If their choice is to support a stone-cold RINO or put a Dem in the seat, there really isn't much of a choice, is there? The way I see it, McCarthy could accept that a large number don't want him and he could step aside for the good of the team. If he refuses, that should nuke his power going forward.

Yeah, well that ditz Palin could have stepped aside but didn't, and probably cost them the House seat in Alaska.

When a pol steps aside for the greater good it will be the first time in memory.

BTW A majority of the House is needed to elect the Speaker and I don't see any Republicans voting for any Democrat.

Nope, AK rigged the election towards the commies so that bitch Murkowski could keep her seat.

It's hard to imagine that this is the technicality they're going to use to put that whining pussy, McCarthy, in. America loses again.

I didn't mention the Senate seat, I said the House seat.

Palin staying in made it a three-way race and Republicans split their votes and the Democrat won the sole AK House seat.

Sitting down in front of my computer
Taking Pelosi out as Speaker and Dems out of the majority was best for the country, but amazing how GOP could still f*-up a win.
You people are just being hysterical fools.

You don't think the Republicans will ensure they have the votes BEFORE the vote is held on January 3rd?

It amazes me that so many Republicans believe the media slime about Palin and others. Palin is fantastic as are ALL of those derided by the lunatic leftard media.

Palin got more Republican votes than Begich. As we say here HIS preferences leaked and gave the seat to the Democrat. Begich was the one who should have bailed!!!

Did you follow the ranked choice rigging debacle in Alaska?

Yes; over 30% of Begich's voters did NOT vote for Palin; 20% did NOT second Palin(blank) and 12% gave it to the Democrat. (from memory).

That's 30% of Begich's vote "leaked".

That commie ranked choice BS was for all races. And where did the second and third choices go in the house race? And why did so many republicans not make a second choice? It wasn't Palin's doing.
