This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that for the Republican party, the way to move forward is only accomplished in reverse.
Since Boehner jumped ship on the Republican speakership of the House and McCarthy’s candidacy for the same position ended in a belly flop, eyes turned to the only other logical party insider to fill the post, Paul Ryan. Ryan however, has been adamant that he does not want the job.
But this group of misfits in the House of Representatives need a leader, and word on the street is, Newton Gingrich is serious about the gig… again!
“If you were to say to me 218 have called you up and given you their pledge, obviously no citizen could ever turn down that kind of challenge,” Gingrich told radio and Fox host Sean Hannity. “This is why George Washington came out of retirement — because there are moments you can’t avoid.”
“Moments you can’t avoid” would be putting on a blindfold and going for a stroll along the edges of the Grand Canyon. Okay, so you can avoid doing that by choosing not to put on that blindfold or walking along the edges of the Grand Canyon. But if Republicans choose Gingrich as Speaker of the House, then like the blindfolded fool walking along the edge… well, somebody should call the Coroner.0
