"A House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine its national champion, over the objections of some lawmakers who said Congress has meatier targets to tackle."

Is this news cause for disgust over the depths of Congressional meddling, or celebration that whatever time is spent on this won't be spent on screwing something important up?

Politicians....are they serious? Harry Reid edition.

Here are the wildest two sentences I've read today:

"Today we vote whether to even discuss one of the greatest issues of our generation – indeed, one of the greatest issues this body has ever faced: whether this nation will finally guarantee its people the right to live free from the fear of illness and death, which can be prevented by decent health care for all.  In the coming weeks, we will finally put people, not insurance companies, in charge of their lives."

Put aside the non sequitur for a second.  You read that correctly.  Harry Reid believes that he has the power to grant you freedom from the fear of illness and death.  Amazing.  If that's not enough for you, he deigns to put you back in charge of your own life!  If only that were true.

The arrogance is staggering.  Read the whole thing here.
