I have to say that MSNBC's coverage of the 14th speaker vote is awful

I can't watch MSNBC with their horse-race mentality and steve what's his face up there giving all this coverage to a bunch of moronic insurrectionists without ever reminding the viewing audience what these people are really about. Back to Cspan.

2. Sounds entirely on brand for them though...

It's not like that is an inconsistency on their part.

3. They've been awful since this vote thing from the start.

It's not complicated math that requires his "math genius" knowledge. This is not an election where district to district knowledge is needed (I like him on election night). This is a simple 400ish votes. You either reaches majority or not. No need to try to treat it like complex math problem.

Cspan works too if you turn it off before they have the stupid call in show.

6. I turned it off.

These shitsacks are not worth my attention when it's time to unwind, relax and prepare to sleep. Their self absorbed important drama is not going to be part of my Friday night.

And I decided tonight that just as I rarely refer to the orange one by name, I will no longer refer to the party of Lincoln by its name. Instead, members of the political organization once known as the Grand Old Party will now be referred to as shitsacks because that is all they have become in my view: containers of fecal matter.

Simplifying it and laying out possibilities for even the most casual of viewers

or leading if they canít decide on a speaker after 14 votes over a week
