Rep. Webster Endorsed By House Freedom Caucus – Will This Throw The Cat Among The Pigeons?

pigeonscatCourtesy of Politico: (Not the most reliable I know.)

The House Freedom Caucus has endorsed Rep. Daniel Webster of Florida in his long-shot bid to become speaker of the House — dealing a blow to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy who had sought the support of the conservative caucus. The GOP conference votes tomorrow on its candidate for speaker.

To be perfectly honest, I haven’t a fecking clue who or what the Freedom Caucus is, but I believe that they have around 40 votes. If they withhold these, they could stop any Republican from getting the 218 votes they need for Speaker.

Are they positioning Chaffetz? Has the shit hit the fan? What the hell is going on?
