Rep. Pete Stark to replace Charles Rangel as committee chair


By GottaLaff

"Liberal" is such a pretty word. Let's use it often:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has picked liberal firebrand Rep. Pete Stark to replace ousted Chairman Charles Rangel on the tax-writing committee, according to a House leadership aide. [...]

In Stark, Pelosi is picking a fellow Californian to head one of the House's most powerful committees. [...]

In a statement, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Melanie Sloan said, "By forcing Rep. Rangel out, Democrats undercut Republican efforts to portray them as soft on ethics, the very strategy that returned Democrats to the majority in the 2006 elections."

Too bad Dems are soft on so many other things.
