No Honest Man Rests Easy When the Legislature is in Session

Congressman Tom Davis (R-VA) has issued a 109-page report attacking the credibility of Brian McNamee.

Another wonderful example of your tax dollars at work. This guy must have plenty of time on his hands, and while this isn't a political blog, my guess is that he gets elected because he has a safe district and is good at bringing home the pork.

Which is interesting, because in this case he's acting quite pigheaded, and his report begs the overarching question that the public asked at the time the Clemens hearing was held: why is Congress taking a look at the Clemens affair in the first place, and why has this become a partisan issue? Given how nasty politics can be, you can imagine the attack ads in the fall: "And Tom Davis supports people who use illegal drugs in our national pastime."

The whole thing shows a system run amok. A 109-page report?

Some people definitely have too much time on their hands.

And who polices them?
