And so it begins…

It was quiet today, driving up 395 through sparse traffic getting to work. I almost always enjoy August simply because all the fatuous gasbag politicians take the month off. But then came Rafael Palmeiro’s positive drug test. Now they’re all clamoring back to town so they can haul him off in irons for lying to Congress. Leading the witch hunt hearings of the Government Reform Committee will be Tom Davis, a local-boy-turned-fatuous-gasbag, who is just all up in arms over steroids.

Of course, were Congress to devote their time to actually useful pursuits, we might only need them half of the year.

Was it wise for Palmeiro to lie to Congress? Not so much.

Could Congress be spending its time in a better fashion? Yes, probably. I recommend putting DC statehood on the list of things they ought to take a serious look at, instead of wasting our time with baseball nonsense.
