Thanksgiving

John Boehner has the secret to the perfect turkey brine

Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) has released a video about how he'll be preparing his Thanksgiving turkey.

Cleverly dubbed "The Boehner Brine," the sauce includes "16 ounces of pure maple syrup." Boehner also notes that he only cooks the turkey "to about 160, max" to keep it flavorful. "And then I take it out, and I put foil over it and let it sit for at least an hour."
