You’ve got to love a “hot mic” moment like this:

After [Secretary of State John Kerry’s Senate] testimony [Thursday], Sen. Lindsey Graham approached Kerry to offer help negotiating with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) — an exchange caught on the desk microphone before Kerry turned it off.

“Hey John, good job,” Graham said. “Let me know what I can do to help you with Boehner.”

During his testimony, Kerry pressed Congress to include reforms to the International Monetary Fund, as proposed by the Obama administration, in an aide package to Ukraine.

Boehner, however, has remained firm in his opposition to the IMF boost.
