I, for one, am glad that Nancy Smash named some Dems to sit on the Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi select committee. As intellectually satisfying as a boycott might have been, it would have ceded the field to Trey Gowdy and the Alex Jones fans out there.
There has been some disappointment that Alan Grayson wasn’t named to the committee but Elijah Cumming is a proven badass who has been making Darrell Issa look like a fool for years.
