Yesterday turned out to be one of those times when you just had to laugh.
Henry Waxman, the chairman of The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, announced that he and Tom Davis were sending Attorney General Michael Mukasey a five-page letter that said Miguel Tejada knowingly made false statements to the committee’s staff back in 2005.
Beautiful. Absolutely marvelous.
A couple of Congressmen dropping the hammer on a guy like Tejada is high comedy if you’re into that sick, perverted humor that seems to go over well in Washington.
Congress never gave Tejada a second thought when they were helping U.S. businesses profit from the poverty he grew up in. And it certainly didn’t bother Congress that Tejada and millions of other children around the world were and are malnourished because of the policies they set.
Major League Baseball teams don’t have any use for poverty stricken, malnourished kids that can’t hit bombs and throw bullets so Tejada did his best to survive in a system that was stacked against him.
Now Congressmen – the very people that stacked the system – are questioning Tejada’s honor and integrity?
If you didn’t laugh, you might go to Washington and punch Waxman and Davis right in the nose.
