Quote of the Day, This House Democratic Leadership Sounds PERFECT To Me edition.

Just what the partisan hack ordered, in fact.

Behind [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi [75 years old] are Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.), who is 75, and Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), who at 74 has joked that he is the “baby” in the leadership team. This trio have held the top three spots in leadership for nine years, with Pelosi and Hoyer in the top spots for a dozen years.

It’s not that they’re old; it’s that they’ve all grown barnacles by now.  And the best part? They think that they’re doing something right.

    Heh. Yeah, Congress is increasingly looking like a geriatric ward.. who changes their bedpans?
    More seriously, 75 year olds are not noted for easily making new mental connections .. how are these fossils the “best and brightest”? (and I write that as a person actively gettin’ older ..)
    I posted this link earlier:

    This isn’t a quake, if Boxer does retire, she’s gonna be replaced by another Dem, but it’s worth noting that she and Feinstein – as much as Hoyer and Pelosi – are “hogging the top slots”, eh?
    There’s too many old Dems and – thanks to the direction their proggie programs have taken ’em – not enough good slots for ’em.
