Someone actually found my site by googling that. Another one googled Henry Waxman Gay. Most people though, are just googling Henry Waxman. And they’re doing it so much that my Henry Waxman To Investigate Conservative Talk Show Hosts? post from last October, is currently my number one post.
I’m guessing all the interest in Waxman is stemming from the steroids in baseball hearings that he’s conducting. And since I have virtually no interest at all in anything sports related, and I wouldn’t know Roger Clemens from a figure skater, I will refer you to Rush, who discussed the issue yesterday on his show, saying that the hearing has broken along partisan lines:
CALLER: Well, we’ll hold that in abeyance. I want to get straight to the point. Last night I was surfing through the channels and came across C-SPAN and happened to catch the Senate oversight committee with the Clemens issue, and I am a conservative Republican in the state of South Carolina. I am so conservative, I make Bonnie and Clyde look like Dale Evans and Roy Rogers. I got so infuriated when I’ve seen and sit and listened to Henry Waxman — who reminded me of a woodchuck smiling through a picket fence — going after Clemens with just a travesty, never giving this man an opportunity to defend himself on the whole Democratic side reminded me of an 1800s lynch mob. If this is the best that this government can do in the Democratic oversight committee, and worry about steroid use based on a report by an ex-senator, Mitchell, then we’re in a world of hurt up there in Washington.
RUSH: This was the House committee that Chairman Waxman chairs.
CALLER: I understand. I misrepresented it. I’m sorry.
RUSH: I watched a little bit of this yesterday. You have to understand why this happened. I’m like you. To see a congressional committee go after a private citizen like this, it’s just infuriating.
CALLER: It’s an abomination.
RUSH: These hearings “never fed a hungry child.”
CALLER: No, they didn’t.
RUSH: If anybody ought to be going after this it should be the Justice Department. However, Roger Clemens asked for this opportunity. He wanted it. He’s looking at the circumstances, and he’s trying to preserve his reputation here, and he wanted this opportunity. And he got it. What I found fascinating about this — I don’t know if you noticed this, and I mentioned this yesterday. One of the things that fascinated me, is this was partisan. The Republicans were all on Clemens’ side. The Democrats were savaging Clemens.
CALLER: Isn’t that amazing? I watched that last night. I watched the representative from Massachusetts go after Clemens, and then the Republicans go off the trainer. I just looked at this and I’m going, “Is this the best that they can do?” It’s just amazing, absolutely amazing.
RUSH: Your expectations of these people are obviously way too high. This probably is the best they can do, something like this. But I’ve got another theory about this I want to get to in just a second. But let’s talk about the partisanship of this. How in the world does something like this become partisan? How in the world do all the Democrats line up savaging Clemens and basically, you know, almost taking the side of the trainer? What they really said was they believed Andy Pettitte, not the trainer. The Republicans… It was like Clemens was being appointed to the federal judiciary.
I don’t get it, either…but then I don’t really care.
Totally Unrelated, but weird!
