For reference, Nancy Pelosi holds the previous record for speaking when she was the minority leader.  Spoke on immigration and for 30 minutes less than McCarthy.

Maybe we need a moratorium on having leaders from CA. for a few sessions?

 

I read that McCarthy was only planning to talk about 45 minutes, but was told to shut up, so he kept talking.

Like some posters here, McCarthy’s “speech” was rambling, disjointed, confusing, all over the map, iow, a senseless waste of time.  AND he has nothing to show for it.

Could probably say about the same for the one Pelosi gave that was 8 hours long.  Haven't heard it, but imagine it was less rambling, disjointed and confusing than McCarthy's .  But still a waste of everybody's time.

They really need to eliminate filibusters - both kinds.  The ones where people speak forever and the ones the senators like so much where they just say they will filibuster a bill and then it goes into cold storage.  Limit each person to 15 minutes and no yielding time to someone else ever.

Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces bill that would award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle Rittenhouse for 'protecting the community of Kenosha'

HR6070 intends '[t]o award a Congressional Gold Medal to Kyle H. Rittenhouse, who protected the community of Kenosha, Wisconsin, during a Black Lives Matter (BLM) riot.'

I hope this bill is voted on.   My guess is that most GOP House members don't wish this bill comes to a vote.

But in reality other than killing two people and permanently injuring a third, HOW did he actually protect anything?  He just escalated the situation into a greater conflict.

It will also appeal to the voters in her district and may result in lots of campaign cash being sent her way.

Seek help for your misplaced anger, it will do wonders. What makes you so insecure?

Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene insists House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy 'doesn't have full support to be speaker' and GOP is 'unhappy' with him

50990609-0-image-a-98_1637907564056.jpg

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene insists House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy does not have the full support of House Republicans to become Speaker on Rep. Matt Gaetz's podcast.

So, who does have "full support?"  Who is likely to be elected speaker, assuming GOPers win in 2022?

'Saying I'm a suicide bomber is no laughing matter': Ilhan Omar calls on House leadership to take action against Lauren Boebert after the Colorado representative apologized for anti-Muslim joke

Ilhan Omar calls on House leadership to take action against Lauren Boebert after apology

Minnesota Rep Ilhan Omar responded to Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert's apology on Friday to the Muslim community for a joke she told about Omar that became a viral video. 'Saying I am a suicide bomber is no laughing matter,' Omar tweeted Friday. '[GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy] and [Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi] need to take appropriate action, normalizing this bigotry not only endangers my life but the lives of all Muslims. Anti-Muslim bigotry has no place in Congress.' The Congressional Black Caucus also issued a condemnation of Boebert Friday, saying her conduct was 'morally reprehensible and dangerous' and would lead to further death threats on Omar's family.
