On MSNBC the dems were whining that Boehner appointed 29 old white guys to be committee chairmen. I don't know how that works, if its based strictly on seniority, or party loyalty, but either way, shouldn't the most qualified person get the job? Lets take a poll. Years ago the fire commander tests were under fire since no minorities could qualify. The tests were fair, but the scores were the scores. What is more important "diversity" or "competency"?
