Pop the cork gang—Kevin McCarthy has decided to take his toys and go home by the end of the year!
Democrats are glad, Republicans are mad, but guess who is pissed off the most: Gaetz!
That’s right, the guy with the massive eight-head (yah know, as opposed to fore-head) who started this whole shebang because of a pissing match with the Speaker of the House.
Not that McCarthy was some innocent little lamb in all this. He’s the man who brought us Green-Eggs-and-Ham gate, pretending that the estate of Dr. Suess deciding to shelve a few books no one was reading anyway was some massive woke cancel-a-thon by liberals!
Folks still believe that mess despite the pushback of truth and readily available info online. Score one for old Kev, I guess.
Still, the man proffered deals he could not keep and made a ton of enemies in the process.
Even so, ousting McCarthy created a civil war within the GOP ranks, leading an already dysfunctional Republican party to stagnate and grind to an MTG screeching halt. Even Tuberville has seen the writing on the wall and has vowed to step out of the way and allow military appointments to commence.
Or, his funding raising off his stunt has run dry.
As of right now, the Senate has confirmed 425 military nominees, no thanks to Tommy Jerkoff!
In any case, The Crazy Eight, which includes Gaetz, Boebert, and Marjorie Taylor Greene, has managed to dwindle their party’s majority, and more retirements are rumored to follow.
Former Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) confirmed in an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal Wednesday morning that he will be leaving the U.S. House at the end of this year.
McCarthy stated he would look to "serve America in new ways" and that his "work is only getting started."
With the Santos expulsion and Bill Johnson leaving to take a University president job, McCarthy’s departure will leave the House Republicans with a stunning one seat majority once he and Johnson are out.
Matt Gaetz warned recently that Republicans could lose their House majority mid-term if anyone else in the conference leaves. —Meidas Touch network
How is that “win” working out for you, Gaetz?
Party of Selfish Fools
When you have a party that cares more about fundraising off of made-up scandals on social media than about crafting comprehensive policy, the result is this: a whole lotta backstabbing, backbiting, and ineffectiveness. Such generally happens behind closed doors; now, the nastiness is on full display for America to see.
What the GOP is now saddled with is a demented American Psycho of a Speaker in Mike Johnson, who just stepped shy of an obstruction of justice charge by saying he would blur the faces of insurrectionists before releasing J6 video.
Meanwhile, James Comer is trying desperately to sell Americans on the idea that Biden buying his son a truck rises to the level of impeachment.
And Matt Gaetz's response? A pithy and oh-so-mature, “McLeavin’” on Twitter.
Little wonder members of their own party are stewing:
Whoa, Joey, mah man—I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Gatez is running scared
Matt Gatez’s short-sighted me-me-me antics have turned political crosshairs his way. See, if they could oust George Santos, guess who could be next? Why, old helmet hair himself, who is also the subject of an internal House Ethics Investigation.
He may not be the last Republican on the chopping block, especially if more GOP members fall by the wayside in the coming months.
This, my friend, is when a Democratic offensive is both appropriate and necessary.
Dems, run with and spike this ball! Democracy will depend on taking a page from the Republcian handbook and using it to our advantage for once.
Face it—you look weak AF when you are always running defense.
Strike while the iron is hot. The other side has never had an issue doing this, and we won’t be using dirty or underhanded tricks. We're just taking an opportunity to use their own hubris and stupidity against them.
Seriously, all our niceness has done is lead us to near fascism. Kid gloves off this time, and move in for the coup de grace!
GOP dominoes are fallin’
Now, excuse me while I grab my tub of popcorn, sit by a cozy fire, and enjoy the much-needed release of pointing and laughing at this clown show.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and cheers to you.
