Oops! Pete Stark Out – Sander Levin In

Second Ways & Means boss ousted; Levin replaces liberal loose cannon

By Jay Heflin – 03/04/10

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has announced that Rep. Sander Levin will be the interim Ways and Means panel chairman.

Rep. Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.) said Pelosi made the announcement at a meeting of the caucus this morning.

Etheridge said Ways and Means members gave their unanimous backing to Levin, a Michigan Democat who has been chairman of the subcommittee on trade.

"Pelosi announced it in the caucus and the Ways and Means Committee just unanimously approved it," Etheridge said.

The startling announcement comes a day after Rep. Pete Stark (D-Calif.) appeared ready to take the reins of the committee from Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.). Stark was the next in line for the post in terms of seniority, but some panel members revolted at the idea of him leading the committee.

Levin effectively becomes the panel’s third chairman in a matter of 25 hours.

Stark said he wanted to remain as the chairman of the subcommittee on health.

"I worked my whole career on this, and I don’t want to do that [become chairman]," he told The Hill. "So Sandy moves up." …

Of course this begs the question, if Mr. Fortney ‘Pete’ Stark is too crazy and unethical to be the chairman of the House Ways And Means, why is he even on the committee in the first place?

    Clear evidence of panic in the dimdem ranks.

    This time they have booted a nutter BEFORE he could destroy his segment of the country.

    Unlike Drooling Barney, Sweet Charley Rangel, Chris Dudd, and Commissar Pelosi herself.

    It won’t be enough.

    Pelosi’s neck is in the guillotine as well. She has 8 more months to pretend to be Marie Antoinette.

    …..”if Mr. Stark is not qualified to be the chairman, why is he even on the committee?……”

    Stark is not qualified to be a human being. Why is he even on earth? He’s emitting poisonous Co2 into the atmosphere and breathing air that somebody useful could use.

    Steve – like the boy on the parade route, you just will persist on pointing out that the king is a nekkid uncircumcised runt, won’t you.

    Sander Levin is worthless to Michigan too. The one state that has Dems wreckin’ it from the governor to Levin’s brother Carl, Michigan’s stealth senator.

    I do hope that this appointment lasts only until the next election.

    The dems are either corrupt or dyin’ off.
