    Re: Clemens to Be Indicted for Perjury in Doping Testimony

    Doping is a complicated issue. Kids look up to these guys. Athlete gets caught doping up, and the kid thinks "It must be cool". These athletes are a disgrace. However, this should not be a function of government. Let MLB, the NFL, the NHL, etc, etc, settle this. As for the kids, how about some better parenting?

    The fact that CONGRESS spent their time grandstanding to a bunch of baseball players about ethical behavior is funny, if it weren't so hypocriticaly sad. Can you imagine Durbin or Boehner testifying before Congress? Clemens is a ridiculous fool, but our government shouldn't be bothering with things so trivial to their intended purpose (I realize you want them involved in EVERYTHING, but I don't).

    Never do politicians get truly put to the fire in this manner, yet they get up there and lecture about ethics and morality as if they were pure as the driven snow. I used Blago as an example of the special treatment that a common citizen wouldn't have gotten, albeit in a different type of courtroom. You and I wouldn't have a convenient "mistrial" on 20+ counts.

    Clemens is just PRAYING for a disputed BCS championship this year to distract Congress.

    Blago was not in congress, is facing 5 years in prison just for his one conviction so far, and more will be coming, and is probably pretty much ruined financially from court costs. You and I probably would not be able to afford the type of lawyers Blago had, but any wealthy person would. Further, it was a jury trial, so it's unlikely that it anything nefarious happened as far as the trial

    Part of me WANTS MLB held to the fire over doping, and Clemens, while I LIKED him as a pitcher... Lying under oath man.. dumb.

    I'm tempered by the fact that this ended up as a Gov't matter of this sort. The House and Senate have more important matters to deal with.
    Let's see, who was it again that made steroids a major part of his state of the Union address...????

    I don't understand why Congress involves itself in MLB in the first place. It's none of their business. There are real issues to deal with.

    The word "doping" is misleading as MLB bans many legal supplements. Players should be allowed to take whatever they want IMHO but that's on the league.

    WOW, you are like... in love with W. aren't you?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Most people would stop obsessing over what he did or did not say once he left office. YMMV.
