I just overheard a few minutes of Alex Wagner's feverish coverage of the Kevin McCarthy ascension and I don't quite understand either the fever or even the lead coverage. Will this change in leadership make a difference? asked Wagner of her panel. What of Speaker Boehner? How will the party now proceed? etc. etc.
Hell nobody actually leads these clowns. They're the same ungovernable gasbags they were yesterday and the day before, the same anarchists, the same nihilists, the same irresponsible rubes who have kept millions needlessly unemployed and even more millions in utter despair.
It's their creed. That and their all-too familiar fanatical hatred of Barack Obama are what define House Republicans. And given their equally fanatical home bases, ain't nothin' gonna change till 2017, California's mild-mannered Kevin McCarthy as majority "leader" or no Kevin McCarthy. We--and he--are at the mercy of political monsters.
