Whoah! Kevin McCarthy drops out of race for Speaker of the House

And here’s Jason Chaffetz dancing on the still-warm political corpse of Kevin McCarthy. Seems real broken up about it.

Paul Ryan says he won’t run for Speaker, so I guess that leaves Louie Gohmert or a sentient AR-15:

“Kevin McCarthy is best person to lead the House, and so I’m disappointed in this decision. Now it is important that we, as a Conference, take time to deliberate and seek new candidates for the speakership. While I am grateful for the encouragement I’ve received, I will not be a candidate. I continue to believe I can best serve the country and this conference as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.” – Rep. Paul Ryan
