priorities, dear boy, priorities

Watch what they do, not what they say. While investigations into the VA may be the exception to the general rule putting scandal over substance -- because the problems are real and Congress can make worthwhile changes -- I offer two factoids that fit the usual pattern.

1. In their desperate effort to make the Benghazi tragedy a political problem worthy of Watergate, House Republicans have now held almost as many hearings on Benghazi [17] as Congress did on the 9/11 attacks [22]. And even more are scheduled by Chairman Issa even before the new select committee begins its witch hunt.

2. As National Journal reports -- the headline says it all --

The House Science Committee Has Held More Hearings on Aliens Than on Climate Change
