    to chair Indian Affairs committee because of Senate rules and that is why he is trying to get a special committee formed right?  No one is insulting Native Americans, it's just that McCain is going to be rendered irrelevant in the Senate now that he is chairing that committee instead of the prestigious foreign services committee.

      He'll be "ranking member" at best since Democrats still have control of the Senate -- not sure who the chair is right now but hope it's someone with some guts to get stuff done for our First Citizens. The fact that Native Americans are treated like strangers in their own home is criminal.
