"I and millions of fans think that's pathetic."

That's a Republican, Jim Bunning, speaking for all of us about baseball's steroid problem. A year ago, the union didn't want steroid testing or any punishments; now they're proposing a 20 game suspension for a first time offender. I'd consider that progress, but Jim Bunning and John McCain are trying to grab some headlines by fighting for the integrity of America's past time.

If Jim Bunning wants to speak about what's pathetic, here's what one fan thinks. I think it's pathetic that your house majority leader was just indicted, I think it's pathetic that your President chose a crony who's only experience is running horse shows to head FEMA, I think it's pathetic that the federal government didn't respond quicker to Hurricane Katrina, I think it's pathetic that the administration is already politicizing the rebuilding of New Orleans, I think it's pathetic that you have so many hearings about this drug problem but just shrug off the President's past drug use and the governor of California's celebrated steroid use, I think it's pathetic that you haven't investigated the misleading arguments that lead us into the Iraqi quagmire, I think it's pathetic that nothing is been done about Karl Rove who compromised National security for political gain, I think it's pathetic that Congress is avoiding the topic of prisoner abuse, I think it's pathetic that nothing is being done about the oil industry and insurance companies screwing Americans after a natural disaster, I think it's pathetic that when there's so many important issues for you to address, you're wasting your time on baseball.
