I never thought I would be so embarrassed to be from California.

Every frickin' time McCarthy is announced as that "gentleman from California," I just cringe.

7. I know how you feel

I live in Virginia. When I lived in Richmond, my congresscritter was the execrable Eric Cantor. Then I moved up here to VA-06 where it was the detestable Bob Goodlatte, about whom the only good thing I could say was that he was not Eric Cantor. Now it's that spineless slug Ben Cline. I just cannot win.

3. Don't feel bad; every state has someone to be embarrassed over.

I had Michele Bachmann.

5. Not much worse than Devin Nunes

California has some fine representatives. And some not-so fine. It is "diverse".

8. California also has Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Katie Porter, Maxine Waters,

Ted Lieu, Eric Swalwell, Zoe Lofgren, Pete Aguilar and probably many other great reps I don't know much about. That's a lot to be proud of!

11. Because of its dodgy non-partisan redistricting scheme, Oregon came within 3606 flipped D to R votes

of having HALF (OR-2 R, OR-5 R, OR-6 close to being R) of your U.S. House delegation being Rethugs, despite it being a pretty deep Blue state. Also, in OR-4, the Dem barely topped 50%. .

18. I've wondered

if some years ago the GQP had hoped that promoting McCarthy would return to the fold some of the many CA voters they seemed to be losing. If that was the plan, it looks like it backfired.
