Well, chalk one up for gun owners. Waxman says he'll retire. Too bad Boxer, Swinestein & Pelosi didn't join him!

    Saw that last night.

    Only thing I got is,

    Don't let the door hit you in the nostrils on the way out Hank.

    CBS did this gushing piece about how tenacious he was and how much he "got done".

    I wondered if he could have got Eric Holder to release his documents about fast & furious.

    Probably not.
    That's all I got.

    I'd get excited, but then you realize that they'll put another just like him in his place.

    My sentiments exactly.
    The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me.

    No chance of replacing him with someone that's uglier....His kids must look like monkeys.

    Waxx-off has been there far too long, but there's about zero possibility of getting anyone noticeably better to replace him.

    At least you can get someone with less seniority.

    Good riddance to that melon-headed parasite.

    When I see a head-on shot of him on the TV, I'm reminded for some reason of a hognosed bat. That's odd, because a hognosed bat is smarter than Waxman. Looks like sometime during 40 years of graft and corruption he could have used some of that ill gotten gains to get a nose job. :rotflmao:

    Anybody seen anything official from him on his reasons for not running?
    Rumors of ethics issues? This is the time of year they'll need to drop out if they're going to. The party needs plenty of time to field a candidate and get the money steamroller going.

    Good riddance. I always thought he looked like a rat.
    Sometimes, I lie awake in bed at night wondering "Why the heck can't I fall asleep?"

    Waxman looks like a dead ringer for some of the creatures of Gringots Goblin Bank (Harry Potter reference)
