Washington--John Boehner said that he is going to lose the tan because he wants to get more respect from the national media.
"Who is going to respect a man that looks like a George Hamilton wannabe. I also discovered that Botox can do the same thing that my tanning was doing, because I need to look young if I going to be the leader of the House. Just ask Pelosi." Boehner told reporters gather for his weekly press conference.
John Boehner is soon to become the Speaker of the House, and with the add responsibilities of the job comes the pressures to look younger than what you really are, so Mr. Boehner is turning to Botox.
"I noticed that the tanning was starting to dry out my skin, and I also didn't want to pay the new tax that was I being charged by Obama. I think as a republican I should oppose anything that Obama does or taxes, even if it stops people from doing things that my give them cancer." Boehner added.
Boehner was noticeably lighter at the press conference, and a had a hard time frowning when he said sad things about President Obama's policies.
