Your tax dollars at work

The Republican members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have issued a 109-page report on baseball and PEDs.

“Weighing the Committee Record: A Balanced Review of the Evidence Regarding Performance Enhancing Drugs in Baseball” was meant to counter an 18-page memo that the Democrats sent to the Justice Department asking that Roger Clemens be investigated.

In stunning news, Rusty Hardin said he was happy to hear about the report.

So let me get this straight. We’re at war in the Middle East, the economy may be going in the tank, an enormous ice shelf in Antarctica is collapsing because of global warming and al-Qaida is issuing directives urging attacks on America.

Well by all means, let’s have our elected officials and their staff members look into whether a retired ballplayer took steroids eight years ago. Then let’s have partisan bickering about it. Then let’s write a 109-page report about it. These nitwits can’t be serious, can they?

Eliot Spitzer isn’t busy. Let’s assign him to the case.

I know I’ve gone off on this before. But I’m trying to pay attention to politics to decide who I want to vote for in November and stuff like this drives me crazy. I’d vote for whoever disbands this committee.
