Letter to the editor: Choosing a speaker was supposed to be the easy part


After watching 15 votes to elect Kevin McCarthy as House Speaker, with near fights and obscenities flying, the “clown car” crashed.

Apparently, Jan. 6 is the date the Republicans prefer to have their fireworks displayed at the Capitol. The GOP revealed, for the whole world to see, their total inability to govern. Choosing a speaker was supposed to be the easy part.

The party of disunity managed to take more speaker votes than any time in the last 164 years.

Pass out the popcorn, the next two years promise to be very entertaining.
