New York Times, Dateline: WASHINGTON — "A day after a dramatic, nationally televised hearing that pitted Roger Clemens against his former personal trainer and Democrats against Republicans, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform said Thursday that he regretted holding the hearing in the first place."
Waxman continues: "I didn’t think it was a hearing that needed to be held in order to get the facts out about the Mitchell report,” Waxman said. ...“I’m sorry we had the hearing. I regret that we had the hearing."
Only the "WaxAttax" could screw up in such a huge (expletive deleted) way. Contrast the Waxman-led hearings with the Davis-led hearings in 2005. The difference is like night and day. One can only characterize the Waxmeister's hearing as a giant three ring - media or otherwise - circus that did nothing but further insure that we will never get to the bottom of the doping business in Major League Baseball and that McNamee will make even more scratch off his book.
Meanwhile, here in the real world, the House Democrats, shilling for MoveOn and the Code Pinkies, let FISA lapse and vote a meaningless and stupid Contempt of Congress bill against Harriet Miers and Josh Bolton. Thanks guys. (Can't they ever let go ... that is like ancient history now. So what if George Bush "stole your election" - get over it, it was eight years ago! Good grief!)
Now that the terrorists can chat each other up, without the good guys being able to listen in, we are all a whole bunch safer. "Sleep well America, Nancy Pelosi is standing the watch tonight." I know I am feeling a bunch safer with this crowd in charge! "Hey Honey, where's the spare key to the gun safe?" Whoops, forgot, they want to take away the Second Amendment too. "Honey, forget I said that!"
Better we all move to Berkeley, smoke dope, drop acid, flip off the boys in uniform, and live off the government teat ... that way, when the bombs come, everybody will think it's just fireworks.
Here's a novel idea: How about rooting for the "real good Guys" - you know, the guys and gals that are working twenty-hours a day trying to keep innocent Americans from getting vaporized by islamo-facists that think they're going to get laid by forty virgins in heaven after killing us. Like that's really gonna happen. But then again what do you expect from the crowd whose only claim to fairness, equity, and rule of law is:
"Dude, don't bogart that joint."
