Kevin McCarthy has just announced he has dropped out of the race for the next Speaker of the House. Given the timing, it almost makes you wonder if Charles C. Johnson's rumor doesn't have some validity to it.
Charles C. Johnson, the right-wing blogger has an exclusive, claiming that Kevin McCarthy has been in a long time affair with Rep. Renee Ellmers. Johnson has a mixed track record on this type of stuff, but something else happened yesterday. Rep. Walter Jones (Mr. Freedom Fries) warned candidates for GOP leadership that if they have hidden baggage, then they need to get out of the race. Could it be Jones was talking about McCarthy? Only time will tell.
Seriously. A bit ago MSNBC did a segment on Hillary Clinton's email server and that they discovered 3 emails from overseas saying she had unpaid parking tickets, with an attachment to open and remedy it. No proof that she did open the obvious malware, which most people realize is just that, as emails like this are about as common as air.
And in other news, MSNBC is looking to hire a bunch of new reporters, as many will be resigning just as soon as their $5,000,000 check arrives from a Nigerian prince.
With news out that Shell is abandoning their controversial drilling in the Arctic now that they found there really isn't enough oil up there, we need to really ponder if the same Shell scientists that said there was all this oil up there, if they are the same ones that tell us all the other scientists in the world are wrong on global warming.
You know it's getting real bad for Ted Cruz when he can't even muster one bit of support from his Senate colleagues on his own side of the aisle.
Wish I could say this was a joke, but this is the response of conservatives at a voter's value summit after Marco Rubio announced that John Boehner was resigning from Congress. Really shows the atmosphere and divisiveness that is taking over today's Republican Party.
With a revolt brewing and after hearing the Pope yesterday, NBC news is reporting that John Boehner will be resigning from Congress next month. Not many more details on it yet, but this is a huge breaking story.
A new CBS/YouGov poll out this morning has Bernie Sanders beating Hillary Clinton by 10 points in Iowa and 22 points in New Hampshire. In South Carolina, Clinton still leads by 23 points, however Bernie's numbers are growing and split with Biden. So the big question will be if Biden doesn't get in, will his supporters go to Hillary or Bernie? That could be the key in the Palmetto state, as well as others.
