At first, it seemed as if his heir apparent House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy would easily ascend into the speakership and that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise would easily replace McCarthy, and Chief Deputy Whip Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) would easily ascend into the Whip’s role.

Here in the winter of our conservative doldrums as the party of jackasses has once again been trounced by the screaming weenies of squishy establishment Republicans, a spark of hope.
