Meyers and Colbert take closer looks at the Republican House majority

Now that Kevin "Pickled Tongue" McCarthy won the Speaker's gavel after fifteen ballots, it's time to examine how he and his slim majority plan to govern. Seth Meyers examined how that's going so far in Unhinged House GOP Wants to Impeach Biden, Claims Left Is Canceling Cowboys: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at the slim new Republican majority in the House trying to move on after last week's unprecedented meltdown with incredibly weak Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who has openly admitted he is indebted to Trump for his position.
Despite the lack of "high crimes and misdemeanors," I'm afraid that the far right of the GOP will find some grounds for impeachment, no matter how shaky. However, that would make Kamala Harris the President. I think they would like her even less. Maybe their plan is that the House would refuse to confirm the Vice President she would nominate, clearing the way for McCarthy to assume the Presidency when Harris is impeached and convicted. Fortunately, that won't happen with a Democratic majority in the Senate, so they're just putting on a show.

As for now-Representative Ryan Zinke, I haven't mentioned him on this blog since 2018 as an example of the irony of the slogan "drain the swamp." He's a fine one to talk about corruption.

Stephen Colbert also examined the House Republican majority in House GOP Shows Off Diversity | The Many Aliases of George Santos | Will Gas Stoves Be Banned?

Members of the House GOP went on Fox News last night to boast about the diversity of the party, Rep. George Santos refuses to resign despite being outed as a serial liar, and Stephen is not interested in switching to an electric stove.
Yes, the House Republicans are more diverse now than any time since Reconstruction, but they are still much less diverse than the Democrats. As for George Santos, he'll be a great inspiration for comedy as long as he stays in the news, which might be much longer than he stays in the House. Will he last longer than a head of lettuce? Ask Liz Truss.

Stay tuned.
