Arlen Specter Must Go

Ok, let me see if I have this all right:

-Our economy is in the toilet.
-We're fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
-Gas is $4.00 a gallon and oil is $120 a barrel and oil companies are reporting record breaking, staggering, unbefuckinglievable profits.
-We're threatening war with Iran.
-There's also North Korea, with whom we take up issue when the middle east gets dull.
-We're spending $19 billion or so a year to fight a drug war (that's just for the office of the drug czar, it doesn't count the billions that go into other agencies) and a couple of recent studies have shown that drug use is actually up.
-Let's see, there's a major drought in the southeast.
-Myanmar has fallen into the sea and a military junta won't let us help
-China, despite a devastating earthquake, is getting stronger and stronger and will no doubt invade us when they feel they've stolen enough of our technology.

Those are just the major headlines.

And yet....
Former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh will meet separately with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Sen. Arlen Specter on Tuesday to discuss New England's videotaping of opposing coaches' playcalling signals in violation of league rules.

Walsh is scheduled to meet with Goodell at the NFL offices in New York at 7:30 a.m. Afterward, he will travel to Washington to meet with Specter. Specter, the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has been critical of the NFL's handling of the investigation.

Goodell and Specter each plan to hold a news conference after meeting with Walsh.

Here is a US Senator, there are only 100 or so of these guys, and he's taking up time and resources over a possible f*cking football game rules violation almost 8 years ago.

Are you kidding me Senator?
