Keep that quiet, nobody is supposed to know that special interests like defense contractors, pharma businesses and microsoft could possibly be funding democrats, our politicians motives are pure, its only the other guys that are out to screw us.

Move along, nothing to see here.

4. It's a Select/Special Committee- not a "super congress". It's embarrassing for DU'ers

5. If accuracy is the concern...
Can I simply call it the 'Its a TRAP!' committee, or maybe the 'we put in triggers so we can do horrid things and take no blame ourselves' committee?
