Who will be the next Speaker of the House?

As unpalatable as John Boehner has been to us, today's events make it obvious that he will not retain his leadership post when the next Congress convenes. So...reading the tea leaves...who is the early favorite to replace him?

1. Eric Cantor?

 

He was seen strutting away from Boner's debacle looking like the cat who ate the bird.

4. I don't think the teabaggers could come up with the votes by themselves.

When the 113th Congress convenes, the House of Representatives will have a total of 233 Republicans. The House Tea Party Caucus currently has only 61 members.

5. That's a relief

I would hate to see Speaker Michelle Bachmann.

9. Not much danger of that.



But the teabaggers are not the only GOPee extremists in the House. No siree.
