When the Republicans won a majority in the US House of Representatives in the November election, Nancy Pelosi found himself unemployed and the House struggled to find a new speaker. Pelosi will continue to serve as a congresswoman, but the position of speaker is now in the hands of Kevin McCarthy.
It took 15 tries before the House of Representatives finally decided on McCarthy, and he was only able to secure the position after making so many concessions to Republicans that he will now be indebted to them as long as he holds the gavel. His concessions include decentralizing his own power and agreeing to a new rule that will make it easier to oust him. The entire process of picking a new speaker took days and was so turbulent that Congressmen Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) and Mike Rogers (R-Alabama) nearly clashed on the floor of the House of Representatives.
What a way to take over the office! During all this hype, more than enough material has been gathered for the comedy gold fallout that is destined to follow. #KevenMcCarthysWeekendPlans is trending on Twitter now and it’s amazing how many people have a sense of humor.
He wanted the position so badly that he was willing to give up anything it was worth having. Pelosi has the last laugh. She didn’t have to give up the power of the seat just to sit in it.
His weekend plans might include self-punishment, but he’s already been punished. If he feels the need to beat himself up some more over this, there are several interesting methods he can try.
At least Pelosi knew what she had when she was in office. It’s like he’s been given the golden goose, but only to carry it around for them while his fellow Republicans make all the decisions and defy whatever he’s trying to do.
The jokes can get ruthless. Not only does the elephant ride on its back in an illustration, but it’s now reading a book on how to be a good lap dog.
The jokes will linger for a long time because McCarthy forgot the first rule of the rise to power: It’s only good to keep power once you get there. This will be the longest four years of his life, and that tenure will be difficult to reverse.
