The Speaker

I'm watching the Republicans in the House try, again, to elect a Speaker. I don't feel at all sorry for McCarthy. He sold his soul to get this job, and I can recall all the crappy things he has said about Democrats, the lies, the hypocrisy, the slithering down to Mar-a-Lago to kiss Trump's thing ... I think McCarthy deserves this comeuppance.

Some are saying the Democrats should help the Republicans vote for McCarthy or a more normalish Republican Speaker. They should not! Some say this circus is impasse bad for the country. Nope, it's good for the country. It allows voters to see in real time what Republican governance (snort) is all about. Even if the Republicans had chosen a speaker on the first vote, they would not use their power to help the American people through passing legislation. They would and will instead spend all their time trying to put Dr. Fauci's head on a spike and Huneter Biden's naked photos on Times Square billboards. I hope the vote takes forever.

All it would take is five Republicans to vote for Jeffries and he would have it. He already has more votes than McCarthy. McCarthy has already failed 6 votes. Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

But they would never do that. Their voters would flip their wigs. Someone has to get a certain majority of the available votes, which ig everyone is there is 218 i think. So though Jeffries has 212, he needs 218 to win.
