"Pelosi's Unintelligent Choice"

Recently I posted about the scary prospect of Nancy Pelosi choosing Alcee Hastings to head the House Intelligence Committee in the event of a Democrat takeover of the House. Hastings was convicted of bribery and removed from serving as a federal judge.

Ruth Marcus has written a column along similar lines, questioning what such a choice will say about Pelosi and the Democratic Party: "This was no ordinary crime, and Intelligence is no ordinary committee."

It's bad enough Hastings is actually on the intelligence committee. Choosing Hastings, who has participated in bribery, as its chair will prove one more time that most Democrats don't take national security seriously in this post 9/11 world.
