Republican Kevin McCarthy, who won and lost the role of Speaker of the US House of Representatives in a tumultuous nine months this year, said in a Wall Street Journal column on Wednesday that he will leave Congress, bringing an end to his congressional career.

"I have decided to depart the House at the end of this year to serve America in new ways," McCarthy, 58, wrote. The departure of the former party leader and campaign fundraising juggernaut, who helped Republicans take control of the House in 2022, could hamper party hopes of retaining the majority next year.

What’s the point of having a majority if the votes aren’t unified?
Well, thanks to McCarthy taking his toys and going home, Santos (who is an odious person) getting the boot (they could have censured him and kept him till next election) and somebody else who’s leaving by year’s end the 4 seat majority will have whittled down to a 1 seat majority. I have the feeling that before long the Democrats will have the majority and Hakeem Jeffries will be Speaker and the Dems will own it all. The Republicans are basically the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.
