Watch Out Bush, The Man from Hollywood is Coming For You

Whats up, I’m still out of town, hanging out in Northern California, which is famous for 2 things, one is wine. I went to a couple of great wineries yesterday. Lots of fun. The other thing they are famous for up here also grows in the ground. (heh heh)

Here is a story about my congressman. I have voted for this guy in every election. He is coming after Bush, like he has been, but now HE is in charge. It’s Hollywoods own Henry Waxman.

Waxman has Bush administration in sights

Henry Waxman
LOS ANGELES – The lawmaker poised to cause the Bush administration’s biggest headaches when Democrats take control of Congress may just be a grocer’s son from Watts who’s hardly a household name off Capitol Hill.

Rep. Henry Waxman (news, bio, voting record) has spent the last six years waging a guerrilla campaign against the White House and its corporate allies, launching searing investigations into everything from military contracts to Medicare prices from his perch on the Government Reform Committee.

In January, Waxman becomes committee chairman — and thus the lead congressional hound of an administration many Democrats feel has blundered badly as it expanded the power of the executive branch.

Waxman’s biggest challenge as he mulls what to probe?

“The most difficult thing will be to pick and choose,” he said.

The choices he makes could help define Bush’s legacy.

“There is just no question that life is going to be different for the administration,” said Rep. Tom Davis, R-Va., the current committee chairman. “Henry is going to be tough. … And he’s been waiting a long time to be able to do this.”

Waxman, 67, is in his 16th term representing a Los Angeles district that has migrated west over the years to take in some of the country’s most exclusive real estate: Bel Air, Malibu, Beverly Hills.
