ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Kevin McCarthy Drops Out of House Speaker Race (JENNIFER STEINHAUER and DAVID M. HERSZENHORN, OCT. 8, 2015, NY Times)

Representative Kevin McCarthy on Thursday abruptly took himself out of the race to succeed John A. Boehner as House speaker, apparently undone by the same forces that drove Mr. Boehner to resign.

Mr. McCarthy announced his decision at a meeting of Republicans in the Capitol, and the gathering quickly became chaotic, with many members unable even to hear what was being said. Mr. Boehner requested unanimous consent to postpone the election -- rather than immediately moving to vote on the remaining two candidates -- and then announced, "the meeting is adjourned."

It's like the Iran vote, they get to pretend they opposed Boehner but keep him as Speaker.
