Corrine Brown is not fit to serve

If Democrats want to hand Republicans the 2016 elections, there's no better way to do that than making the ridiculous US House Rep Corrine Brown the Chair of the House Veterans Affairs Committee.

Brown is not just a joke, she is an embarrassment for the party.

That doesn't start -- or end -- with her ugly wigs -- which are dirty and smell when you're close to her.  That smell's not a surprise, they usually look like rats nests.  They're often turned the wrong way as well.

A little while ago, an outlet rightly made fun of her ridiculous wigs and there was this effort to stop the criticism by whining "sexism."

Sexism is real and it exists.

You're wearing 30 different wigs in public in 9 months and wearing trashy wigs at that will result in people talking.  And it has nothing to do with your gender.

People of made fun of Donald Trump's equally ridiculous wigs for years.  Donald Trump, newsflash, is not a woman.

If she just wore one bad wig throughout, people would probably feel sorry for her.  But she's basically ordered the entire Eva Gabor catalog and with all that wig purchasing, she should have been able to get one decent wig.

More to the point, how about one age appropriate wig?

Corrine's not going on tour with Rufus.

Everyone laughs at her wigs.

No one laughs at her speaking.

A member of Congress should conduct themselves as a professional.  Corrine's been in Congress for two decades.

That's more than enough time to learn the English language.

Corrine is a special kind of stupid -- the kind where you could get by if you stuck to very simple words but Corrine wants to show off what she thinks she knows so she uses "words" that aren't words.  The more syllables in a word, the greater chance Corrine's going to re-invent the word.

And when she's on a tear -- against Bully Boy Bush or whoring for Barack -- she starts speaking so fast and constants go from slurred to completely absent with her voice rising to a level that only certain dogs can hear but you know she's finally done speaking because she's got that moronic grin on her face like she made a contribution and an important point.

Veterans that stupid grin.

They see it a lot in the last years as she repeatedly blames veterans in public hearings.

That's why veterans hate her.

I'm writing this piece because veterans can't stand her.  I'll be at a veterans hearing later and I was comparing notes last night with veterans from three different VSOs and the issue of Brown was brought up.

I couldn't believe it because it seems like just yesterday we were all fighting to get Mike Michaud appointed as the Democratic leader on the House Veterans Affairs Committee -- Mike over Corrine.

And now we've got to do it again?

(Mike's retiring.  Veterans support Tim Walz -- himself a veteran -- for the post.)

Corrine is infamous for flaunting her stupidity for the greater whoring.

So when veterans weren't getting their checks for college in the fall of 2009, to whore for the VA -- and Barack, let's not forget that's the only reason she whored -- Corrine blamed not the VA, she blamed veterans and then she tried to blame universities.

It was the VA.

And this would come out in a House hearing and Brown wouldn't bat an eye.

But grasp that when the government was screwing over the veterans (then-VA Secretary Eric Shinseki was told in February 2009 that his problem was going to happen and he refused to inform Congress or the American people, that's screwing over veterans -- when you know months ahead of time that this is going to happen and you say nothing and you do nothing, that's screwing over veterans), Corrine wanted to 'share' that the problem wasn't the VA, it was veterans.

I don't know if she's out clubbing or what, but she gets her 'information' at two and three in the morning while flipping through cable channels -- she brags about this repeatedly in Congressional hearings which doesn't make her look smart at all.  As a member of Congress she should have better intelligence available to her but she drops basic cable the way some other members work in shout outs to the Washington Post or the New York Times.

She's an uninformed idiot and a member of Congress who needs to take speech classes but thinks so little of her position that she's okay with being a public joke.

If her district's okay with it, that's their business.  Up until she tries to become the Democratic leader of the House Veterans Affairs Committee, that's her business.

But this member of Congress has spent the last six years, as the VA has been rocked by one scandal after another, covering the administration and blaming veterans.

We've called her out here for that repeatedly and sometimes an e-mail comes in from someone saying, "I read what she said, you are wrong."

No, you did not read what she said.

You read her prepared written remarks.

Corinne has difficulty reading them and often veers away from them.

In addition, because we have called her out repeatedly, in the last three years she's had these pro-veteran written statements that go completely against what she says in her so-called questioning.

They aren't questions.

They're attacks on veterans and lengthy defenses of the VA and the White House.

Veterans know this and that's why they oppose her.

Until she started attacking veterans, I didn't spend any time mocking her wigs or noting her inability to speak accurately (forget properly -- she uses words she doesn't know the meaning of and uses them wrongly).  But when she began attacking veterans in public hearings, we called her out.

Even so, I still try to avoid her as much as possible and just ignore her when I'm reporting on hearings here.

If the Dems are stupid enough to make her their leader on the House Veterans Affairs Committee, I will be doing two reports on every HVAC hearing I attend -- the basic report and then the one chronicling the embarrassment that is Corrine.

And while the right may or may not join in, I will be the one doing the takedown because I've been at the hearings since 2006, all but the field hearings.  And I have notes and I will easily point to how, for example, an issue mattered to her in 2006 (when a Republican occupied the White House) but with a Democrat in the White House, the issue doesn't just fail to matter to her, she now attacks veterans for it.

Corrine Brown has betrayed veterans repeatedly over the last six years which is why she does not have support from the veterans community.

In addition, she's an embarrassment to Congress with her inability to dress in a professional manner or to speak the English language.  The party puts her in that chair and they become the laughing stock.

And she shoots off her idiotic mouth against veterans in the middle of a hearing as Ranking Member?  You better believe the news media will have to cover it and the train wreck that's been largely hidden for two decades becomes very public with Americans wondering why the Democratic Party hates veterans?

That's already a possible them for the GOP to run with thanks to the nonsense Nancy Pelosi just pulled on Tammy Duckworth.

Tim Walz is the choice of veterans, not Corrine Brown.

Brown has done nothing to earn a leadership role and she's done nothing for veterans in the last six years.  Or actually ever.  She's never led on a veterans issue her entire time in Congress.

To now put her in leadership of the Veterans Affairs Committee would be a slap in the face to veterans.

Again, I wasn't aware this was an issue until last night.  A number of us lobbied last time around and knowing what her peers think of her, I thought it would never come up again.  But she wants the spot and if the Democratic party's stupid enough to give it to her, everyone's going to suffer.
