdies and I missed a four-foot, straight-in birdie on the last hole,” the Speaker added.

“No!” Biden remarked.

“Oh, so the next day, I go to Sandhills, I shoot a 86,” Boehner added, with a big laugh. “One day I play great, the next day I play awful. But this is the round of the decade. I haven’t done this for 12 years. I shot a 67 one time.”
