A reader observes:

I have the Roger Clemens-Brian McNamee congressional hearings on the radio in my office. Apparently, all the Democrats on the committee are going all-out against Clemens while all the Republicans on the committee are only attacking McNamee. Who knew this was such a partisan issue?

Oh, and in case it wasn’t already obvious to all, Dan Burton is a freaking nutcase.

Apparently Rep. Clay eventually broke the pattern, going after both sides with equal vigor. For my part, I think congress ought to grow up and hold hearings on something important.

UPDATE: Another correspondent writes: “Waxman said he wanted to cancel the hearing but Clemens’s attorney wanted it.” Fair enough.
