People are still wondering why on Earth Congress ever felt the need to stick its nose into the issue of baseball players using performance enhancing drugs.Â So far beyond the bounds of its powers was the entire excursion that only the most ardent of liberals supported the foray.
Roger Clemens, ensnared in the circus designed to distract away from the fact that Congress was not tending to its already defined duties, was perhaps the most high profile player targetted.Â Not only targetted, but pursued as though he were Hitler himself at times.
Well, after a lot of time and money wasted, the government has lost its case against the former pitcher on charges that he lied to Congress about something Congress should not have been concerned with in the first place.
Ok, can we now get back to the people’s business?Â Or are we going to find yet another distraction?
Oh, don’t fool yourself.Â There will be another distraction.Â America burning is not just that high on Washington’s list of priorities.
