I agree Bigun.  You can always pick nits with these things, but I am okay with the choices.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

It will be interesting to see who Pelosi seats.  I gotta believe this has too much potential to erupt into a real-deal scandal for the Dems to boycott.  And then, the Committee rules will be interesting.  Gowdy has to hold firm on no 5-minute preambles/speeches with no substantive questions as the Dems are wont to do.

It sure will be interesting to see who she picks. I am sure it will be the loudest pyles she has in House.

I suspect so, but that would be a mistake in my view.  They need to take this seriously.

This isn't going to operate in the same fashion you are used to with standing committees! There will be at length depositions of witnesses prior to hearings and most of the questioning in the hearings will be conducted by Majority and Minority counsel.

I was as well.  But the committee is solid.

The only faith I have in this is because you say so.
