Well, friends, Kevin McCarthy got his wish … it took him four full days and 15 ballots, but he is Speaker of the House of Representatives … for now. But here’s the thing … in order to get the necessary votes, he made numerous deals, promises, compromises and gave away some things that were not his to give. For all who voted Republican last year or in 2020, I don’t want to hear a damn word of complaint later this year when the prices of food and fuel skyrocket, when the economy tanks, and Social Security & Medicare are on the chopping block, all because Kevin made a ‘deal’ not to allow the debt ceiling to be raised. They asked for it, they got it. Now it’s theirs to own.
In the end, Kevin McCarthy’s greatest legacy will be that he is a coward, a sell-out, and that he had a larger-than-life role in the attempt to bring down democracy and silence the voices of the people of this nation.
And that’s really about all I have to say that’s printable at this moment. Let the circus commence.
