Let's give Kevin McCarthy a sendoff worthy of DU

Here's mine: Goodbye Kev. I can't help but remember when you became Speaker
after seventeen votes, and hours of neat fisticuffs and threats. It was obvious that you were very proud of your accomplishment. You looked like a giddy goofus as you happily accepted your role. Those were the good old days of disfunctional fun, weren't they Kev?

But those didn't last long did they? Soon enough everything was in shamble and chaos. Who could have seen that coming? Well, besides everyone? Still, it was sad. But you never backed down to those horrible Dems or tried to work out a deal with the less crazy R's. And for that you can be proud. As you wander off into the well-paid world of RW lobbyists and talking heads, don't forget us! We may forget you though. It's hard to imagine a more nonconsequential Speaker. Kev. It's been real.

of Kevin scurrying down to MAL to comfort a depressed and starving Trump may have been the final nail in Kevin's political coffin...I can only image how depressed that malicious psychopath must have been after his failed attempt to set fire to the Constitution...all those months of plotting an insurrection to stay in power and nada...may that piece of shit rot in hell sooner than later!

He’s headed back to pollute CA with his presence.

If you watch to the and, you can see Kev following in Boehner's footprints, head down, shuffling.
