John Boehner, Music Video Star

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-West Chester) is getting some serious face time on YouTube these days.

A person named Josh Stanley has created a mash-up of Boehner’s angry “Hell no, you can’t” rant on the floor of Congress from the March 21 vote on the health care reform bill with the popular song, Yes We Can. The latter was created by singer will.i.am of the Black-Eyed Peas, to support Barack Obama in his successful 2008 presidential bid.—-

The resulting video has become something of an Internet sensation, generating a massive amount of views during the past week through various YouTube links.

As one person who posted the video online remarked, “(Boehner’s) blustering outrage had nothing to do with his perpetual tan and the fact that the bill places a tax on tanning salons. No, really, it didn't.”
