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.
