There was huge news out of D.C. just after we finished the broadcast yesterday. Apparently Maccarthy is stepping down and withdrawing his name from consideration as speaker of the house.
Rumors are flying that Maccarthy had an affair with a congresswoman from North Carolina. Whether it's that or he just simply didn't have the vote, he's out. That leaves John Boehner left to fill the void of speaker until a replacement can be found.
All of this is a direct result of the Tea Party, who's roughly 40 congressmen have successfully made being an establishment Republican difficult if not impossible. WELL DONE!
What is the takeaway from this? What can we as libertarians learn from the success of the Tea Party? We'll discuss it today.
I've also found an interesting story on a gay, black, yoga class that excludes whites. I thought we'd talk a little about that, and I think you might find my perspective interesting.
