So, I wanted to take note that the replacement for John Boehner is very much contested. There's Kevin McCarthy, who recently suggested that a 72-week old probe was all about shafting the Hillary Clinton campaign for presidency, which seems to have been a typical moment of bad articulation. There is David Duke without the baggage, except for all the baggage, Steve Scalise. And maybe a player to be named later as a total joke.
So Jason Chaffetz is a real thing that could happen. He's down with a shutdown or fiddling about with the debt ceiling. He bullied the Planned Parenthood lady. So basically, he's an idiot asshole, and completely ready for the job.
I think Chaffetz is the likely favorite, but we can tune in 10/29 to know for sure.
Update: I can't believe I forgot Florida Man Rep. Dan Webster. I do think he's not as likely to be Speaker, though.
Update 2: And apparently "Chaffetz" has now become a verb.
