It's Bakersfield (famous only for their wonderful aroma of cow poo) so unfortunately it will just be another maga maroon.

When Los Angeles county was running low on the Covid vaccine. You could just drive up to Bakersfield to get one since very few people in Bakersfield were getting vaccinated.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Kev.

McCarthy, if he were a man, would serve out his term.

I stand corrected!

There is also oil and country music seeping out from under all that cow poo.

Merle Haggard too! The Bakersfield sound produced some of the best country music ever. The good, gritty stuff is making a comeback these days.

Not sure if you all are understanding how big of an -- this is to the GOP.

With Santos gone, their majority was cut down. This cuts it down one --rther.

And with another GOP Rep leaving next quarter, they will be down to a 2 seat majority.

So when he said the rumors of him leaving Congress after he got booted from the speaker seat was just another in a long long long long list of lies from Qevin.

With Santos gone, their majority was cut down. This cuts it down one further.

Don't forget that the GOP gerrymandered districts in FL and LA that helped their majority were ruled unconstitutional.

As much as any recent politician including Donald Trump, Kevin McCarthy is a man who lost all credibility with his colleagues. He lied to everyone about everything. He made promise after promise that he had no intention of ever keeping. Good riddance.

Another one down, a crap load to go. You don't have to go look for political drama, it writes itself in real time. For all intents and purposes, the GOP has already lost it's majority. They can't agree on anything it seems to keep the country budget going and it's showing up with incumbents leaving. Now, the far right has lost it's poker chip. In order for anything to pass, they'll no longer be able to disdain the Dems and get it done. It will take actual compromise to pass anything.

Qevin is the House GOP's biggest fundraiser. This may set them back more ways than one.
