Going forward, I will be calling Kevin either “Squeaker McCarthy” or “The Squeaker”, or just plain “Squeaker”.
*Kudos to Geminid for either coming up with that, or for sharing that with us, whatever the case may be.
Has everyone watched the Hakeem Jeffries speech from last night? I am about to watch it now.
For the record, even if the Rules package passes without incident, my money is on Squeaker fucking up the Rules somehow, in some way that we can exploit.
So for myself, I am swearing off pre-worrying about the Rules. I’m going to focus on the fact that these past few days have allowed us to see just what Hakeem Jeffries is made of, just what the new Democratic leadership is made of, and what the Democrats in the House are made of.
I came away impressed on all three counts.
In terms of leadership, we have the best of both worlds: outstanding new leadership and the presence of Nancy Pelosi still in the House, with all the wisdom and experience she brings with her.
So fuck the Squeaker, and fuck the party he rode in on, which hopefully he will drive further into the ground.
