    I don't see how he survives....unless multiple candidates dilute the opposition to his retaining the Speakership. The better question is not who may replace him, but the direction that Congress will be lead, given the GOP's increased strength from the last election.

    God help us if Gohmert gets it.

    Can anyone, anywhere be more ridiculous than Pelosi?

    If it's possible, Gohmert's the guy.

    No. Absolutely not.

    Pelosi is in an entirely different realm of stupid, ineffective and largely bat-shit crazy politicians. She may be recorded as one of the worst Speakers in American history, if not the worst, of all time.

    She's as politically impressive as Bill Clinton - just in the opposite direction.

    I'm not apologizing for Pelosi, at all, but you're blind and/or incapable of being unbiased if you think Gohmert is even a fraction less batshit crazy.

    I see a 0% chance that Boehner loses his Speaker status. Would love to see it happen but not counting on it.

    I'm not speaking "for" Gohmert, at all.

    But Pelosi is to crazy what Clinton is to charisma.

    Gee, if she was so ineffective you'd think you wouldn't mind her.

    Seems that he is the one not getting the voters message; Moderates were elected, not Tea Party conservatives.

    That's why they are using passing cromnibus to prevent a shutdown against him. Because they're "moderates."

    Gohmert is to his brand of crazy what Eisenhower was to leadership.


    Can we at least agree that both Gohmert and Pelosi suck? Surely that's possible. Then again, maybe it isn't.

    read better. He didn't say squat about effectiveness.

    the vast majority suck, regardless of flavor.

    No question about that, but some suck less than others regardless of flavor. Gohmert AND Pelosi are not among those "some".

    the modern American politician is one of the lowliest creatures on earth.
