Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) pulled a pretty nice troll on the Republican party by posting a Craigslist job listing looking for a new Speaker of the House. Takano wrote out the ad and then posted a screencap of the ad on his Facebook page.
Here’s the text of the ad. This job actually looks pretty easy, by the looks of the post.
