    Pod Save America had specific discussion on this today. As McCarthy can't be trusted to stick to any deal, it would have to be done via rules.

    The vote just concluded, I missed the final total, but I do know that the Nays won, with at last count 11 Reps joining with the Dems. Not sure what that now means ... the process of selecting a new speaker?

    Livin' in a sicko paradise-Coolio, updated

    The vote was 208 to 218 with 11 Republicans against the motion to table.

    The GOP no votes:

    • Eli Crane
    • Ken Buck
    • Victoria Spartz
    • Andy Biggs
    • Matt Rosendale
    • Matt Gaetz
    • Bob Good
    • Nancy Mace
    • Tim Burchett
    • Cory Mills
    • Warren Davidson

    The motion to not vote failed, so now they'll vote.

    Since Gaetz got this through with Democratic help does this mean he has to dismiss himself?

    How much longer are these ********ers going to talk? Do the Democrats ever get a turn, or is it just Team Gaetz vs Team McCarthy?

    From TPM:

    "That leaves us back in the situation we were in last January – with one exception. Back then it reverted to the House Clerk who just kept holding votes until a Speaker was elected. It’s something like that. After 9/11 a new continuity of government rule was implemented to preserve the continuity of government. A new Speaker submits a secret list of members who can become Speaker pro-tem if they’re not available. The point of this rule was to deal with a catastrophic terrorist attack. But it seems to apply here as well."

    That last line is delightfully ambiguous. Does he mean the pro-tem thing applies here, or that this is a catastrophic terrorist attack?

    So basically the Dems own the ensuing chaos now. And yes they do… by siding with the chaos agent wing of the GOP. Success!
