Enough is enough. Tell the House leadership to keep ignoramuses off the Science Committee

We could have a science literacy test to admit members onto that committee. No bubbles in a bar of soap silliness, just stuff like:

Name the three parts of an atom.
Tell at least one of the Newton’s three laws. Extra points if you can do all three.
What are the three major types of rock. GEOLOGY rock.
Name all eight planets. Extra points if you can do them in order.
Why can’t we build a base on the surface of Jupiter?

Stuff like that.

If they can’t answer, they can go on the committee to choose birthday cakes or new lamps or something.
