Reports have just hit, in the last few minutes, that House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Cal.) is no longer seeking election as Speaker of the House of Representatives. If Speaker John Boehner’s announcement that he was quitting was an atomic bomb, this notice amounts to a meteor, landing on New York City. I know this crew claims it knows how to govern, but all of the evidence suggests a contrary conclusion. Frightening times!
I’m not predicting anything, but I won’t be shocked if Speaker Boehner announces a change in plans. We may be looking at no changes for a while.
