"Do or Do not. There is no try."

“So Many GOP Options”: Anybody Can Grow Up To Be Speaker Of The House!

I suppose it’s as good a time as any to recall that under the rules of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Speaker does not have to be a Member. And so, you get this entirely non-humorous tweet from a Washington Examiner reporter:

He wouldn’t need any OJT, and all the rumors about his infidelities have long been confirmed, right?

But if you’re going to think “outside the box” for a House Speaker, there are other options, too:

Soeaker Carly Fiorina. would finally have that missing item on her resume–you know, remotely relevant qualifications for the presidency–and could symbolize the fact that just because the House GOP is trying to shut down Planned Parenthood and opposes pay equity is no reason to assume there’s any “war on women” going on.

Speaker Bobby Jindal could draw on his past House experience, and he’d have an excuse to leave Louisiana for good!

Speaker Sean Hannity could cut out the middle-men in Fox News/GOP message communications.

Speaker David Koch could cut out the middle-men, period.

So many options! Who else can you think of, dear readers?

  1. They just may be able to drag Paul Ryan (kicking and screaming) to fill the role!

  2. If I were a betting person, they will ask Boehner to stay in the role longer as the known quantity.
