      it's from the ceremony a few years ago where the Apollo 11 crew were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. (Neil Armstrong is cropped off on the left and John Glenn is cropped off on the right.) Boehner inexplicably burst out bawling when he stepped up to present Armstrong with his medal.

        I suppose astronaut-crushes plus Scotch for lunch could cause an upwelling of emotion.  Myself, I've always hated that ATT commercials can make me tear up.
