Someone’s gonna need to be in charge of this thing. But don’t worry! Nancy’s got the perfect person in mind:

Jim Clyburn, you say? What could possibly go wrong? A lot of things, actually.
But the effort is already running into a wall of resistance from top Republicans, who trashed the panel as unnecessary and raised concerns it would be used as a political weapon.
Very valid concerns. Guy Benson reminds us where Clyburn was recently at on COVID19:

So yeah. Forgive us if we’re not terribly confident in Pelosi’s committee’s ability to do its purported job.
I really have no patience for this. I'm exhausted by the politicizing of everything, esp. a pandemic.Just want to take care of my family, work, pay my bills, give back, and enjoy my freedoms.

Disgraceful. The Democrats are looking to score political points rather than providing much needed help. Let’s hope people remember their sly antics in November.
