I guess this is a good place to put this and the old thread has topped out at 500
For those that dont already know, the Speaker of the House does not have to be a House member. I am hearing talk that if the Reps take control of the House after the next election in 2022, they may try to elect the orange buffoon to the Speaker position. I wouldn't put it past them to try and it could actually succeed assuming that he would want it.

I’ve heard that. I imagine his first act would be to impeach Biden and Harris.

But I can’t see McCarthy handing over the gavel willingly.

If Trump gets the gavel, he could hire Kevin to shine his shoes, he would jump at the chance.

but my question, can someone under criminal charges be eligible to be the Speaker? I’m starting to feel like Pollyanna, but I still hope Trump will be brought to justice.

again, more status quo than decline
I saw that but have to wonder if the devil might be in the details. Sometimes it may be better for all to shelter in place rather going out and exposing themselves. It does sound bad but I dont know the answer yet in this case.

What the hell?!

We have to be living in an alternate reality. Do we have to wait five years for normal people to return? (Marvel reference)
Conservatives have been living in an alternate reality for a long time. Blundering into wars for no good reason(where were the WMs, why didn't we quit when we were ahead when the Northern Alliance toppled the Taliban?), electing an out-of-control autocrat with mental disorders as POTUS, demonizing the only members of Congress in their side of the aisle with any decency left (as RINOS!!!!), stacking the SC with activist, right-wing judges, and don't get me started on Bush v Gore.

if you want to hang your hat on that assumption, go ahead.
I said from the beginning that is only a possibility and should be considered before jumping to any conclusions. Probably more likely that it is just management acting like the sociopaths that a disproportionate number are. I just like to look at all possibilities before jumping to conclusions.
