A Democratic lawmaker on Thursday lampooned House Republicans for struggling to find a new Speaker, creating a mock Craigslist ad to fill the position.  

"Are you an American citizen? Do you have experience negotiating hostage situations? Are you ready for the challenge of a lifetime? Then this job is for you!" the listing reads. 
 
His staff did a preview of the ad on Craigslist and took a screen shot, but never actually posted it, Takano's communications director, Josh Weisz, told The Hill. 
 
The mock ad came Thursday after Rep. Kevin McCarthyKevin Owen McCarthyHouse leaders clash over resolution backing ICE House backs resolution expressing support for ICE House GOP reverses, cancels vote on Dem bill to abolish ICE MORE (R-Calif.), the favorite to replace outgoing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), abruptly withdrew his name from consideration. 
 
Another Democratic voice, David Axelrod, the former White House senior adviser to President Obama, suggested on Twitter that Republicans take out a Craigslist ad.
