Today will be the high point in McCarthy’s speakership.

McCarthy had a chance to show that republicans are not okay with the racist, antidemocratic behavior of the worst of their caucus.

And without shock to anyone, he caved like the spineless weasel that he always has been. And showed exactly what Republicans actually stand for, which we already knew.

Giving power and praise to those who orchestrated an attack on the capital and democracy exactly two years after it happened

Still waiting on those indictments….

The irony is that if he hadn't caved to them previously, it wouldn't have taken this long to become speaker.

What has Kevin McCarthy given up, and at what price?

I like how Republicans try to convince themselves that Gaetz, Boebert, Gosar, etc. were just trying to hold out for some quality rule changes.

The mental gymnastics must be exhausting.

See how it plays out but doesn’t look promising considering the actors involved

The Dems could have avoided the debt ceiling in the lame duck (or any time over the last two years) by setting the limit to some astronomical number

Instead they fear the optics

Yet if the US defaults a large portion of the country will blame them instead of the American Taliban.

Maybe should stick to recipes and dog photos

Cause the world of politics seems to be infected by Trumpism

No, but the US Justice system slow roll is empowering rest of the world.

When the “greatest” country on earth can’t keep its house clean, what kind of strength does that give other democratic governments?

I’ll be curious if Brazil has swifter Justice than here.

Update: over 400 people arrested

On Jan 6th most, if not all of those who stormed the capital were allowed to go home

have no doubt that this IS the plan.

when they knew they couldn't win the election - they tried to rig it with voter suppression - fucking up the postal service when they knew large amounts of ballots would be mailed in due to the pandemic.

when they lose anyway, they tried to steal it.

they've been sitting around for 2 years waiting for the biden recession to come - and it hasn't come.

so they're going to take matters into their own hands and wreck the economy - all to please the glorious leader.

and when he's in jail - they'll still do it anyways.

It’s going to come down to the real owners of the country to go scare the shit out of the wackos again. Last time around they “merely” fucked w/our credit rating. Threatening a global economic crash is could bring the hammer down even harder.

This is their only play. They know the Dems will cave, because the GQP absolutely will wreck the economy (USA & World) because it still potentially a win for them in regards to 2024

Considering they’re a death cult, they are perfectly happy with complete chaos as long as libs everywhere are owned and in pain
