Reuters: Pelosi rejects Hastings bid to head committee

Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida, impeached as a federal judge in 1989 on corruption charges, dropped his bid under pressure on Tuesday to chair a congressional panel designed to help protect America’s security, a party aide said.

Hastings took the action after being told by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, in line to head the U.S. House of Representatives when the new Congress convenes in January, that she would not give him the coveted job, the aide said.

Nancy loses her battle to have Jack Murtha appointed Majority Leader and now reneges on appointing Hastings to Chair the House Intelligence Committee – angering the Democrat Black Caucus.

Does this show pragmatism?

Doubtful….

Even a MORON would not appoint good ol’ Alcee – impeached federal judge and all.

But will the new Speaker appoint Jane Harman?

No way…….

Flap says NO WAY…….

Look for the third in line – you know the back bencher Latino Congressman – what’s his name?

Texas Rep. Silvestre Reyes

But, there may be some other candidates:

Rep. Norman D. Dicks (D-Wash.), a hawkish member of the Appropriations defense subcommittee

Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.), a conservative African American with experience on the intelligence committee.

Stay tuned……..
