Moronic Kevin McCarthy

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Well, shit, a little bit of scare for the extreme wing. Sort of like..."if you don't stop acting crazy, I won't be able to act crazy" sort of thing. Gym Jordan is furiously making lists of what to investigate, underlining things to investigate more than once. We're in for an epic clown show, folks. Get out your fish. Many fish slaps will be needed. And don't forget stomping boots. ok

Despite himself and his habit of self-dick-stepping, McCarthy could become one of the best Speakers if he took advantage of this great opportunity to bring about a coalition of moderate-ish Repugs and moderate-ish Dems not only to get elected but to continue through legislating. But is he going to do that? Nooooooo! He's going to roll over to the loons and then they'll shit on his head.

Being a spineless pandering buffoon will do that.

Yeah, you do not have to like or agree with others to collaborate with them. Just remember "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." It would appear that the Gaetz/EmptyG coalition is more his enemy than the Dems.

Cue ironic smirk.

Jefferies is going to get more votes than McCarthy.

EmptyG is actually on Team Kevin. That's how she became an instant RINO.

IMO it would be :bs: for any moderate Dems to support McCarthy. He was a major fanboy of Dolt .45. In my hopelessly unlikely scenario of anything other than Kevin caving in to the wingnuts the few moderate Repubs plus any that aren't batshit crazy and TRE45QN-tainted would offer up one of their own or a con Dem as a bipartisan pick while refusing to support wingnut-tainted McCarthy. But, we all know that they and Kevin are too spineless, the wingnuts will win their concessions and the House will suck for 2 or more years.

Republicans are hearing from GOP donors and constituents that the party "looks stupid"

Gee, I wonder why? Rep. Jim Jordan nominated McCarthy ahead of the vote on the second ballot. The vote was:
Rep. Jeffries (D) 212
Rep. McCarthy (R) 203, including George Santos :lol:
Rep. Jordan (R) 19

Yep, stupid.

I don't think that Jordan would ever be a consensus choice, though he probably represents the real GQP more honestly than Kevin. Hopefully, Gym's been damaged by this fiasco.

Adjourned until noon. Most likely Kevin caves in overnight.

Caves how? To who?

Gym really doesn't want it and he doesn't have the votes if he did.

They're rudderless. I don't think anyone can get 218.

Caves in to the Jordan voters' demands, not to electing Jordan.

Kevin is spineless.

House Dems' chant: "HAKEEM HAKEEM HAKEEM!!!
Classy Nancy applauding as vigorously as anyone.
Nice, first Black to be a party leader in either chamber.
