Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) has intervened in the fight between Reps. John Dingell (D-Mich.) and Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.), hoping to resolve their battle over the chairmanship of the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee, one senior Democratic aide confirmed on Wednesday. But neither combatant has agreed to a deal and the dispute may still be resolved by a secret ballot next week.Wait, what is that? A SECRET BALLOT? I thought those weren't "fair" and were forms of "intimidation" in the workplace, according to the Democratic Party's agenda.
Of course they want a secret ballot! Who wouldn't? Everyone is afraid of alienating the wrong guy! And that's exactly why the secret ballot process should be preserved--in EVERYONE's workplace, not just in Washington.
