Everything must go!
He must have forgotten all he did to get the gavel in the first place. "SURELY the leopards won't eat MY face", he said confidently to himself.
Whoever came up with the "man of principle Mitch McConnell" angle must have forgotten how he openly and successfully schemed to deny Obama the right to appoint a Supreme Court Justice and then shamelessly did a full 180° so Trump could stack the court. Also, if history has taught us anything, not "needing" to lie should never be confused with being morally opposed or unwilling to resort to it.
Republicans throw out speaker forced to work with democrats by being forced to work with democrats. What petty piss-ants conservatives are.
I loved the whole "How would [Democrats] like it if we'd done this to Pelosi?" line. My siblings in Hestia, Nancy Pelosi would never have gotten into this position if the first place, not in a million billion years.
I'd never heard of this McHenry before yesterday, but every time I hear something from or about him, I like him less.
Although his outrage at Democrats in the clip included in this post is pretty damn funny. He's royally pissed because he knows perfectly well that he and his friend Kevin are about to take a royal screwing, the screwing is being enabled by Democrats, and there isn't a single fucking thing he can do about it. He's as helpless as the damsel tied to the railroad tracks. So of course he's pissed. That's why he kicked Pelosi out of her office.
Regarding that last sentence: I have long believed that one of the keys to understanding and evaluating people is to see how they act when they're genuinely angry. And this McHenry just revealed his true self: A vindictive, petty little shit.
Temporary House Speaker Rep. Patrick McHenry has long anti-LGBTQ+ record
This particular Speaker all but sold his soul to the Devil to get the job, so there's a fine irony in the fact that his downfall was triggered by the one halfway decent thing he did during his brief tenure. As the prince Morocco finds to his cost in The Merchant of Venice, "All that glisters is not gold."
I don't believe it. McCarthy will be back begging for votes once he's licked his wounds
From I've learned the third in line to the Presidency (After the Speaker of the House) is the Secretary of STATE. Can anyone confirm this please? Just ponder a PRESIDENT BLINKEN!
This shit is better than any soap opera. It would be more enjoyable, however, if the fate of democracy wasn't hanging in the balance.

Putting the bug-eyed, tongue-talking, Republinazi psychopaths that wanna destroy the government in charge of running the government sure works great, huh.
McCarthy saying he won’t seek the speakership is likely to be another lie.
Just read this on cnn:
Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio on Wednesday became the first Republican to publicly say he’ll run to be the next House speaker, aiming to replace Kevin McCarthy, who was ousted Tuesday.
So I was at my sister's house while the post-shitshow wrapup began, and Lord have mercy but CNN is just terrible now. I had to turn it off when Kev started with his valedictory pity party. Having the reporter in the hallway asking every GOP idiot the same questions--What's next? Who do you think will be the next Speaker--gets old fast.
