I just donít buy they are in disarray. They have a small minority of extra wacky congressmen trying to impose their willÖ.like 15-20 congressmen out of more than 200. Because itís a tight majority they have sway. McCarthy is actually the less radical option. Fancy Gym Jordan!?

They will work it out.

Do you think they would give Steve Scalise a shot?

Maybe that will be the compromise. No idea.

And my Steve Scalise shot joke falls flat. Probably because y'all all had the jab.

Pretty bad schtick to start the year off with if I'm being honest.

At least he didn't mention the unfortunate softball incident.

all aboard the GOP clown-car:

ROUND 1:
Jeffries (D) 212 votes
McCarthy (R) 203
Andy Biggs (R) 10 (nominated by Gosar)
Nine lawmakers supported none of the three hats in the ring

ROUND 2:
Jeffries (D) 212 (no change)
McCarthy (R) 203 (no change)
Jordan (R) 19 (new candidate)

ROUND 3:
Jeffries (D) 212 (no change)
McCarthy (R) 202 (-1)
Jordan (R) 20 (+1)

voting suspended for today.  rumors that scalise will throw his hat in for R4.

Dems are in a rock-solid array (crystalline?).

They can not make enough popcorn for this

There are Congresses where they have taken over 100 votes to get a speaker

Debbie Stabenow of the fading fast state of Michigan not running for Senate in 2024 should be of concern with it's rapidly approaching red state status... there are plenty of strong female Dems in the state at the moment so it will be interesting... 

also total chef's kiss to the new governor of PA appointing Al Schmidt the Republican Philly commissioner to Secretary of the Commonwealth.  Al being one of the chief people not putting up with TFG's BS.. betting some china was tossed around in FL today...

If Gretchen isn't on the Dem ticket in 2024, this might be her seat to go get and would likely bolster the Dems efforts to keep= the state in the Presidential race as well.
