It would be hard to find two congressmen more politically opposite than Brad Sherman and Jeb Hensarling.
Sherman is solid Democrat from the San Fernando Valley in southern California. Hensarling is a red-meat Texas conservative protege of former senator Phil Gramm.
Sherman and Hensarling may not agree about anything else.
But the two men have been outspoken in one shared view: that the bailout known as the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP has lacked accountability or transparency from day one.
