Congress and football

by on December 9, 2009

Congress and football. Or maybe it’s, football and congress. I’m not sure it matters, even if there is a difference. What’s congress up to, you might ask? Glad you asked. “a House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine its national champion“. There was a no vote, by Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga., who thought “we have more important things to spend our time on”.

Really congress? Great. Good job. I’ll agree with John Barrow on this one. Mind you, this isn’t nearly as troublesome as the fact that, back in July, there was a bill in congress to ban mermaids, and other halfbreeds. Another effort to delve into science fiction? I don’t think so. Senator Brownback was serious, and he’s tried to introduce this bill before.

Another one for the record books? I won’t even try to predict what they think of next. Some legislation about proper words during the ‘holiday season’?
