I as pretty surprised by this, myself:

"Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) abandoned his bid for speaker Thursday afternoon just minutes before the election, throwing the House of Representatives into chaos and leaving the rowdy Republican Conference with no obvious replacement for departing Speaker John Boehner." [http://www.politico.com...]

Apparently, there were even GOP Reps in tears when they heard the announcement [http://www.motherjones.com...].

What is next in the Saga to Replace Boehner? Who will be the next Speaker? What political and governmental impact will this event have? Other thoughts or comments?

Coming from the party at historic lows in virtually level of government, whose unbeatable frontrunner is being criminally investigated, with second place being a socialist and the best hope to win being a plagarist.

You forgot to mention that your party is filled with retarded and moronic candidates.

Donald Trump: "I will be so good at the military, your head will spin."

Ben Carson: "The people at pompeii should have run from the lava."

Ted Cruz: "Gay Marriage leads to Christianity becoming hate speech."

It was. The next quotes were about how their other option was to fight the volcano, and I think it said he would be giving advice on the campaign trail on how to beat volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, and asteroids or something.
"It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here,
And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear - that I'm not here."

I have no hope or desire to chase down these people, but I would like the hypocrisy understood. Clinton is... damaged goods. She is this because of these witch-hunts. People, the general public, should get their head around the fact that the witch-hunts THEMSELVES are illegal.

It's not irrational to think Cuba, Sandinista Nicaragua, and the USSR were communist dictatorships that deserve contempt, not praise.

Who is praising the USSR? Are you saying Sanders does?

Look, any intellectual honesty reading of this is terror over a term is that it is being purposely skewed for political gain. I don't think you, or anyone else on this site is that naive.

Ffs that was back when he was in college in 1965. Literally 50 years ago. If thats the worst you can put on Biden after being Vice Prez for 8 years then he deserves to be elected president more than anyone else

Biden is easily the most qualified and least awful of the Democratic candidates.

So when he honeymooned in the USSR, praised Fidel Castro and the Sandinistas, he wasn't supporting communist dictatorships?

Which was done because he had to go on a diplomatic mission to the USSR at the time he happened to have just gotton married. He made the trip his honeymoon just to kill two birds with one stone.

Saying nice things about them =/= supporting communist dictatorships
