Rep. said. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) may not have figured out how to pass any bills, but he has a certain…way with words, shall we say, in response to political news developments. His reaction to the former Speaker of the House to Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) retirement is par for the course for Georgia’s less productive members of Congress.

McCarthy, who endured a grueling fifteen rounds of votes to finally curl his fingers into the speaker’s mantle, only to have it violently wrested from him less than a year later in a defenestration led by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), announced in a Wall Street Journal op-ed he will retire from Congress in December.

McCarthy’s district is reliably Republican, but until a special election is held (the date to be set by California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat), the House GOP majority would drop by one. The caucus went down after the polls to oust Rep. George Santos (R-NY), the serial fabulist whose staggering collection of lies and schemes finally became too much to bear when a fellow Republican congressman accused Santos of cheating on his mother.

The dismissal of Santos and McCarthy’s retirement announcement clearly ruffled Greene’s feathers, and he took to The Platform Formerly Known as Twitter to air his grievances.

“Well,” he wrote. “Now in 2024, we will have a 1 seat majority in the House of Representatives. Congratulations Freedom Caucus for one and 105 Reps who ousted ourselves for one. I assure you that the Republican voters did not give us the majority to bring down the ship.”

Greene ended on an ominous note: “I hope nobody dies.”
