If you thought that some of the choices for House committee chairmen were dismal, most of the Senate picks are scandalous. The biggest rinos like Snowe, Collins, McCain, Hutchison, and Lugar are ranking members of standing committees. And yes, Lisa Murkowski is the ranking member of the Energy Committee! Way to go Mitch McConnell. On top of that, we have the biggest porker, Thad Cochran as head of Approps. And Mr. gays in the military, Richard Burr, as head of Veterans Affairs. The only good picks were Inhofe and Sessions. At this rate, it will take a decade for the conservative members to overpower the rinos with seniority.
