Desperation breeds contempt — and laughter. For Republican Kevin McCarthy, it seems every day is a new day for him to step in it. And like a great big boney fish flopping around, McCarthy is sticking to the bottom of the ocean.

So what’s he done now? Kevin “I have no idea what I’m doing” McCarthy is blaming high gas prices on the January 6 committee. Really! I mean — could the fish be any more floppy?

McCarthy has not stopped his insistence that the January 6 committee is a bunch of pure partisans — despite the fact that two Republicans sit on this committee. But blaming the committee for gas prices? How stupid does Kevin think the country is?

The answer to that question is — very stupid. Here is what he said: “The one thing I do know, and the American public knows, gas has gone up $1.86 a gallon since the day Nancy Pelosi announced that committee.”

It is truly amazing that this person was ever elected in the first place. This comment most definitely wins the “idiot comment of the week award.” This award is wholly made up by me, but it is nonetheless fitting. His desperation to change the subject is SO palpable. The flopping has increased, and the stupidity is doing back flips.


Of course, social media went into overdrive, mocking the man. I believe that McCarthy knows his job is in jeopardy, and that’s why the stupid factor has ratcheted up. People like Kevin tend to panic when they know they’re on the losing side. So let Kevin talk, but nobody is listening — unless it’s either to laugh or – as in my case — to write an article about it.
