Kevin is outta there.
First time ever in the history of this country.
You know someday this will be a Jeopardy question.
IF, the Democrats thought they could trust Kevin….
But, they can’t. So, they had no incentive to help him.
Congressman Jeffries has shown great discipline with his caucus.👏🏾👏🏾
This is a GOP issue.
They let the crazies run the asylum.😒😒🙄🙄

You can blame the Republican insurgence for bringing down McCarthy, but the bigger problem is that the GOP is now a countercultural movement of sour and resentful people who don’t even know what the hell they’re mad about most of the time until Fox tells them why they’re angry.

Kevin McCarthy reneged on damn near every deal he brokered, kicked Democrats off committees for no reason, held hearings on Hunter Biden’, initiated impeachment hearings based on nothing man FUCK HIM!
He was weak AND couldn’t be trusted.
Of what benefit was he to Democrats?

Good Commentary about the House GOP:
McCarthy’s short speakership underscored how the Republican Party in the age of Donald Trump has turned into one of the great forces of instability in American life, and potentially the world, with the ex-president dominating the 2024 GOP primary as he takes aim at a wrecking ball second term. A party that once defined conservatism as preserving a traditional sense of steadiness and strength has evolved over the last three decades into a haven for chaos agents, stunt politics and a perpetual ideological revolution that keeps driving it to new extremes. The party’s willingness to accept the outrageous was also on display Tuesday in New York, where Trump ranted in a corridor outside a courtroom hearing his fraud trial and was slapped with a gag order for attacking a judge’s clerk on social media.
McCarthy was no moderate and did little to check the GOP’s turn away from democracy. But his defeat, at the hands of far-right rebels he complained last week want to “burn the whole place down,” is an eloquent commentary on his party. His political assassins, led by Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, toppled their leader with no plan for what comes next – leaving a hugely important wing of the US government paralyzed for at least a week. The self-inflicted chaos will hamper the party’s effort to capitalize on President Joe Biden’s vulnerability, and the fresh show of incompetence and extremism could hamper the GOP’s bid to retain swing seats it needs to keep its majority next year. More importantly Tuesday’s political regicide showed that the majority in the House is inoperable and that the Republican Party is unmanageable. Until that changes, America itself will be ungovernable.
