Something to Know - 7 October

Mike Luckovich

I often have better things to pass on than this one.  However, just like people are fascinated with TV coverage of police pursuits, fake wrestling, and hot dog eating contests, there is a something about the current GeeOpie state of internal affairs on their struggle for a new House Speaker that is fun to watch.  Take this latest tidbit from the Tea Party on their strategy and on where they stand:

Dear Juan,

We are hearing that after last night's meeting between four conservative groups in the House and the candidates for leadership, that the conservatives are holding strong and will not vote for McCarthy. This is exactly where we need to be, BUT that means the pressure that will be applied to these conservatives to cave is only going to get stronger.

Call conservatives in the House and tell them to continue to stand strong. Give them encouragement by telling them that millions of Americans are standing with them and want them to continue to push for real change in the leadership of the House.

We've already established that McCarthy is Boehner 2.0 and we aren't willing to settle for that.

Don't fall for the trap of picking conservative "person x" or "person y" for Speaker. The establishment wants to split the conservative block in the House in order to usher in McCarthy and give us the same old leadership. The most important thing right now is that conservatives stick together and deny Kevin McCarthy the Speakership.

Call these conservative members and tell them:

  1. Do not vote for Kevin McCarthy for Speaker
  2. Stick together and use your power as a block to help usher in a better kind of leadership.

We will all wait and see who is their object for "better leadership".  I promise to find something better for you next time.
