Congress on Steroids

I'm watching the baseball steroids fracas on CNN, and it's giving me the same entertained-but-stalkerish feeling that reading about Britney Spears on Perez Hilton does. It just seems like an inappropriate level of coverage for the subject matter. Why is Congress (and CNN) spending time on this?

Well, I guess the very fact that I find it compelling TV answers both questions. Everybody plays for ratings.

Congress needs to start spending time relearning how to be an independent branch of the federal government, not grilling baseball players and their trainers about performance-enhancing drugs. I don't care how much money is involved in television or professional sports. Congress should have better things to do.

This is the first time I've heard about Congress doing a damn thing since the Patriot Act. At least I know they are working now.
