No Steps Forward, 19 Steps Back

So...remember how the GOP was self-flagellating right after the election, and how they claimed to have learned their lesson and how they were going to be oh-so-more diverse? Well, they've announced their new House Committee Chairmen. Emphasis on MEN. Specifically ALL white, Anglo, straight men...

Fun Fact - The Foreign Relations Committee has been chaired for the last two years by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen - a Cuban-American woman (incidentally the mother of a transgender child and LGBT issue friendly). She has to step aside because of tenure limits on committees (waived for Paul Ryan...just because). So, you'd think they'd replace her with a woman, right?

Yeah - no.
