As the title of this diary says, hell has frozen over, and pigs are flying… speaks volumes about the state of the GOP these days.
It appears Kevin McCarthy has changed his tune. The article actually speaks for itself so there is not much I can add to it.
Not only does the video clip show the newly ousted Speak of the House paying the Democratic party compliments, but he also lampooned his own party for its lack of diversity.
The video, which already has 2.5 million views on X (formerly Twitter), comes from a debate McCarthy took part in at Oxford University on October 28. McCarthy represented the opposing argument in a debate titled “This House Believes US Interventionism Has Done More Harm Than Good.”
But as the article says: Don’t get too excited, though. McCarthy participated in the debate three weeks after his fellow Republicans had ousted him. He wasn't bravely speaking truth to power; he just made a slight dig when he no longer had anything to lose.
I suspect he’s only saying out loud what many other members of the GOP may be thinking but are too cowardly to say.
