K-Mac Remains Really Bad At His Job

“My Preciousssss”

The Republicans are the smartest and politically savvy… oh, who am I kidding? The Circus is in town, as Axios reports in their morning email thingie:

House Republicans quickly did away with the remote voting that was allowed after COVID stuck. The stricter rules could juice the GOP’s slim majority, since only a handful of votes could be decisive, Axios’ Stef Kight and Andrew Solender write.

  • Why it matters: Sickness, surgeries, funerals and other events calling House members away from D.C. suddenly have higher stakes.

And we will remind Axios that these brainiacs also did away with 1) metal detectors and B) masks and Covid testing, so that 5-person margin is likely to handicap whatever K-Mac’s strategy is.

  • Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) said it “may come as a shock to the D.C. bubble that we expect members to show up to work.”

“…probably drooling and putting straw in their hair,” Emmer did not add.

🧮 By the numbers: Republicans hold their second-narrowest House majority (222-212) since at least 1963 — beat only by the 107th Congress (2001-2003), where the majority held just 220 seats, according to Pew Research Center.

From what I understand, if five Republicans fail to show up (for whatever reason) and if the Democrats do show up, well, things go south.

Axios continues to complete the racing forum for us:

👀 What to watch: House members’ ambitions for higher office will add to leaders’ attendance headaches.

  • Just two weeks into the session, three House members have announced Senate bids. Another — Rep. Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.) — is running for Chicago mayor.

At least a half dozen other House members are weighing bids for Senate or governor.

And that likely means that they will be absent while campaigning for better jobs.

K-Mac remains really bad at his job.

    Now if we can get a few more of them to stand near windows, Moscow-style…
