For his part, Burchett probably came closest to the reality of the situation when he said McCarthy was a “bitter” man going through the motions before he becomes a professional former Republican, a role RINOs like former Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and Ohio Gov. John Kasich have managed to turn into quite lucrative careers. “[McCarthy’s] angry and I’m sure he’ll be angry for the rest of his life, but I always, when people do something like he did I always wonder why they don’t look at themselves,” Burchett told CNN. “It’s always that they’re gonna blame somebody else.” “He’ll enter into a successful job in lobbying,” Burchett added. Either that, or he can get CNN and MSNBC into a bidding war for his services, where he can appear on various shows as Not That Kind of Republican™ who claims to espouse real conservative values while everyone else with an R after their name and an actual elected position has gone insane. This grift has gone on for decades now — and there’s no reason for the former speaker not to milk it, considering it shows no sign of abating. If you want to watch his full demo reel, be sure to watch “Inside Politics” this Sunday. Or not. Rest assured, you’re going to get plenty of whatever bitterness he’s going to be peddling this weekend in the months and years to come.
