how about newt gingrich again?

One observation.

The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected House Representative, though every Speaker so far has been an elected Member of Congress.

If the Republicans really and truly want Eric Cantor, who was next in line before being ousted in a surprise Tea Party winning primary, they can go ahead and get him.

Then again, the “tail biting the dog” effect that ousted Boehner and now Kevin McCarthy started with that election…

So maybe they can all rally behind Dave Brat?

… No… we need someone in there who’s pursuing Mark Levin’s so called “Liberty Amendments”.  Everyone else, including Dave Brat, would be a “RINO”.

(and note, yes, the “Newt Gingrich for Speaker” clarion call is a hell of a lot like the “Michael Dukakis for Interim Senator” clarion call, where at the time it was a matter of concern, it became a “thing” because it just kind of sounded cool.)
