Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.

The Republican leadership in Congress clearly has its priorities straight. Joe Barton, chairman of an Energy and Commerce subcommittee, has dedicated himself to conducting a "serious investigation" of a "deeply flawed" system.

"Too often college football ends in sniping and controversy, rather than winners and losers," Barton said. "The current system of determining who's No. 1 appears deeply flawed."
No word yet on any Congressional "serious investigation" of the "deeply flawed" and wilful mishandling of intelligence that has effectively embroiled us in a victory-free regional conflict. But hey, I understand. They'll get to it when they get to it.

Joe Barton, if my memory serves me, also voted against Katrina rebuilding funds. Great guy, Joe. Sure loves his Longhorns.
