And yet, she persists


This… this jackass is what Pelosi and the Democrats consider a competent chair of financial services.
Bigger question: how incompetent is the committee’s staff?
I mean, one of them must’a written this question for ‘er.

(What? *heh* Yeah, I’ll bet they write a heckuva Five-Year Plan)

    I heard that Q&A session yesterday, and even on the radio, one could ‘hear’ the smirks on the Bank CEO’s faces as they answered.
    It was right up there with Johnson’s “Guam might capsize” remark.
    What makes this sort of commonplace thing doubly insulting is that the stupid bitch thinks she’s smarter than us and her shit doesn’t stink.

    ^ You don’t have to be the smartest person in Congress,
    just smarter than the one who appoints you to your committee

    ^ So you’re saying Mad Maxine is smarter than Perfidious Pelosi?
    Whew. That’s a tough one. They’re both in a race to the bottom of the dumb pool.

    ^ Okay, yeah, corruption may have more do with it.

    All that time and money spent to get a picture of a black hole, when all they had to do was go to Maxine’s office and watch her suck in every atom of intelligence, never to escape her hearing room “event horizon.”

    I have to wonder if there’s a competition among staffers to see who can get their congresscritter to make the dumbest statement or ask the dumbest question.
    I know, don’t ascribe to malice what could be explained by stupidity.
    In my defense, Congress is full of really malicious idiots.

    ^ Hmmm…
    hadn’t considered the sabotage angle.

    ^ Thomas Wictor has theorized for months that Trump has multiple Judas Goats leading the Dems in their ever-accelerating self-immolation. It’s possible …

    It’s probably that person in her office that’s sniffling and cleaning out their desk, while everyone else is in the opposite corner of the room pretending he/she’s got leprosy.

    The trick of the competition is to get your boss to ask stupid questions/give stupid answers without it blowing up in your face.

    Maxine actually RETWEETED the video at Twitter. I kid you not.

    Yeah? That would make a great TV series,
    like a modern Game of Thrones.
