We're spending $100Bn/yr in Iraq, for no apparent ROI.So what does REPUBLICAN Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) want Congress to investigate?
The U.S. economy is tanking.
The FBI continues to abuse "National Security Letters".
Oil is at $124/bbl. Gas at $3.75/gal
Specter asks Mitchell-type probe into SpygateYes! Of course! Let's investigate the New England Patriots for spying on the competition! It makes perfect sense. This is clearly a TOP NATIONAL PRIORITY!!!

WASHINGTON — A day after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell all but closed the door on "Spygate," Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) said Wednesday he wants it kept open with an independent investigation.
If the league declines to do so, Specter indicated he will consider taking steps to urge a congressional hearing on the matter.
After spending nearly three hours Tuesday meeting with former New England Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh, who also met with Goodell Tuesday, Specter said the Patriots' methods of taping opponents' defensive signals damages the credibility of the game. "It's really an insult to the people who follow it," said Specter. "… They owe the public a lot more candor and a lot more accountability."
Thank goodness for Senator Specter!
Stop the madness.
