Whatever your opinion might be over the use of performance enhancing drugs, and what ever you believe about Roger Clemens’ honesty, I find the current witch hunt very scary. Ask any lobbyist who snuggles up with your representative and they’ll tell you….”baseball been bely bely good to me.”


Roger Clemens faced a judge today

On trial for his word

The Congress thinks he lied to them

During the testimony that they heard


In a case of he said she said

And circumstantial evidence

The prosecution is convinced

They’ll knock the ball over the fence


But even if he’s lying

And the accusations turn out true

How many times do you suppose

Your Congress lied to you


Perhaps a little Quid Pro Quo

Is the order of the day

The thirty years they propose for him

Ought to go the other way


435 inmates wearing stripes

For lying to the masses

The perfect steroidal ointment

To cure our festering congressional asses

The evidence is secure in printed out hard copy emails of the dastardly plan and stored safely in a safety deposit box at the bank. It is a federal offense with logged IPs...the prosecution rests...

Just when the $8b goes missing in Iraq, we get the steroid scandal! Just another mis-direction ploy and waste of time. Why doesn't Congress do something important for a change. Political theatre, all of it. Throw the bastards out!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good job.

Congress needs a good swift kick in the ass! We really need to clean house. All of them need to go!

Yeah, and I think many of those inmates have overstayed their time and should be released starting this very next November.
Enjoying the cooler weather, I bet'ch'ya.

How many times do you suppose
Your Congress lied to you?

As one who had to endure sitting in many Congressional hearings, I couldn't even count that high. They should change the name of D.C. to D.D., District of Deceit.
