McCarthy, Jeffries votes show The Swamp alive, well

Kevin McCarthy went 1 for 15 in order to assume the Speaker role in the House.

As a quarterback in a high stakes game he would have been benched. The 20 who masterfully exposed him as another establishment pol only interested in the status quo — for both sides — better have documented concessions for their eventual support.

Conversely, the Democrats gleefully tapped Hakeem Jeffries for their new leader. He’s a certified racist and election denier; Google his tweets. Meanwhile, The Swamp is alive and well.
