WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight committee, plans to launch a campaign for House speaker to replace retiring John Boehner, Politico reported on Friday.

Representative Kevin McCarthy remains the favorite to replace Boehner, who announced his resignation a week ago.

    And why not? Jason is just as big a douchebag as all the other Cons.

    You go chaffetz. Let’s get a competition going.

  • Dominick Vila

    This partisan zealot is unfit to run for Speaker of the Humane Society. If nothing else because canines and felines would outnumber human by at least a 10 to 1 ratio. Not to mention the way puppies and kitties would be treated AFTER they are born.

  • oldtack

    Let’s get all these clowns in the ring and watch them devour one another. The sad thing is – The Grand Old Party is no more. It has been replaced by the pseudo NSR posing as Tpesa.

  • Whatmeworry

    He is far more reserved and better educated than what he Dem’s had with Peeelosi

    • Bob Eddy

      Not true. A BA in communications putting him in a category with such illuminaries as Sara Palin…and looking at his chart in the hearings where he showed 300k is bigger than 900k he may be about as bright as Palin.

      • BillP

        You are so correct on the chart issue. The left Y axis shows 2 million much higher than 290 thousand but on the right Y axis 330 thousand is almost as high as the 2 million on the left Y axis and way higher than 935 thousand on the right Y axis. Of course in the right wing world this is taken for fact. Go figure.

      He is educated, he is idiotcated

    • Linda Rae Ketter is a fat cow like dannno

    • My lovey dovey Linda Rae fell off the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down

    • Daniel Max Ketter

      Republicans have always been a joke to the taxpayers. If it weren’t for us teamsters with the UAW fighting the fight, the right wing fascist managers would have taken over Ford Motors

  • This is how it is possible to earn fifty-five dollars /hour… After searching for a job that suits me for 6 months , I started making cash over this internet-website and today I am very satisfied. 3 months have passed since being on my new job and my income is around 5000 bucks/month -Check internet-company i mentioned by following link on MY___-_PROFILE__

    He’s shown in recent days that he’s not up to the job. He was cleary out of his element with the President of Planned Parenthood exposed his lack of chops. The man’s a light weight and a stooge for the trouble bagger element in the House. In other words, just the right man for the job in their eyes.

    Really? gorilla-brained maroons?

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    All Chaffetz proves is that these boys think they are ROCK stars. Give them 10 second of publicity and they are ready to rock and roll into jobs they have ZERO qualifications for. Another Rock Star created by the Koch boys.

    These days, the other half of the US with the progressive, educated brains are seeing the Koch GOP Hitler Youth Rock Stars as what they really are: half educated morons.

    This woman hater should not even be elected. Only fool will vote for this hateful Christian.
