If you haven't seen it already, Megan McArdle at The Atlantic has a post up entitled Maxine Waters brings the crazy.
It is a clip of Congresswoman Waters' questioning of Treasury Secretary Geithner, which is rambling and, at times, bewildering.
Perhaps Ms. Waters is a nice lady. Perhaps she brings government money to her district like no one else and the people there are greatly appreciative of her efforts. On the other hand, the rest of the country has to endure her service in the congress.
I submit that the United States would, on the whole, be better off if we sent a check to her district in exchange for the promise to keep her home and off Capitol Hill. They could keep electing her and as long as they didn't let her leave the district, we would keep sending the checks.
McArdle says, "she seems to get all of her questions off of the fringier conspiracy sites." I don't know if this is true, but I am sure we would be better off if she would just yield her time and start a blog to promulgate her theories about the "linkages" and the "connections". Who knows, she might be happier too.
