Oh, the drama!
Congressional drama watch: Pelosi says she'll stay on as minority leader, Angus King will caucus with the Democrats.

Heh. As Twitchy reported earlier, the other totally not shocking, “breaking” news this morning was Nancy Pelosi’s declaration that she’ll stay on as House minority leader. Gobsmacked … said no one.
And, Senator-elect King will caucus with the Democrats. How many reporters wasted their mornings so far?

Seriously. Twitter users of all stripes quickly mock the “breaking” news.
RT @rickklein: Angus King to caucus with Democrats, surprising precisely no one.

LOL, “breaking” RT @aterkel: Angus King: "I have decided to affiliate myself w/ the Democratic Party."

Angus King's SHOCKING decision to join the Democrats is SHOCKING. And by shocking, I mean, entirely expected.

Hahahaha! RT @markknoller: King says though he'll caucus with the Democrats he's not "in automatic opposition" to the Republicans.

Even Senator McCain got in on the snarky action.

Stay tuned! We suspect more breaking news will come in this morning. Here’s a hint: Water? It’s totally wet.
