McCarthy goes down in flames as new challenger Gym Jordan looks to continue the noble tradition of tolerating sexual abuse of wrestlers (or participating in it) by Republican speakers. Here are the Republicans voting against Kev.
One thing I’m pondering is whether MTG is actually more clever than Boebert. MTG (and Jordan) “backed” McCarthy. Boebert is allied with Gaetz in throwing sand in the gears. I thought the MTG/Jordan move was the (relatively) smart one, since McCarthy would probably win and MTG/Jordan would have more leverage to get concessions. But maybe not. If I’m Boebert, I’d be looking to ally myself with whomever will give me more earmarks for my district. Instead, she’s allied herself with Gaetz and will just flap around like a gooney bird.
My mother had a saying about company: “after three days, the dead stink.” I’m guessing that after 3 votes, McCarthy is going to reek like fish guts sitting out in the sun.
