Insanity. Just f*****g insanity.
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.
Quick, somebody count the silverware...
A few more Democrats like Maxine Waters leading Congressional hearings and C-Span will be able market
itself as a comedy network.
Just imagine in 2014 she could be the chair.... If the dems take the House....
Pretty sobering thought...
Socialist...helpin’ Bath-House re-distribute.
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.
Next, President Caligula will name a horse to lead the Senate.
“Next, President Caligula will name a horse to lead the Senate.”
Can’t be any worse than the horse’s ass running now.
Really? How can this be?
Are there no adults in the dem party?
Maxine Waters is an embarrassment.
This friggin’ nightmare keeps getting worse and worse...
May G-d have mercy on our souls....
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.
If the Reps are in charge of the House; how did she get this? Boner must go now.
She is too stupid to balance her own checkbook
My gut is aching, funny stuff ... is this the Onion? Twilight Zone?
*****”This is nothing less than a total mockery of our constitutional republic as we continue to deteriorate into a marxist regime hell bent on failure . The contempt I have for this admin. is beyond the words I can find .”******
BUMP and Dittos
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.
It means that if the democrats retake the House she will be the Chairman. Now she gets to be the chief Thorn in the side of the Chairman
