Would that be sort of like a Reverse Red Tsunami?

It would be another episode in the never-ending saga of The Cult That Couldn't Shoot Straight.

I'm torn.

Nothing would please me more than watching that opportunistic turd McCarthy fail.

But it scares the hell out of me who what lunatic they manage to elect instead.

So what happens if/when there is no Speaker? Is there a backup? Or does Congress just continue to not do anything?

Could be. In fact, the Speaker doesn't even have to be a member of the House.
