they still mocked her (repugs) and now that repugs are in control (in theory, but clearly not), republicans in their weakened state will be less likely to damage the Country, damage the rule of law, pass stupid stuff, and if anything, showing the rest of us on how NOT to govern.

What a mess. I am somewhat surprised that Kevin M. hasn't made some kind of deal w/ the democratic leadership to gain the speakership (like 'Hey, I will let you rule the House for a year, and then you'll rule the House for the other year).

The democratic powers that be, do have Jeffries running for house speakership. It would bode well I think very much so for the future of the Country if the republicans put Country first and not Party and a few of them join the rest of the democratic members in voting Jeffries in, but I seriously doubt that they will.
