The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has asked the DoJ to investigate pitcher Roger Clemens to determine if he committed perjury during his Feb. 13th testimony regarding the use of performance enhancing steroids...
...and the question we should be asking ourselves is: Has Congress taken leave of its senses! Is this their idea of 'conducting the people's business'? Roger Clemens has ensured that he'll end up as a minor footnote in sports history. His career is over. His reputation is shot. His awards are tainted, and his body is probably broken. So now Representative Henry Waxman wants to waste more millions of dollars on a perjury investigation? Who the hell cares if Clemens lied or not?!
Listen up Waxman... In the near future DHS plans to "harmonize" domestic and international travel rules under the 'Secure Flight' proposal so that, like Imperial Russia, we'll all need permission from our lor--I mean the Feds--before we travel to Disneyworld.
In a few weeks 4000 US serviceman will have died fighting Bush's War, not to mention the 10's of thousands of veterans maimed by our enemies as well as by an administration that forgot about them upon their return from the battlefield.
Perhaps the honorable Mr. Waxman might want to take a look at his committee's stationary. I appears that he has forgotten either his committee's name, or its charter, or both.
