Mike America Great Again*

Four out of Five Men Agree that there is no War on Women

Guys, as we know, Republicans are pretty much in the sexism business and generally leave The Skirts outta the club, amirite? Yes I am.

Anyway today’s proof is brought to us from Business Insider who noticed something:

The House of Representatives is set to have more members of Congress named “Mike” than women serving as committee chairs under the new Republican majority…

The six committee chairs headed up by Bros named Mike or Michael:

  • Mike Rogers of Alabama, chairing the Armed Services Committee
  • Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin, chairing the new Select Committee on China
  • Mike Bost of Illinois, chairing the Veterans’ Affairs Committee
  • Mike Turner, chairing the Intelligence Committee
  • Michael McCaul of Texas, chairing the Foreign Affairs Committee
  • Michael Guest of Mississippi, chairing the Ethics Committee

The three incoming committee chairs who are headed-up by The Skirts:

  • Kay Granger of Texas, chairing the Appropriations Committee
  • Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, chairing the Education and Workforce Committee
  • Cathy McMorris Rodgers, chairing the Energy and Commerce Committee

And because we like to be complete, our pals over at Electoral-Vote have a nifty chart of all the committees, Chairpeople and Ranking Members if known.

Committee Chair (R) Ranking member (D) Notes
Agriculture Glenn Thompson (PA) David Scott (GA) A new 5-year farm bill is needed this year.
Appropriations Kay Granger (RX) Rosa DeLauro (CT) Granger will not tolerate any cuts to military spending.
Armed Services Mike Rogers (AL) Adam Smith (WA) Rogers wants to increase the Pentagon’s budget.
Budget Jodey Arrington (TX) Brendan Boyle (PA) Arrington will have a tough job getting a budget through.
Education Virginia Foxx (VA) Robert Scott (VA) Foxx had this job from 2017 to 2019.
Energy & Commerce Cathy Rodgers (WA) Frank Pallone (NJ) Rodgers will focus on gas prices, fentanyl, and COVID-19.
Ethics Michael Guest (R-MS) Susan Wild (PA) George Santos is on the to-do list here.
Financial Services Patrick McHenry (NC) Maxine Waters (CA) Oversight of the regulators is on the menu, also cryptocurrencies.
Foreign Affairs Michael McCaul (TX) Gregory Meeks (NY) The withdrawal from Afghanistan will be front and center.
Homeland Security Mark Green (TN) Bennie Thompson (MS) Green is a member of the Freedom Caucus. It will be wild.
House Administration ? Joseph Morelle (NY) The Committee has overisght over the Capitol police and Library of Congress.
Intelligence Michael Turner (OH) Not Adam Schiff (CA) Turner is a staunch China hawk.
Judiciary Jim Jordan (OH) Jerrold Nadler (NY) Jordan is a real firebrand. Nadler is a tough NYC brawler. Expect fireworks.
Natural Resources Bruce Westerman (AR) Raul Grijvala (AZ) Westerman wants oil and gas drilling on public land.
Oversight & Accountability James Comer (K) ? Hunter Biden’s laptop lives here.
Rules Tom Cole (OK) Jim McGovern (MA) Will Cole be able to manage this unruly committee?.
Science, Space & Tech Frank Lucas (OK) Zoe Lofgren (CA) The panel oversees NASA, NSF, NOAA. Probably no big fights.
Small Business Roger Williams (TX) Nydia Velazquez (NY) Williams wants to look at fraud (perhaps the $1 million he got during COVID-19?).
Transportation & Infrastructure Sam Graves (MO) Rick Larsen (WA) Graves will investigate the 2022 infrastructure law.
Veterans’ Affairs Mike Bost (IL) Mark Takano (CA) Bost initially opposed benefits for vets exposed to burn pits.
Ways and Means Jason Smith (MO) Richard Neal (MA) Smith wants to extend those parts of the 2017 Tax Cut Act that are expiring.

We are not sure who is going to be on Gym Jordan’s Tin Foil Hat Committee, yet, but it is not a standing committee.

*See what I did there?

    Well, Michael was the most popular boy’s baby name (by decade) of the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s and the second most popular in the 1950s and 2000s. Lotta Mikes out there.

    Well, the skirts in the GQP caucus knew what they were getting into. I have very little sympathy for them. Additionally, there are absolutely no women in the GQP who rival Nancy Smash deft handling of the Dems agenda…

    I think it will be interesting to watch the fireworks between Jordan and Nadler.
    Gym Jordan may think he’s macho man, but wait until he butts heads with Jerry Nadler.

  6. “Westerman wants oil and gas drilling on public land.”

    Whether or not the oil and gas companies want to drill. Biden increased the number of leases available, but it’s far too profitable to NOT produce and just raise prices.

    Also Raul Grijalva is not to be sneezed at as a tough congressman…

    Could be me, but that looks like Charles Krauthammer, who died years ago.
