Have we mentioned that would-be speaker of the house, Kevin McCarthy is really bad at his job? Well, he is.
K-Mac’s strategy for winning the Speakership seems to be the cliché, you cannot beat someone with no one, and it sure looks like K-Mac is gonna prove that one wrong.
At the heart of the struggles among McCarthy foes is their lack of a clear plan to take down the GOP leader when the House meets on Jan. 3 to choose its next speaker. Five members openly opposed to McCarthy claim that they have a list of 20-plus detractors set to publicly emerge. But the group has still not agreed on one specific alternative speaker candidate, a major problem that makes their plotting appear slapdash at a time when a show of force is important to maintain momentum in their efforts to topple McCarthy.
One chief McCarthy critic, Rep. Bob Good (R-Va.), denied any implication that McCarthy detractors were having trouble marshaling like-minded GOP lawmakers.
“There’s no diminishment of that,” Good said in an interview. “There are more of those kinds of people coming to us and asking us what we’re looking for, because they’re interested in being speaker.”
K-Mac is uniting his caucus against himself without there being an opposition nominee, and that takes a special kind of person to be that bad at their job.
