Shunning the Sham

It appears that Nancy Pelosi is taking some heat from other Dems in the House over her refusal to seat Dem caucus members on the Republican's sham "bi-partisan" committee to investigate what went wrong in response to Hurrican Katrina. Among those opposing her is Henry Waxman.

I have the utmost respect for Representative Waxman. I can think of nobody, in or out of government, who has worked harder or more consistently over the last five years to expose the corruption and lying of the Bush Administration. And yet the fact that all of his efforts over this time have done virtually nothing to change the Administration's perfidious ways or to compel the mainstream media to cover these shenanigans is ample evidence that it's time to try something new. Pelosi's strategy may not work, either, but it's an attempt to change the accepted way that things are done
