Well, it took a full 15 rounds of voting, as well as some very serious behind-the-scenes deal-making with the Republican Party’s hard-core MAGA, Christian Nationalist, and insurrectionist election deniers, but Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) finally came up with enough votes from that angry, bickering mob posing as a political party, to elevate himself to that cherished position of power he has so desperately desired for oh so many years, Speaker of the US House of Representatives.

Luckily for him, all Kevin McCarthy had to do to secure the Speakership, was simply agree to allow the House GOP to go full QAnon on the country. He’ll now have the privilege of presiding over a nest of half-witted, venomous pit vipers, exhibiting varying degrees of sanity. That said, if he thinks he’s given them all they will ever want, he’s greatly mistaken. That’s because these are the kind of folks whose mantra is simply, “all I ever wanted from life, is more!”

Frankly, as a veteran, citizen, and US taxpayer, I'm simply overjoyed this sideshow is finally over - so we can now move on to the next outrageous event in this “theater of horrors. “ That, of course, would be none other than the commencing of the American rendition of the “Stalinist Show Trials.” In fact, as one of their first orders of business, expect a fierce debate as to whether it should be Hunter Biden, or Hillary Clinton - who will get to assume the coveted role of “Leon Trotsky.”

Of course, when I think about McCarthy actually “fighting for the right” to manage a chamber full of lethal Komodo dragons, my first thought is this really sounds like a classic case of “be careful what you wish for!” But then I remember, folks like McCarthy and his Republican MAGA monster pals - actually feed off chaos. And, as they’ve just so adeptly demonstrated - they also seem to really enjoy “eating their own. Well, all I can really say to that is - “Bon Appétit!”
