The third and last tiny pig is McCarthy. Best to get moving on the moving process.

McCarthy failed to secure the 218 votes needed to become speaker of the House. Boehner had taken unconventional route to speakership, as a conference and committee chairman, rather than whip. Future of GOP belonged to “young guns,” but a better metaphor now would be the three little pigs. Cantor’s house was blown away by a wolf who said he wasn’t loyal to Donald Trump. The second little pig was Paul Ryan, who built a sturdier house from Wisconsin limestone. McCarthy’s gift was his easy charm; no one would mistake him for a Mensa candidate.
