Gohmert offered Gingrich up but nope, they want to go with the weepy bonehead.

Why would he nominate someone for speaker who hasn't been in the house for something like 14 years? I guess it's possible, but unlikely a non-member can be Speaker.

Yes, it i spossible and it is legal, and at this point I would say that it is necessary.

The house GOP stands for absolutely nothing.

They are worthless beyond my ability to even describe what worthless is.

I would support Newt for Speaker.

The Constitution does not require that the Speaker be an elected Member of Congress, but no non-member has ever been elected to the office.
