Oh, goodie. The same old, tired, squishy GOP leadership in the House.

Zitat
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., beat back a challenge from dark horse candidate, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on Wednesday in the race for House minority leader.

During a closed-door vote of all House Republicans, the California lawmaker took a decisive victory against Jordan, bringing in 159 votes to the Ohio representative's 43 votes. McCarthy was initially elected to the House in 2006 and has served as the House majority leader since 2014.

Also Steve Scalise was elected GOP House whip and McConnell majority leader in the Senate.

Jim Jordan will not go away.

Kevin McCarthy has already demonstrated in his Benghazi gaffe that he isn't ready for "prime time".

"McCarthy infuriated Republicans by suggesting the probe into the deadly 2012 Benghazi attack was political in nature, giving fodder to many conservatives already eager to insert new blood into the House leadership. Chaffetz may give them the formidable candidate conservatives have thus far lacked."

Won't Get Fooled Again is a song by the English rock band The Who.

Lyrics:
We'll be fighting in the streets With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again

Change it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fall that's all
But the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution

Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again

No, no! I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?

There's nothing in the street Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Meet the new boss Same as the old boss
