This is an improvement over man-dog sex?

I thought that, perhaps, when Rick Santorum was shown the door by Pennsylvania voters, the body politic was well rid of his dirty mind, always thinking about people mounting their dogs and the like. Alas, Arlen Specter is taking up the standard of asinine statements, but hasn’t the decency to bring the crazy with it.

The good Senator wants to know why the NFL destroyed the tapes that the Patriots used in the first game of the season against the Jets, and is muttering about reviewing the NFL’s anti-trust exemption.

Let me give you a little hint, for free, Senator: give it a rest already. Nobody cares except for the asterisk crowd, and they don’t need you in order to feel superior.

The economy is falling apart, people are losing their homes because they can’t afford the debt payments on their gall bladder surgery / 60″ plasma (delete according to political preference), the nation’s infrastructure is falling apart, we’re in two wars, Britney Spears has only just now been committed for mental health treatment, and this is what you’re worried about?

Perhaps the good senator is pissed about the Eagles and Steelers not being in the big game this year. He must be a big fan of the NFL, right?

In the meantime, Specter said he might miss Sunday’s big game.

“I may play squash while it’s on,” Specter said.

There speaks a man of the people, earning his $163,000 per annum.

  3. Is there a single person in the country who plays squash who isn’t a complete and total douche?

    That final comment was so over the top that I’m amazed it was even made- it’s the kind of thing you would expect to see in the Onion or by snarky bloggers, not by the dude himself.

    Perhaps squash is to the US as fox hunting is to Britain: if you do it, you are an out of touch elitist douche by definition.

    This is beyond retarded. What’s next, US Senate investigating Auburn’s propensity for the illegal chop-block? They really should get cracking on Reggie Bush, too, if they are so fucking stoopid as to waste time on steroids in baseball and now this ultimate king of all non story stories.

    Oh, and stop stop stop stop OMG for the love of all that is good and great please fucking stop using the suffix “gate” on every moderate newsworthy thing that happens in this country.

  4. I hesitate to even mention it, but Mrs DC Trojan used to play squash when she was an undergrad at Vassar, on the grounds that there aren’t many sports where being 5 feet tall isn’t a complete disadvantage. Mind you, she was also a cox’n for the womens crew team until she was offered what was described as a “promotion” to a boat for the men’s team… she felt that was a stupid thing to say at a college that had been co-ed for fewer than 20 years at the time.

    Perhaps she can be the exception to the rule.

  5. SO yeah, I don’t feel stupid at all right now.

    Of course she is the exception. I meant more for men on the squash thing, but I’ll just stop talking now.

  6. I shouldn’t have mentioned it but it’s too late now.

    I know what you mean though – the notion of men playing squash does suggest a sort of middle-agead, detached, upper-crusty Ivy League skull and bones type whose entire family hasn’t paid attention to college football since grandfather’s raccoon coat was accidentally ignited after he “collapsed” next to the tail pipe of the Duesenberg.
