Randy Rainbow has turned his sights on newly minted Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, and the result is hilarious.

It famously took 15 votes to make McCarthy speaker, as many of his fellow Republicans, who now have a majority of seats, wanted someone more radical to lead them. To win the speakership, McCarthy cozied up to many of his party’s most far-out members, such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, who got a seat on the prestigious Homeland Security Committee. She had been stripped of her committee assignments in 2021 because of her bizarre and shocking statements; for instance, she once endorsed executing prominent Democrats.

Rainbow takes McCarthy and other Republicans to task in “Speaker of the House,” a parody of “Master of the House” from Les Misérables. “What an ordeal / some GOP / more like The Real Housewives of DC,” Rainbow sings. “Thought his goose was cooked / thought his dreams were tossed / this slimy, climby manboy who damn near lost.”

“Speaker of the House / doling out the bribes / lost so much he’s giving Susan Lucci vibes,” the comedian continues. “Pissing off the left / paying off the right / pushing an agenda of revenge and spite. / Never will he lead this circus / poor ol’ power-hungry whore / think they hated Nancy? / I can’t see why they wouldn’t hate you more.”

Along the way, Rainbow gets in digs at Republican House members Greene, Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz (who almost got in a fistfight with McCarthy when the votes were going on), and serial liar George Santos.
