    Freshly-deposited diarrhea splatter is the first thing that springs to mind whenever I hear mention of his name. What a runny turd of a person.

    With all of the pressing matters before us, this guy has decided to wage war against Sid the Science Kid . . . .

      I don’t like Chaffetz and his meddling, but I don’t have a problem with this given government procurement law. That is a lot of taxpayer money at play. There may be a valid sole source justification, but I don’t recall seeing it in that article.

    I love this blog, but just wondering why it’s getting so political lately? :( Not all of the readers share the same political views, I would imagine… Just wondering.

    • Ally

      Not exactly political. Involves whether DC will get the right to pass and keep its own local laws or not. Most DC residents on both sides of the fence are for that.

      • No I agree I’ve gotten a bit more political than in the past. I feel that the times require it. https://www.popville.com/2016/11/going-on-record/

          +1.

            +1000 Heaven forbid someone in DC gets political–there are pearls to be clutched..

          I didn’t catch this post before, but I would like to thank you for writing it, and for continuing with your political posts. I for one, greatly appreciate it.

        • And for that, I’m gonna click on some sponsored content!

      The blatant hypocrisy he’s been showing recently warrants being called out. If Trump were democrat he’d be all over Flynn in a heartbeat.

      The election of Trump and all of the tumult of his first month-ish in office — plus recent congressional moves now that Congress doesn’t have to worry about the presidential veto — has spurred many people to become more politically active. People have become more vocal and more interested in taking action.

    Wait–he loves Five Guys?! That works in his favor.

    • PFlyer

      Yeah, but how can you NOT love Sid the Science Kid?????

  • Please sign my little petition for a symbolic boycott of all things Utah headed for the DC Counsel and Ms Bowser.

    brilliant!

  • Is Chaffetz now devoting all his energy to the six states (Oregon, Washington, Vermont, California, Montana and Colorado) that allow (mercifully) physician assisted termination of life when medical efforts offer no hope?

    • Brightwoodian

      I very much support death with dignity and do not support most things Chaffetz. However, the Oversight committee DOES have jurisdiction over DC, not Oregon, Washington, Vermont, California, Montana and Colorado. I hope you’re all supporting Chaffetz’s proposal that DC revert to Maryland. It’s the only way to get people like Chaffetz out of our business.

        “I hope you’re all supporting Chaffetz’s proposal that DC revert to Maryland. It’s the only way to get people like Chaffetz out of our business.”
        .
        I’ve read that retrocession might actually be the most viable option for D.C. to get representation, but I disagree with the blanket statement that it’s the “only” way to end interference from congressional Republicans.
        .
        Even if we just had the status quo from several years ago, when we had no representation and we did have congressional meddling but the meddling quotient was lower, that would be preferable to the current situation.
        .
        And even if the people of D.C. were gung-ho about the retrocession idea, I don’t think the Baltimore political establishment would want it to happen. (I say Baltimore and not Annapolis because my understanding has been that Baltimore wields tremendous political power in MD.)

    For those that know me, this will reveal my IRL identity, but one of my favorite things to talk about when I make my calls to Chaffetz’s office (besides potholes and pedestrian crossing signals out of alignment) is that DC and Hawaii are the only two states where owning a falcon, hawk, eagle, etc. is illegal. Well, obviously DC is not a state, but I’m sure the Congressman knows that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falconry#In_the_United_States

    If I wanted to live in Maryland, I’d live in Maryland.

    I’m sure we all don’t like his b meddling, but printing out posters here doesn’t do much good. Anyone have an idea to fund someone doing it in Utah?
