Kevin McCarthy, the least-tenured House Majority Leader, now wants to be speaker of the house. As Rachel Maddow reminds us, in his nine years in the house he’s introduced two pieces of legislation. Both were to rename public buildings. This legislative powerhouse is basically good at flame throwing and raising money. And now he wants to be in charge of the House legislative agenda. He wants to lead the Republican caucus. He wants to be two heartbeats away from the presidency.
Despite his right wing-nuttery, the “Freedom” caucus thinks he’s too much of a squish.
And now he’s admitted that the Bengazi hearings are being conducted to reduce Hillary’s poll numbers.
