Now the preachers of merit across NT will have to contend with a 'meritless' GOP Speaker of the House because GOPers in congress couldn 't take the shame of talking big shit for years and having the public see with its own sets of eyes the GOP house flopping around on the House's floor endlessly trying to catch its breath to announce a leader. So now a 'newbie' has the GOP gavel and he being the best they could put out of their . . .  . . . . hat

Own it. MAGA was finally shamed to act. And it can't even get a SENIOR statesman to take the job and govern its herd of GOPers. Ha-ha!  A junior statesman with no proper leadership role was an appeasement selection.

MAGA complains about VP Harris lacking VP credentials and now that noise will fall to the dirt! MAGA just elected its meritless Speaker unanimously, because he was the only 'fit' member to even try after MAGA shitcanned McCarthy. 

MAGA can't govern the United States of America. Oh, Speaker Johnson, watch out for upcoming 'ouster' if you get too reasonable in your 'newbie' job.

Well, GOP House conservatives released the white 'smoke' today; they have a MERIT-LESS 'newbie' Speaker without a lick of experience. To be clear, I don't care who they choose for Speaker for their majority, but since NT GOPers 'love' to whine about democrats' merit to serve. . . . Then, it's fair to point out their lack of consistency
