Senate Reviewing College Football

Oh the life of a Senator. Here we are in the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression and in between the spending of massive of amounts of our tax dollars they have found time to take up the issue of the college football and how they structure their championship. Forget the fact that our banking system is wasting away because nobody wants to put together a cohesive, sensible plan to fix it....let's focus on football.

Lest you think this is a party thing (Yes, that is John Kerry), it is not, it is bi-partisan. Both parties are wasting their time equally while the country works its ass off. I love football as much as the next guy, I'm a huge Oregon Ducks fan...but this is not what we elect our representatives to do......especially in a time like this.

Next time you hear Congress demagoging an issue (like Fannie, Freddie or AGEE (AIG)) just remember how they've spent their time.
