    The circus of this committee is precisely the venue in which his style would emphasize the message of "this is a mockery", while saying it explicitly.

      Grayson also offered Business Insider a preview of what that "nightmare" would look like. During the proceedings, Grayson said he would attempt to draw attention to other issues for which he thought voters would also like select committees to be formed.

      "I'll be asking why there's no select committee on income inequality. I'll be asking why there's no select committee on immigration reform. I'll be asking why there's no select committee on the minimum wage. I'll be asking why there's no select committee on anything that has anything to do with the lives of ordinary Americans," Grayson said.

      Grayson predicted he would draw attention to the 60 people who died from embassy attacks under the Bush administration, as well as questioning why there wasn't a select committee established to investigate the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack.

      Send him, if anyone...  But we probably shouldn't participate, because
      1) EVERYONE can say these things (and more) while the Republican circus is playing,
      2) this is now the most BORING, hashed-over topic in the WORLD, and
      3) people will just get MORE sick of watching Republicans enjoying a circle-jerk when there's real work to be done.  Dems shouldn't be associated with such.
