New York-based comedian Julianna Forlano joked about Congressman Anthony Weiner’s distasteful demise during an interview with The UpTake at Netroots Nation, adding that “there are still plenty of dicks left in Congress.” As for House Speaker John Boehner, Forlano pulled out the German accent as she quipped, “A ‘Boehner’ is still a boner, no matter how you spell it.” Asked about Michele Bachmann, Forlano joked that the Minnesota Congresswoman has no inner monologue and probably calls up the Koch brothers for guidance.
