Flotsam and Jetsam - Speaker Voter Day 3 - DIY

So here it is three days after the start of the new Congress, and the Republicans have failed to congeal around a speaker. I only sort of know the issues; clearly a group of Republicans really don't like Kevin McCarthy; he is a squish and a deal maker, but that's kind of the nature of the job. The time to have worked this out was between the election and the opening of Congress.
