Congress makes history!!!!!!!!!

Well they've finally done it! Congress finally got off their collective ass and accomplished something.
You see, taking IMPEACHMENT off the table was just the opening move of a brilliant chess match.
Their ultimate goal has finally been revealed. They have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to insure that we AMERICANS have the right, the unimpeachable right, the stick it to the man, in yer face right football!

“We have taken this extraordinary step because it is in the best interest of our fans,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday in a statement announcing the change. “What we have seen for the past year is a very strong consumer demand for NFL Network. We appreciate CBS and NBC delivering the NFL Network telecast on Saturday night to the broad audience that deserves to see this potentially historic game. Our commitment to the NFL Network is stronger than ever.”

Yeah, whatever. Know this: A week ago, Sens. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and Arlen Specter, R-Pa., the top-ranking members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter to the NFL threatening to reconsider the league's antitrust exemption if the game was not available in more homes.

Then, on Monday, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., wrote his own letter in which he said if more than 60 percent of the United States remained unable to see the game (NFL Network is available in about 39 percent of TV homes), he would “ask the Senate Commerce Committee to hold hearings on how the emergence of premium sports channels are impacting the consumer.”........more here

What a worthless bunch of jerks! We ask them to give us back our Constitutional rights, give us Universal Healthcare, get us the fuck out of Iraq, and they give us FOOTBALL! What a waste, what a joke, what a sham! Congress! Pffffft
