He hangs out with billionaire Elon Musk, rides bikes with actor Kevin Spacey and counts Arnold Schwarzenegger and Condoleezza Rice as buddies.
He visits Silicon Valley almost every month, and flies from Washington to his district in Bakersfield, Calif., virtually every weekend to see his family, even if he stays for just 12 hours. When schmoozing with celebrities, the onetime deli owner often snaps a selfie on his iPhone hell show his collection to anyone who wants to see it. He gushes about the painting of President Abraham Lincoln in his office or the modernized version of Washington Crossing the Delaware displayed in his conference room.

I always took him for a Yes Man.
I always took him for a Yes Man.
Looks like he’s become a D.C. politician given the lack of time he spends in his district. I notice Conservative politicians get corrupted easier the more time spent in D.C. getting wined & dined by corporatists and k street lobbyists representing corporatists.
Re: “CA gets seceded to Mexico in my United States plan.”
McCarthy’s Congressional District is ahead of schedule.
It’s 40% Hispanic.
And 45% white.
He gets a F-minus from Numbers USA!
Out of 535 US Senators and Congressmen, only 9 got an F-minus.
And three of them are Democrats with Hispanic names.
He’s just Eric Cantor’s understudy and shouldn’t be in leadership.
McCarthy to me is a frat boy. What’s he been around for like 6 years and he’s now going to be the leader? This is a guy who only cares about power, and not the conservative cause. He is an empty suit who comes off on TV as very unserious and unprepared, no conservative wonk for sure. He may have been okay as a whip to schmooze, backslap, and round up votes. But as a Republican majority leader he’s unfit.
He needs to go too, and he can take absentee Pete Sessions with him.
Sort of looks like, out of the frying pan (boner) into the fire. The GOP may really be the Stupid party.
Another Beltway fever-addled celebrity sycophant?
Hes just Eric Cantors understudy and shouldnt be in leadership.
Although nobody wants him, it seems like he is the only one left that stood up to take the job. Where are the conservatives? Tea Party types? Nobody had the guts or desire to run? I am rather surprised.
And this differs from the rest of Congress how?
This is a SLAP in the face of the Virginia electorate Eric Cantor’s personal
pick!!!!!!!!! These SOB’S are just shoving this down our throats to SHOW US WHO’S BOSS!!!!!! I despise these BASTARDS and BASTARDETTES!!!!
When someone or something is going to explode, just get out of the way so you don’t get any on you. What level headed conservative at this late juncture is going to step down into the Boehnor pit to get himself slimed with the rest of the Progressive Republicans?
Just step back out of their range and keep firing David Brat style for effect. The leadership issue will be resolved after the elections, unless Obama usurps his authority and cancels them for the crisis in the Middle East that had just reached our shores.
Looks like this “Meet Your New Majority Leader” article has been ready to go for some time.
This evil creature sold out the CA Gop in the 2010 state redistricting system Rigged by the Dems to save his seat.
He killed the Gop there in one sweeping decision.
He Must Be STOPPED !
A younger,metrosexual Juan McCain.
The same can be said about the entire leadership of the GOP. They are WORSE than the Democrats. At least the Democrats are honest about their intentions.
You are 100 percent right!
