Think she was the Crony Oligarch that claimed she knew how to send people to hell.

Now that could only be true, if she knew how to get there in the first place.

To prevent duplication, please don’t alter the published headline. Thanks.

The story closes: “She joins Jeb Hensarling, a Texas Republican, who will chair the committee.”

So, I’m not sure what “ranking” means. Top Democrat on the committee? Member with longest service? But evidently NOT the chair, which was what I assumed from the headline and lead paragraph.

Maybe we should elect comedians.

I’d take Jon Lovitz over Maxine Waters for that committee.

Maxine Waters is the democRAT who funneled stimulus money into the bank - One United Bank- upon whose board her husband sat as director at the time.

Pathetic for a superpower with very real financial problems to have a racist idiot ranking on a congressional financial panel. There are real financially brilliant people in this country, why aren’t they chosen to fix the nation - threatening problem. The very existence of the USA is in peril. Soon, the USA may be no more relevant than the USSR, which no longer exists, for the same reason the USA will soon no longer exist: financial and political mismanagement.

I of course have no idea of the actual derivation of the word, but to be “embarassed” it would seem like you have to be “bare assed” and feel a tad shamed by it. Since there is no shame in anything this woman (and many dozens more like her) could possibly say or do, this is where the “embarassment” fails as a checking mechanism.

Top Democrat on the committee is correct. I don’t know if the rules are still the same but she is likely the one with the longest service on the committee.

It’s a misleading story, yes.
