    leadership.) I think you'd regret it once you saw how she used that power to make national policy--in tandem with the wingnut crazy demagogue stuff.

    •  One good thing is that The Boehner had to intevene (4+ / 0-)

      Going after Huma Abedin finally pissed off the leaders of all three branches. Regardless of seniority, her chances of top leadership on the more powerful committees is lessened. She was admonished along with several other complete idiots including the dumbest member of Congress, Louis Gohmert. Yet he'll likely be reelected. So it's important to understand that It's not yet over for MB.

      The worst flaw in Congressional procedures, imo, is the weight given to seniority. A few more terms in Congress, and the possibility of Speaker Bachman isn't so far-fetched. After all, we ended up with Boehner, Gingrich, etc.

      Another term for MB would put her way too high on the list.

      Reelecting MB is equivalent to letting Frank Gaffney loose in Congress. Wait. That's already happened.

      You're spot on about this, Bill.

      She MUST be stopped.

      I need to win the lottery, though. Being unemployed and broke all the time really sucks.
