PH2009070202312“Henry Waxman is to Congress what Ted Williams was to baseball — a natural. As you read this nicely proportioned, fast- paced book, you realize that Waxman was born to be a member of the House, ideally the chairman of an important committee. He’s just five-feet-five, he’s woefully short of hair, he’s neither charming nor funny, but none of that has mattered. Waxman has been one of the most effective members of Congress for 35 years. ”

Washington Post review of Rep. Henry Waxman’s (CA-D) new book, The Waxman Report.

Good to know. Where do the tall, uncharming people go? The Senate? The NBA?
