HARMAN vs. HASTINGS….ROUND 2….Matt Yglesias has some further thoughts on the battle between Jane Harman and Alcee Hastings to chair the House Intelligence Committee. Main argument: The New Republic favors Harman, and your best bet on foreign policy matters is always to do the opposite of TNR. This is disturbingly persuasive. Primary conclusion: Don’t appoint either one of them. Appoint the #3 Democrat Silvestre Reyes instead.
