  •  This is potentially a huge development (13+ / 0-)

    As a person who "likes a little science in her science" I applaud this little nod to rationality.
    The misuse of "science" by the Repubs and Fundies to suit their dogmatic bent has been making me cranky for a long time now.
    I think Rep. Miller is going to be a busy, busy boy.

      I'm surprised that I haven't seen any comments on this bit:

      And we can look into technology and standards issues. I recall that one or two folks here have questioned the reliability of voting machine technology, for instance. We could hold hearings on that.

      Yes, yes, yes, please hold hearing on that.

        PLEASE hold hearings, and put people under oath, our votes are not being properly counted until we KNOW they're being properly counted.

        I love the sardonic "one or two folks" bit...

        ...we can look into technology and standards issues. I recall that one or two folks here have questioned the reliability of voting machine technology, for instance. We could hold hearings on that.

        DS: Will the subcommittee have the power to subpoena, and is it likely to be used?

        Rep Miller: Yes...
