Ding Dong

The zombie-eyed granny-starver's political career is dead.  At least for now. He has zombie eyes, after all, which means he may be an actual zombie.

He failed to achieve his most cherished dream of destroying the social safety net and putting millions of elderly and sick people into the streets to suffer and die. But he did manage to deliver the goods for the 1% so now that he's leaving to spend more time with his donors, he should be able to cash out and make zillions.

It looks like it's going to be a fight between Kevin "loose lips" McCarthy and Steve "David Duke's mailing list" Scalise to replace Ryan for speaker. But who knows? They may end up with a nutcase like Mark Meadows of the Freedom Caucus. Trump would be happy with any of them but I'd guess he would prefer McCarthy, whom he calls "my Kevin."
