The Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States is the highest ranking position in the lower chamber of the United States Congress. She or he is second in line after the Vice President to succeed to the Presidency of the United States but in front of the President Pro Tempore.

John Boehner (a Republican idiot from Ohio) is the current speaker, who only got to that position because he begged the Tea Party for support, he was also one of the cheif proponents of the Republican Shutdown in October 2013.

A notable number of Democrats have held this position, most recently Nancy Pelosi (who holds the record for being the first woman, the first Italian American, and the first Californian to hold it).
