Next House Speaker: Dick Cheney?

Next House Speaker: Dick Cheney?

House Speaker John Boehner is leaving, and neither Kevin McCarthy nor Paul Ryan wants the job.

Tea Party loon and freshman Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) has a Speaker candidate: Former congressman, Secretary of Defense, Vice President, and unindicted war criminal Dick Cheney. There’s nothing in the rules that specifically says that the Speaker has to be a House member. Or a human being, for that matter.

“Tom Cotton wants Dick Cheney’s ‘steady hand’ as House speaker,” Chad Merda, Chicago Sun-Times

“GOP Senator Wants Dick Cheney To Be Speaker Of The House,” Tierney Sneed, TPM Livewire
