WaPo: Marjorie Taylor Greene and her crock-of-bile tears

“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) says he is determined to prove ‘this Republican Party’s a very big tent,’ columnist Karen Tumulty writes in The Washington Post.

“It must be. Where else could you hold the epic two-ring circus that has been going on within the House Republican caucus this week?

“To McCarthy, the dual sagas involving Reps. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the third-ranking House Republican, and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), an unhinged freshman congresswoman, represented a chance to show his mettle. ‘You elected me leader,’ he said during a private session with his membership. ‘Let me lead.’

“What McCarthy actually demonstrated, however, was precisely the opposite of taking charge. The degree to which the Trumpist hard-right is in the driver’s seat became clear when the GOP rallied behind Greene.

“Meanwhile, nearly 30 percent of the Republicans who voted — a surprisingly large bloc — ignored McCarthy’s pleas for unity and chose to oust Cheney from her leadership post.”
