Say what you will about the 12 years of Republican rule in the U.S House, but the G.O.P. got at least one thing right: term limits for committee chairmen.
The same can't be said of Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats, who, after surprisingly keeping the limits on the books last Congress, are now set to do away with them. Apparently, a robust majority that should be safe for at least a few cycles has satisfied Democrats that the coast is clear to go back to their old tricks.
Pelosi Strikes a Blow for Mediocrity
So much for "change".
