When they put a loose cannon in charge of a national lab

post,

[...] it was our intent to raise this travesty to the congressional level. People who hold the purse strings should realize that when they put a loose cannon in charge of a national lab that bad things tend to happen. It is congress that needs to remove their heads from the sand. Indeed, there is no culture of noncompliance here. Just because some megalomaniac makes the claim doesn't make it true. The problem is one that the great author Tom Clancy proclaimed in an interview on C-SPAN. He said, 'In my experience the average congressman has an IQ lower than the average truck driver, not intending any offense to truck drivers.'Congresswoman DeGette seems to confirm that theory. As previously stated, these people work for us and they are doing a poor job of oversight if they allow the likes of Nanos to have free reign.

What do you call 100 lawyers (Congresspersons) at the bottom of the sea?

A good start.
