Rep. Jason Chaffetz Running for Speaker of the House

He has to be better than McCarthy, because everyone, including the homeless feller giving blow-jays under the bridge for a quarter, is better than McCarthy.

Much better, actually. The hobo'll blow you for two bits.

Chaffetz is seizing on McCarthy's Benghazi gaffe:

Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, strongly criticized House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for connecting the Benghazi Committee investigation to Hillary Clinton’s low polling numbers, which critics argued proves political motivation behind the probe.

"I'm very supportive of Kevin McCarthy, but those statements are just absolutely inappropriate, they should be withdrawn, Mr. McCarthy should apologize. I just, I think it was absolutely wrong,' Chaffetz told MSNBC on Thursday.

I think the liberal shrieking over those comments is, of course, completely contrived, but McCarthy also said a dumb thing. The whole point of RINOs, I thought, was that they were supposedly smarter and more sober than the Crazies and Wacko-Birds of the Tea Party.

Now if that's not true (and by the way: of course that's not true), then why would I want a RINO who's every bit as likely to say something grossly impolitic as a real conservative, while also delivering us liberal policy victory after liberal policy victory?
