Darth Boehner?

Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), in remarks on the U.S. House floor Saturday during the debt ceiling debate, drew boos from fellow House members when she accused Speaker John Boeher of "going to the Dark Side."

Irritated at her successor and conjuring up images of Star Wars, she complained:
“The Speaker chose, when he didn’t have the votes, instead of to reach out in a bipartisan way to see how we could work together, he chose to go to the dark side."
It was an interesting choice of words that seemed to imply that she was comparing Boehner to the evil force from Star Wars known as Darth Vader.

Boehner was actually saying to Pelosi: "I'll NEVER rule the Universe with YOU!!!"
