Foot dragging will continue until moral improves...
Thank you. I don't need to hear you blather on forever, and I do need to be able to quickly see who voted waht.
If he threatened committee appointments before the votes, it will guarantee the house will do nothing after he becomes speaker. We should stop being republicans.
Gaetz for speaker!
Preventing house members from showing up to vote.
Or Jefferies will write more checks to McCarthy voters and flip them.
Dems can peel off if promised concessions from McCarthy.
Dems can send people home to give Republicans more of a majority.
Gaetz crew can peel off and start voting for Jeffries with the threat of electing him if more don't vote for Jordan in next rounds
It IS a game they could play
892,458 absentee votes are found for Democrat Hakeem Jeffries in the middle of the night.
This goes on indefinitely for two years until they pick someone.
This is the constitutional process.
No tricks. Democrats could fold and 16 people just not show up and give McCarthy the majority he needs.
Round 4 tomorrow
Should be settled by a mud wrestling competition between AOC and MTG.
Adjourning because McCarthy needs time to offer bribes to the holdouts voting for Jordan.
Or bribe 16 Democrats to vote for him, and fuck over the 20 MAGA people who voted against him.
Adjourn so the swamp can make deals/threats against those not voting the way they were told too.
McCarthy can go eat a bag of Democrat kid-fucker dicks!
Someone nominate Trump next ballot.
Good way to determine who the uniparty twats are.
House is adjourned until noon tomorrow.
The alcoholics have won.
Well that's fuckin gay
ADJOURNED until noon Wednesday. Vote #3: Jeffries (D) 212, McCarthy 202, Jordan 20. Need 218.
(R) can't agree so we're getting a (D) speaker?
Sounds about right.
That is not how it works.
Anyone can be speaker as long as they have the majority of votes. Doesn't have to be from the majority party or even a member of congress.
Ultimately, it is at the discretion of the membership of the body as to who their leaders are and what rules they will follow.
Hell, they could drop the pretense and just vote in Xi if they wanted to... there isn't even a citizenship requirement.
well at least we get McCarthy? lol
educate me, how do we MAGA with this current vote?
We hold the line.
lol ah yes
How funny would that shit be if Jordan came back tomorrow and had 222? I'd probably piss myself laughing.
Gotta get those 2 AM votes in the door. /s
Why are Democrats only at 212? Are some of them not there?
They are unified but not the majority, we are the majority but not unified because rinos are uniparty sellout faggots.
It’s pelosi 2.0
My guess for the endgame is that Jeffries sends about 60 democrats home, then calls for quorum, which is still present, for one final vote.
What this does is reduce the threshold for a majority from 218 to around 188, thus allowing McCarthy to have a tainted (*) victory, and a throughly fractured GOP conference.
Wish RSNB would keep camera on Gaetz.
Someone needs to inform AOC to come dressed for work, not a dinner party.
That blue dress? Nah, perfectly okay.
She is a millionaire now.
she is a prostitute
Why doesn't McCarthy just give up? Is he such a douchebag and narcissist that he feels entitled to this position?
He already moved into the speakers office so the answer to your second question is a big yes.
Waiting for the uniparty to enact measures to force him in. It'll happen after this round or next.
Yep. I fully expect a couple more rounds and some Dems will change their votes to McCarthy so they can all go home and then claim "bipartisanship". Or Jeffries sends a bunch of Democrats home and they do one final vote with a lower threshold and McCarthy takes it.
McCarthy has already been anointed by the lobbyists and money changers, and already moved into the Speaker's office before the vote even started.
Is that a rhetorical question? Lol
His handlers probably don't want that
Fuck 'em all
Elect The Great White Buffalo, Ted Nugent, and watch the Country either run for cover
Or, Rise up and take no prisoners, until were #1 again
This would be most excellent!
Congress should be called Regress from now on. It is far more accurate.
All republicans suck dead dog dicks!! Find a real man,a real voice like Trump, luke Reagan. Todays conservatives are pure pussies!! Makes me sick!!!!
Well with this going to a 4th vote this is officially the 9th most votes on speaker in US history. Would be funny to see it get into the top 5. I sadly don’t see us beating the record 133 though at least not yet
Not sure but it was the 1857-1859 speaker, most of it was over an abolitionist dem of all things fighting for speaker, later joined reps and became a union general in the civil war.
It took 2 months to get through 133.
I really hope the capitol explodes during the state of the union taking them all out.....the only bad thing would be that such a beautiful and enduring building would be destroyed
At this point instead of draining the swamp blowing it up would work just as well. Too many traitors.
Jesus Christ the dems brought actual bags of popcorn to this. This is humiliating af
get ready for another day of this because pansy cowards are content to sit around and bitch on the internet instead of taking action.
Take action how? It’s a fucking house vote
Cause we are usually the ones owning them on camera. These images will only be used to mock us further. It’s embarrassing
Yeah but there not doing it to Nancy. You realize that right? lol
Somehow I don’t think they’re embarrassed. All I can see is mockery.
NPC identifies with republicans, feels shame for shameless lizard people
So this isn’t a shit show? Whatever faggot. I’m done.
Yeah I agree but this could have been planned ahead of time instead of playing out on live tv
Wonderful isn't it? The handful of non-uniparty members of the house are putting their foot down and telling these motherfuckers we've had enough.
So MTG is now part of the uniparty. She needs to go then. She mislead so many with her larping
That woman wearing the green dress makes me think of House of the Dragon.
Fucking idiots!! Just having a good old time. Bankrupt the country, you people are paththic!!
paththic booty. ooh yeah
Who is McCarthy?
the next speaker of the house
