Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid.

Of this man: U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, one of only three federal judges in the 20th century (and one of only six since the founding of the Republic) to be impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate.

Why be afraid? Because Speaker-Designate Nancy Pelosi has made clear her intent to skip over the U.S. Rep. Jane Harman, the Ranking Minority Member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, and instead install Rep. Hastings as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

As our friends at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy point out, Alcee Hastings' background leaves, shall we say, a bit to be desired, at least when it comes to feeling safe and secure with him as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

So ... be afraid. Be very afraid.
