wow--the new woman house secretary (oops, I mean chairperson) has quite a resume

(high school education, ethics violations, mouthpiece for the iraq war--oh, yeah, real prize here!)
Candice S. Miller
3]

Candice S. Miller (born May 7, 1954) is the U.S. Representative for Michigan's 10th congressional district, serving since 2003. She is a member of the Republican Party.

The district includes Michigan's Huron, Macomb, and Sanilac counties, plus portions of Lapeer and Oakland counties. She is one of only a few members in Congress whose highest level of education is a high school diploma.


U.S. House of Representatives
Committee assignments

Committee on Homeland Security
Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security (Chairwoman)
Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure
Subcommittee on Highways and Transit
Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines, and Hazardous Materials
Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment

Caucus memberships

Congressional Boating Caucus (Co-Chair)
Congressional Waterways Caucus
International Conservation Caucus
Jobs Now Caucus (Co-Chair)
Sportsmen's Caucus

For the 110th Congress Miller was appointed to continue her service on the House Armed Services Committee and was added to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which has jurisdiction over not only surface transportation but also water quality issues related to the Great Lakes. Miller was appointed to the House Committee on Homeland Security in March 2008 and has since left the House Armed Services Committee.
During the 108th Congress, the House Ethics Committee sent her letters of admonishment for having improperly attempted to influence the vote of fellow Michigan congressman Nick Smith on the House floor. She later told the Detroit Free Press, "If a black belt can be intimidated by an overweight middle-age woman, that's too bad."

During the 2003 Iraq War, Mrs. Miller was a member of the Armed Services committee, and part of a "war room" team that relayed information from the Bush administration to Republican members, the news media, and the public.

4. well, we had donetta davidson--the repuke hack who purged nearly 1/5 of the voters in CO

(nearly all people of color--she made katherine harris look like she wasn't even trying with her measly 91,000)

As Secretary of State she gained both praise and criticism for cleaning up Colorado's voter roles, a controversial move that resulted in nearly one in five names (19.4 percent) being deleted from the voting rolls.

10. The fact that Obama

won Colorado anyway makes the win that much greater.

2. What committee will she head and whose place will she take

I can't imagine one of those egotistical bastards stepping aside quietly to make way for a woman.

5. There's a boating caucus?

And a Sportsmen's Caucus (shouldn't they rename it "Sportspersons' Caucus" if women are on it?)?

You learn something new every day.

6. well, bonehead named her chairMAN of the committee--apparently all the work we did in the 70's

on gender neutral language was for naught.
