    Halfway into Bush's 2nd term when democrats won the majority in both houses of congress what is the first important National issue they tackled? The potential collapse of Fannie Mae? Nope. Democrats went after steroid use in Baseball. When the McCarthy like hearings went bust, democrats went after Hall of Fame pitcher Roger Clemens who is on trial in federal court for "lying to congress". If we indicted every member of congress for lying the Capital building would be virtually empty. America is going to hell in a handbasket and A.G. Holder's justice dept thinks it's important to send a Hall of Fame pitcher to jail? Give me a break. The judge in the case has announced that he might declare a mistrial because of improper conduct by the prosecution.

    When you refer to an event in the news, you need to give us a link.

    Where does it say I need to give you a link? This isn't a bulletin board for media bites. It's a discussion forum. What do you think about it or do you think?

    It's a mistrial but it seems the "justice" dept is going to waste taxpayer money and do it all over again.

    Clemens is not a Hall of Fame Pitcher


    Based on his steroid use, he may never get in. If it were up to me ....he wouldn't

    The rules clearly state that when you quote something you have to link to the original, or at least acknowledge the source. You did neither.

    Actually, it really looks like they are completely incompetent, threw the dice and lost, or deliberately fucked up the case in order to blame the fact that they cannot get a conviction on the judge tossing the case.

    Sounds like a clear case of deliberate misconduct to me.

    Were I the judge I would fine the DDA for that and send him to poky for a weekend for contempt.
