Where was the Senator when the Eagles used tax payer money to build a new stadium? The team is worth close to a billion dollars now..
I can only express puzzlement, which borders on alarm.
Don't ya know that it is the job of first class citizens like Magic Bullet Arlen to keep the proles happy with sports and gambling? </sarc>
"...What is wrong with this nut?..."
My first thought is, A LOT.
um, Arlen you asshat, there are real issues that need to be dealt with, this is not one of them.
So what do we know about Spector?
1. He's still worried about phone intercepts.
2. He probably stays up on Scottish law in case the President gets another Supreme court nominee.
3. He's worried about football and TV
Shoot if he was as worried about Philiadelphia getting hit by a terror attack he might be of some use. But he does not seem to be.
They'll be the equivalent of ghost towns. There's nothing better than watching a game at a sports bar.
He took a minute off of pushing for illegals or pushing for using embryo experimentation to extend his miserable life?
I'm glad the NFL is distracting him.
He's a menace.
At least the guy is no longer head of Judiciary after December -- still think he NEVER should have been the head and we needed someone to stand up to him in 2004. In fact, maybe if the WH had not interferred in that race, he would have lost and Santorum would have won this time!
Tagliabue isn't the commish anymore :)
Specter needs to investigate why the NFL lets the Lions be such a doormat decade after decade.
What happens to these people when they get to Congress??? Talk about majoring in the minors. We have a $9 trillion public debt, 2/3 of the annual budget is for giveaways, a war against terrorism, a Democrat/Liberal Congress, and this guy is worried about the NFL? Sorry, Arlen, but the world could survive without football (which is my favorite sport).
Yeah but Specter is hoping that people don't logically think about the problem.
I tried to have the channels dropped, but was told Colin Powell's little boy, as head of the FCC, mandated that all providers carry Spanish channels. I could not exclude those channels from my home.
Of course if Colin baby did order this it was with the approval of GWB and the politicians intent to cater to illegal aliens. Why not introduce a bill to make users pay for the channels. You know, like the Federal policy that when I want to use a Federal Park, I pay for admittance? Seems fair to me. I am sure you are concerned and will introduce the appropriate legislation. Thank you. Another PO'D American
Arlen Specter is one of the most whiney Senators there is...he complains about everything.
But, he is going to be the in the MINORITY next month...so we will see how much power he has.
The NFL didn't try to stop the XFL or the World League or any of the other startups from going...
More or less they ignored them and focused on their product on the field.
