The Long Battle for Speaker of the House Week at Legal Insurrection

The Long Battle for Speaker of the House Week at Legal Insurrection

All the news you may have missed.

Kevin McCarthy prevailed in the end. Hopefully, this experience will make him a stronger leader.

It was a sometimes ugly fight.

Now prepare for the next battle.

Dear House GOP – start the investigations immediately.

And strip every member of the Squad of all their power.

Will Biden see the mess he has caused?

He can’t even speak about the issue coherently.

Thanks, Captain Obvious.


Were they too busy monitoring conservatives on Twitter to do anything?

Why is the liberal media so awful?

Ron DeSantis is taking it to the next level.

As predictable as the rising sun.

Name a Democrat who would have done this for Trump.

If you’re interested in media, this is a must-watch.

World news.

More 2022 reviews.

And predictions for 2023.

The real thing to notice here is that the Ds are monolithic. Out of 212 of them, not a single one seems to have an individual soul.

Happy that McCarthy needed to offer concessions to win – although, ideally, he would have done this before the first vote 🙂

    It was better that he didn’t, because now everything is out in the open.

    The most significant. but (as far as I’ve seen) unremarked story here is that if most of Trump’s biggest supporters hadn’t ignored his wishes and endorsement, NONE of those concessions would have ever been made.

    You could simply say they don’t have souls, as a group or individually. No communist does.

They did not have a Trey Gowdy to pretend to be on the conservative side while controlling them.

The rumor is that the agreed-upon rules that broke the logjam will not be approved. The next thing that should happen, should that be the case, is a motion to vacate the chair.

I was amusing while it lasted and I really, really hope that those who stood up continue to do so.
