Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi once said that the only job requirement to being a Speaker of the House is to know how to count. Oops, said K-Mac:
Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) vow to block Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) from sitting on the House Foreign Affairs Committee has hit an early snag: He may not have the votes to do it…
“There’s already two Republicans that have indicated that they won’t vote to put her off, and I think others will come aboard also,” said Rep. Gregory Meeks (N.Y.), the senior Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, who is lobbying Republicans on Omar’s behalf…
Adding to the mathematical headache, Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) said he will be “sidelined in Sarasota for several weeks” after falling 25 feet from a ladder on his property — denying Republicans an easy “yes” vote if the resolution hits the floor soon.
Given his narrow majority, K-Mac doesn’t even have to pull off his shoes to count that high, and in fact only needs one hand.
How long until every member in the R’s caucus realizes K-mac needs them more than they need him?
Shorter: Who’s tune is K-mac singing today?
Enquiring minds, donchaknow.

His long fight to get put in that seat in the first place would indicate the caucus already has a clue that he needs them.
