Zippidy Doo Da

I'm not stupid, I'm from Texas!

Sunday, December 13, 2009

That toxic little creep Joe Barton, R-Texas made the news again this week, not for denying climate science, or for being neck-deep into graft with Tom DeLay, but for his College Football Playoff Act of 2009. George Will, another sports fanatic wrote a column about it..

‘“They keep trying to tinker with the current system,” Barton says, “and to me it's like — and I don't mean this directly — it's like communism. You can't fix it.” He would toss the BCS into the ashcan where, arguably, it belongs. “It is,” he says, “simply a cartel, much like OPEC.”

“Barton's bill makes the usual perfunctory nod to the Constitution, finding that college teams travel in interstate commerce, and college games “involve and affect” such commerce and therefore — the usual non sequitur — it is fine for Congress to meddle.

“Barton's bill, which should draw a penalty for unnecessary roughness to the idea of limited government, demonstrates how Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce has become an end run around that idea.”

-Well, that goes to show how Barton’s gotten elected 13 times to Phil Gramm’s old seat. Red baiting: how clever. If that won’t float we can always go back to burning witches.

To show just how silly this all is, let me leave you with this from Jimmy Fallon:

"Congress was hard at work today trying to come up with a fair playoff system for college football. Meanwhile, the NCAA is kicking around ideas for how to win the war in Afghanistan."
