    Wiki said he’s a far right Christian before someone cleaned up the entry. I like him more all the time.

    I do like me some extremists!

    They call ALL Christians ‘fundamentalists’ they don’t even know what it means.

    McCarthy and his supporters are the most foul examples of the political class.

    Representative Johnson is my congressman. His son is very good friends with my son. I could not be happier with this choice. In fact, I sent my son a message this morning asking him what he thought about the fact that his friend’s dad is now the second most powerful man in the United States government.

    Humble guy. Very approachable.

    Johnson was a great selection. A great first step to restart MAGA.

    Evidence that McCarthy is the villain I always suspected. Good riddance.

    I follow anything Larry Kudlow supports. That’s how much I revere him. By the way, he did not support the take down of McCarthy but that’s old news at this point. I’m happy Mike Johnsen was selected. Let’s move on.

    Great! Finally. Hopefully there aren’t any lasting wounds. But I doubt that.

    Wounds.  What wounds.  This was a process toward progress.  What wounds.  McCarthy was the chaos creator.  What have we wounded?  K Street?  The donor class?  What vital laws have we missed passing?

    I don’t follow politics close enough any more (it just grinds your soul) to really know how good or bad McCarthy was, but when the editorial boards of the Wall Street Journal and the NY Post, Kudlow, Hannity, Mark Levin, and scores of other conservative voices, we’re all against the take down, what am I supposed to think?  And also Donald Trump supported him. Frankly I don’t recall seeing conservative of note not supporting McCarthy. So what am I supposed to think?  

    Johnson certainly looks more appealing to me and I pray he does great, but I fear within the caucus there are some nasty wounds that are not going to be healed. What’s done is done. Let’s hope they make the best of it.

    Even a lot of otherwise-very-conservative people, including pundits, have a hard time with upsetting any kind of status quo, even a bad one.  They value “stability” – even empty stability – far too much.

    Sorry, I could only give this one ‘like.’ 

    Kudlow chimed in with his happiness. Few people trust the path forward when it isn’t completely defined, yet it rarely is. The fainting couches are clear once again, and those who made use of them will conveniently forget. That’s okay by me, it’s time to move forward.

    Well, your conservatives of note and mine maybe a little different.  Kudlow is just okay to good.  And I don’t follow politics as I could, but I didn’t believe one single word of the “Chaos!” cry.  If McCarthy as Speaker was a liar and a secret ally of the Left in Congress, I say keep taking them out until you find a good one.

    And yes, it looks like it paid off!  With Johnson’s election.

    I don’t see any wounds except on McCarthy, who was apparently even traitorous to his own party members.

    Yeah, the problem there is that if Kudlow’s way had been followed, there’d be no Speaker Johnson for Kudlow to praise!

    Yeah, in my family I’m known as the risk averse one, maybe resulting from instability in my formative years or perhaps genetic, but I was with Matt Gaetz on this one.

    If there was ever any question about the correctness of unseating McCarthy, all doubts should be removed by the revelation of his attempt to sabotage Scalise and Jordan. He’s a villain.

    Bill Kristol chimes in:

    Wasn’t this the very issue that started McCarthy’s downfall. McCarthy started dealing under the table with Democrats on that issue and continued that under the table dealing during the Republican Conference after he was removed. This might be the end of any influence for Kristol.
