McCarthy might have been the most reasonable person that could get elected. When push came to shove, for whatever reason, he decided to pass the continuing resolution with the help of Democrats.

Unless the next speaker has enough savvy to stipulate that 10 (or whatever) votes are needed to start throwing them out, McCarthy is a warning.

The next person to wield the gavel will probably have no hesitation to shut down the government. Only Koolaide drinkers need apply.
