Congressional hearings aren't about finding where things went wrong and looking for ways to avoid those mistakes in the future. They are about the politicians trying to impress the voters, and more importantly, the campaign doners, while at the same time destroying the person at the table, just to make themselves feel better about being politicians.

Boy....you deserve a MILLION recs for that one, Ray!

SO much time wasted by those televised hearings....and it's been happening at least since Joe McCarthy was around.

I wish that somebody would stand up in the middle of one of the hearings and SCREAM. Of course they'd be escorted out promptly.

After all....the show must go on.
