Kevin McCarthy Speaker hell update!
When aggrieved, infantile, paranoid white people from super-gerrymandered states elect white trash like Gaetz, Burport, Marg Toilet Green, etc, this is where you end up.
Some of the craziest nutters suggested they’d nominate PAB for Speaker next. They won’t have the votes for that noise, and PAB would never accept what he’d consider a demotion. Many in the GOP despised him in 2016 but held their noses and played along to save their careers. They hate him more now, and they know a PAB nomination all but assures another 4 year wait for a possible Republican potus. Trump is so toxic the American people would elect Hunter Biden before they’d jeopardize all our lives again.
They won’t get behind MTG or any of the fringe nutters. Hakeem Jeffries has a better shot at it. But it can absolutely get worse than Kev, and it almost certainly will.
So now he’s gone, voted out by Dems and a few Rs. He even said he won’t seek to recover the gavel, as even he knows, like the impeachment inquiry, he doesn’t have the votes. But, McCarthy was spineless and wishy washy, and Dems must prepare for far worse from the far-right gop than that. The real obstruction is about to begin.
They gerrymandered themselves.
Four percent mattered more than 96%.
lol. They actually fuckin' did it and fired him. What a miserable and useless 9-ish month time with the gavel. Good job, Kevin. It was totally worth debasing yourself for.
Man....I back in January I called September as the month Qevin would get the axe.......missed it by 3 days......story of my life.....sigh......
ok so what's the over under on the number of votes each candidate for speaker has to go through (with a side bet on the total number of votes altogether) before a speaker is elected?
Who do we favor for next Speaker of the House? I'm torn between "Boobs” Boebert (gavel in one hand vaping stick in the other with a little hanky-panky in the cloakroom and bitch fights with Man Hands Taylor in the loo) or George Kitara Santos (America’s first Holocaust survivor, Lacross champion, puppy mill mogul, Goldman Sachs exec, 9/11 martyr Speaker with bitch fights with Man Hands in the aisle). It's a deep bench.
Stephen you are a Treasure and Delight - thank you
My rep Connolly bringing heat!
I don't like to use the B word because it's so sexist and misogynist, but Karma really is a bitch.
“It is going to be difficult for my Republican friends to keep calling President Biden ‘feeble’ while he continues to take Speaker McCarthy’s lunch money in every negotiation.”
HEY THE PRESS! You payin attention to that little slip up?
“Sentient oil slick Matt Gaetz” 🤣🤣 he even looks like the oil monster from Ferngully!! https://gifer.com/en/G2mn
Honestly disappointed in the Dems that voted to oust McCarthy.
Without a Speaker, the House is basically useless, and with the MAGA tribe wanting one of their own in the chair, more moderate (less MAGA) Republicans wanting one of THEIR own, and the Dems wanting Hakeem Jeffries, how many more votes is it going to take before there's a new Speaker?
The reason I'm disappointed with the Dems is that in addition to this chaos, they had the opportunity to show McCarthy who actually owned his testicles, and instead they voted in support of the MAGA movement to sow chaos.
So the house can't actually do anything until they have a speaker. Which is probably bad, but given who GOP voters sent to the house is also maybe kinda of good?
