K-Mac is no King Solomon

Split the Baby

House Leader Kevin McCarthy is trying to have everything both ways, Axios reports:

House GOP leader McCarthy backs Liz Cheney and Marjorie Taylor Greene

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy declared on Wednesday that he supports keeping Rep. Liz Cheney in her leadership role and opposes stripping Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee seats at this time, sources familiar with his closed-door remarks told Axios.

Why it matters: In keeping Greene, McCarthy risks public condemnation and fuels a Democratic effort to remove her through a House vote. In standing with Cheney, he also risks alienating himself from pro-Trump Republicans who remain a potent part of the Republicans’ base.

Well  in this case, I guess he is the baby being split, but he’s also the one deciding to split the baby and… and…

Between the lines: Several GOP lawmakers are frustrated with McCarthy for failing to deal with Greene on his own, and forcing them to cast a difficult vote on whether to strip Greene of her posts on the Education and Labor and Budget committees.

So he’s made no one happy, I guess? WINNING!!1!

    Ahhhhh yes, the old “I feel strongly BOTH ways” ploy. McFeeble is just the kind of alpha male to actually pull it off. Har-de-har-har-har

    I’ve always liked Randy (no not a lack of bathing) but the guy, since I discovered him. The Young Turks recently did an episode about the Greene woman. You gotta why the people in her district would send a decidedly crazy woman to represent them…
