Boehner makes a 'Wedding Crashers' joke

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) borrowed a phrase from the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson classic "Wedding Crashers" on Tuesday to describe the Obama administration.

His tone, however, was anything but romantic.

In his daily "Leader Alert" memo, Boehner described the administration as "Stage Five Clingers," owing to its committment to stimulus spending.

Vince Vaughn (at right, with Owen Wilson) first used the term in the 2005 romantic comedy to describe a desperate woman who pursued him obsessively.
