1. Why not Limbaugh?

 

He's the real leader of the party.

6. The next Squeaker of the House, maybe

Casanova Gingrich has been Speaker already, and that didn't turn out so well.

Granted, Bonehead isn't turning out very well, either.....

9. I don't care as long as he/she doesn't cry in self pity at the drop of a hat

I'm sick of seeing the boner's chin all wrinkled up and shivering in self pity. Ack!

13. Heh, heh...

But seriously, there are too many people wanting power in Washington that they'd give it up to Newt.

12. I doubt it, but isn't it interesting that the Speaker does not have to be a member of the House.

I only learned that fact recently, and it surprised me.

14. If that's the case, then why isn't Grover

15. What!??? How can that be?

How can the House rules allow an unelected person to lead it? That makes aboslutely no fucking sense. Granted, they're getting their marching orders from corporate putocrats and lobbyists, but I seriously have my doubts that the congressional rules allow a non-member to actually lead that legislative body.
