The Select Committee On [Insert Fake Scandal Here]

Written by SK Ashby

As far as Freudian slips go, this one is fairly entertaining.

The Select Solyndra IRS Committee to Investigate the Benghazi ACORN Birth Certificate mistakenly (or not mistakenly?) referred to itself as the "Select Committee on Secretary Clinton Emails" on its official website.


The committee has updated their website to correct the supposed error, but I'm still laughing.

We have not had functioning oversight in Washington since 2010 because what was once a vital component of our system of checks and balances was politicized by Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) and became a mockery of oversight. And if there was an actual need for congressional oversight, the GOP's various investigative committees would undoubtedly miss it because their time is primarily spent on the pursuit of new talking points.
