Nice try, Daily News. But the problem with your failed attempt at mockery here is that to conservatives, the portrayal of a white, male, conservative politician as a ruthless thug is a compliment—.

Just off the top of my head: maybe next time you could draw Boehner as a bratty little toddler in diapers having a teary tantrum, gripping a baby bottle filled with his Grade A, 100% government-funded healthcare. Make him seem all desperate and stupid and weak and stuff. You know, girly.*

They really hate that shit.
