Priorities out of whack

Let's see what the main issue facing Congress is today. You might,naively, think it's health care, immigration, terrorism, the economy, or the war in Iraq. You would be wrong. The main priority of Congress is prosecuting Roger Clemens for steroid use and possible lying about it. Congress has suggested the Justice Department investigate Clemens' possible deception. Have we lost our minds, ladies and gentlemen? Is this worth one cent of the taxpayer's money? (That's not a rhetorical question; the answer is no). When Al-Qaeda surrenders, the borders are secure, the war in Iraq is over,and everyone can get health care then we can focus on the moral failings of Mr.Clemens.

This insane lack of priorities would be funny if it wasn't so dangerous. How many real criminals will not be investigated by the Justice Department because it is focusing on Roger Clemens' possible steroid use? The government's resources are limited. Go after the real criminals: terrorists, felons, et al. Give me a break from this steroid obsession.
