I am loving that Kevin McCarthy's election to be Speaker of the House is in peril due to 9 Republicans wanting additional concessions, and 4 ultra far right Republicans just saying no, including notorious a$$hat Matt Rosendale (R - Eastern Montana).

The best hope we have, is that if McCarthy is denied the position, moderate Republicans will band with Democrats to elect a moderate Republican to be Speaker. The question is, are there enough normal not brain dead Republicans in the House to get this done? I for one hope so. I am sick and tired of the divisions in this country, when practically everyone I know are pretty much middle of the road ( have no far left or far right friends/acquaintances).

And if you voted for Matt Rosendale after his first two years von Congress based on his accomplishments, I'm sorry, but you are a moron.

The debacle that is currently taking place in the House of Representatives is a perfect metaphor for the Republican party over the last couple of decades. A political party held hostage by a small group of far-right extremists trying to bully the party even farther to the right. And this is how they going "govern". With chaos, and a heaping dose of conspiracy theory idiocy. Doing absolutely nothing to move our country forward.

Far right asshat and functional illiterate Moscow Matt Rosendale won't rest until America defaults on its debt. MAGAs seek a multi-polar world because they HATE America.

This would be great, but it won't happen. Most Republican Congress People are afraid of their constituents. They are afraid that they and their families will be targeted with violence by the extremists in the MAGA base. Can't say I blame them. If they were only afraid of getting voted out of office, working with Democrats might be an option.

When Rodentdale nominated the other guy in round nine today, I was amused to see his Baltimahr accent is back full on. Must be being back in his home country. He also said "American people" a LOT and made sure to get in the ever popular Nazi call "America First." Don't these idiots know they can't start investigating Hunter Biden until they get a speaker elected? It truly is some amazing political theater.

Matt Gaetz just blocked McCarthy in the 14th attempt at electing a speaker of the house.

They just need to do a few more ballots, because after 16, Matt Gaetz loses interest.

A little whisper in Mat Gaetz's
ear his face blanches and he changes his vote to Kevin McCarthy. It's just amazing.
