Yesterday former Sen. Arlen Specter (R & D-Penn.) wrote about “the legislation I am proposing.” He’s not worried about world peace, the economic mess, wild over-spending, or such. Instead, he declares, “it will be bad for America if there is no N.F.L. football in the fall.”
Yes, it would be bad. Tens of millions of American males wandering aimlessly on weekends. Husbands forced to have conversations with their wives. Unemployed copy writers for beer ads that no longer can be shown. And much, much more. That would be bad. Maybe even very bad.
Of course, we know if something bad is going on in America, it is Congress’ job to act. Wrote Specter: “Congress can - and should - intervene to force a resolution of the dispute.”
Well, of course.
Capitol Hill has made a hash of most everything it has touched in recent years, but no matter. Surely legislators can resolve the football deadlock.
Actually, making another disaster would be in Mr. Specter’s interest. His bio note informs us that he is a lawyer. And what could be better for a lawyer than another complicated law affecting big-spending special interests!
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
