Feels like everyone is just waiting on "the thing" that's going to happen to spur us all into action... Days go by and I can't help but feel as though it's all falling apart...

What I’m taking out of this is a handful of republicans decided to hold their own accountable.

Whatever the true reason for vacating the speakership is, this is virtually unheard of in our political system today.

I don’t know that I agree or disagree with the move, but what can be said is that Matt Gaetz follows through. Like him or not, it’s more than what most congressmen can say.

I’d prefer for tensions to de-escalate, but there has only been escalation. I don’t know what the solution is.

Is intra-party accountability the answer? Possibly.
