  • Students and passers-by at the University of Colorado said that Speaker of the House John Boehner should resign because of 'Deflategate.'
  • Students and visitors at the University of Colorado think John Boehner (R-Ohio) is responsible for Deflategate and should resign "immediately," according to a series of interviews conducted on the Boulder campus.

    The video, which promotes this summer's Western Conservative Summit, presented students with a non-sequitur asking if they believe John Boehner, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, should be forced to resign over the totally unrelated "Deflategate" incident in which the New England Patriots allegedly underinflated AFC championship game footballs.

    "Personally, I don't think he's responsible for Tom Brady's actions, and I don't know if he was involved. They need to do a little bit more investigation."   

    "Uum...I think so, I think you just gotta keep it fair," one girl answered when asked if Boehner should resign.

    "Personally, I don't think he's [John Boehner] responsible for Tom Brady's actions, and I don't know if he was involved. They need to do a little bit more investigation [sic]."
