Good News!

[Content Note: Ad may autoplay at link.]

Well, at least there's one bit of good news in the clusterfucktastrophe known as the Republican Caucus' Search for a Speaker: Indiana Garbage Governor Mike Pence doesn't want the job.
The first-term governor, who was part of the Republican leadership team during his 12 years in Congress, told reporters Tuesday he isn't currently seeking a return to Washington, D.C. — not even as the person second-in-line for the presidency.

"I like my current job," Pence said, while chuckling at the prospect of becoming speaker.
I bet his favorite part about his job is the "Fire Mike Pence" signs in yards all over Indiana! That's certainly my favorite part of his job, anyway.

I love the last paragraph of this story: "Pence, and really any person on earth, is eligible to be elected speaker of the House as the U.S. Constitution sets no qualifications for the job, including being a member of the House or even a U.S. citizen." Big Mouth Billy Bass for Speaker!
