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. 
 
 
Another Democratic voice, David Axelrod, the former White House senior adviser to President Obama, suggested on Twitter that Republicans take out a Craigslist ad.
