In the speaker's job, McCarthy's well-known savvy for fundraising and political glad-handing appeared ill-suited for corralling his party’s hard-right members.

Couldn't deal with the new paradigm.

Political glad-handing is not memeable and the electorate and transnational capital is not interested in it.

It is funding division, destruction of class consciousness in favor of xenophobia and prejudice, and worship of capital and "hustle culture".

MAGA and the FC deliver on this, McCarthy,was behind the times.

The Dems still have room for that old-school politicking, to the detriment of their democratic socialist wing, who actually have good, progressive ideas.

Which the masses didn’t want.

to the detriment of their democratic socialist wing, who actually have good, progressive ideas.

Which continues to be rejected more reason as to why people are fleeing States with heavily dysfunctional progressive socialist policies.

What could have been. Disappointing.

“McCarthy is the only speaker in history to be voted out of the job.”

That’s what he’ll be remembered for.

That’s what he’ll be remembered for.

As well as Republicans not being lemmings and just swallowing whatever their house speaker demands.

Lol no. Nobody will say that. He’ll be remembered for being the only speaker in US history to be voted out.

Lol no.

Yes

Nobody will say that.

You know everyone, you talked to every conservative?

He’ll be remembered for being the only speaker in US history to be voted out.

And the GOP for not following the house speaker like lemmings and lock-step

I previously posted he would resign which was strongly denied by the MAGA supporters. History won't be kind to him.

He'll be remembered as just the latest victim of Repub fratricide - being done in by his own Team Red...

Gaetz went and begged to Jeffries to partner with him to shiv his own Repub Speaker...how's that for party loyalty....ROFL...

And the kooks already have their knives out for Johnson...and will no doubt again beg Nancy, Schiff, and AOC to help them knee-cap their own guy...

Repub circular firing squad...keep it up fellas...LOL...

One Trump puppet exits but another Trump puppet takes his place.

I disagree, I think Kevin will be just fine. He’s now got so many options he can do within the private sector

See, now you get it. You can’t speak for anyone other than yourself. Well done.

So Repubs lost two liars this week...

George "I was a college volleyball superstar" Santos...

And Kevin "I was never going to ask Trump to resign" McCarthy...

They could stand to lose a lot more of these liars still there...

One thing this proves - when Repubs say "They'll never quit", that's just another lie - they then go and quit...

Get what?

You can’t speak for anyone other than yourself.

I always do

Well done.

No worries

So Repubs lost two liars this week...

The Dems keep theirs…Menendez, Fetterman…Schultz…

George "I was a college volleyball superstar" Santos...

Good riddance.

And Kevin "I was never going to ask Trump to resign" McCarthy...

No one cares

They could stand to lose a lot more of these liars still there...

The Dems need a lot of thinning out. A lot, 20 or more at least.

Probably work as a lobbyist or for a PAC. In other words join the swamp.

Best of luck Kevin.

Thank you for your service.

One of the great politicians who consistently outshone his Democrat colleagues.

His private sector experience is working a sandwich shop in Bakersfield (home of the Buck Owens sound !)

I am going to make a bet that Shannon Grove runs for his seat. She is another acolyte of the late Mark Abernathy's Western Pacific Research political machine in the San Joaquin Valley, currently a California State Senator representing much of the same region but who will be termed out. Then Vince Fong, the local member of the State Assembly will run for her seat in the State Senate. The only other person in the Abernathy machine who might also run is Jean Fuller, the former State Senator from McCarthy's district. She was termed out, making room for Fat Shannon to advance from the State Assembly to the State Senate. This is how things work in Kern County Mississippi, I mean Kern County California.

And get the gavel back next Nov...

George "I was a college volleyball superstar" Santos...

Good riddance.

To the Repub House majority...ROFL..

And Kevin "I was never going to ask Trump to resign" McCarthy...

No one cares

You did - you called him a RINO traitor....

They could stand to lose a lot more of these liars still there...

That's about what the Dems will pick up next Nov - maybe more given the Pubs extreme abortion stance...

That definitely is a possibility.

I have a cousin that bought into a franchise in Southern California, so that’s very good, like I said, the possibilities and experiences for him are limitless.

Houseboy at Mar-A-Lago?

Caddie at Bedminster?

Not the way the polls are looking for the Dems when it comes to spending.

To the Repub House majority...ROFL..

As well as the Dems, yet they keep their filth.

You did - you called him a RINO traitor.... 

I did, I like the guy, do I care, no.

That's about what the Dems will pick up next Nov -

Not with the spending record they have.

maybe more given the Pubs extreme abortion stance...

Once the border and crime is mentioned it’s over for the Dems

Thank you for flipping on MSM polls...

To the Repub House majority...ROFL..

As well as the Dems, yet they keep their filth.

OK, they're both filthy - and one supported a coup...

You did - you called him a RINO traitor.... 

I did, I like the guy, do I care, no.

Another flip - now you like RINO traitors...

That's about what the Dems will pick up next Nov -

I didn’t

OK, they're both filthy - and one supported a coup...

There was no coup.

Another flip - now you like RINO traitors...

No flip and I never disliked Kevin.

Not with the abortion record they have...

Wrong, people care more about crime, rising food costs, the border more than killing babies.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

A good start. Removing 1 more failed Republican who didn't stand up for what was right is a good thing.

About 177 more GOP losers to empty the swamp. There are probably 20 Democrats who need to go as well.
