    @Olivia_Beavers
    McCarthy’s team laid out a compromise that would give in to nearly every demand expressed by the current defectors. Plan discusses everything from rules committee seats to house floor vote guarantees, a source familiar tells me.
    "Fine have it all, everything! Just let me be Speaker!"

    Gaetz is another that McCarthy could have kneecapped ala Madison Cawthorn, but he didn't. And now...

    Gaetz said no matter how many times they vote he will never vote for McCarthy. I need more popcorn!

    No they don't...because he has already gotten in a fight with the CBC over their racial stances. It is how he made a name for himself. He also fully backs Trump (even said he isnt racist!) and voted not to certify. He is a crackpot criminal who became a Republican because he "found Jesus" and became a Christian.

    He is originally from NY.

    He defrauded a bank. That's kind of good news / bad news.

    The GOP is pushing him because he's black and they think, seriously, the Congressional Black Caucus will flock to him.

    Because Conservatives are racist morons.

    This is getting hilarious...

    Baier: Let me just be clear, you are lumping in Kevin Mccarthy with the swamp and thereby saying that former president Trump in endorsing McCarthy is somehow tied to the swamp? Is that what you are saying?
    People loyal to Trump, who think he would be draining the swamp, are saying the man he endorsed and is begging for them to vote for is...part of the swamp? So Trump is draining the swamp by being associated with the swamp?

    Man, the Russian intelligence operation to sew chaos and discontentment amongst their former enemies - the GOP - has really been incredibly successful.

    It’s already an official game. Now with Donalds having 12 midway through the 6th we’re guaranteed a 7th inning stretch.

    I know nothing about Donalds, I assume he is crazy given who is voting for him, but part of me would find it very funny if a guy named "Donalds" won just to rub it in to Trump it wasn't him.

    Gym is out. Donalds got all his votes. He seemingly really wants nothing to do with this cluster...turning a blind eye to rape as per usual. (this time Qevin)

    If that is her play it is stupid. They need Qevin to drop (or cut the deal of deals) or they have no path to victory. Even Boebert can do the math...she isn't a Talibaner she was Pro McCarthy yesterday. Why change now?

    The Qrazies are ride or die...her voting "present" screws her whole party.

    All I can say is this is so richly deserved. I hope the Republican party literally splits in half, like the pre-Civil War Democrats.

    Well once McCarthy drops out some other R immediately gets all his votes, and then maybe a few of the protesters'. Or maybe the moderates are trying Chinese water torture: every round the Crazies hold on, they shoot a hostage, moving Jeffries one vote closer to Speaker. The Mccarthyites way of giving a "I would rather let Democrats control committees than you" middle finger to the Vandals.
