Another Clue that We've Really Turned that Old Corner...
Prosperity is just around the corner. A car in every pot, a chicken in every garage:
The Obama administration is considering several steps that would review the legality of the controversial Bowl Championship Series, the Justice Department said in a letter Friday to a senator who had asked for an antitrust review....
"Importantly, and in addition, the administration also is exploring other options that might be available to address concerns with the college football postseason," [Assistant Attorney General Ronald] Weich wrote, including asking the Federal Trade Commission to review the legality of the BCS under consumer protection laws....
"The administration shares your belief that the current lack of a college football national championship playoff with respect to the highest division of college football ... raises important questions affecting millions of fans, colleges and universities, players and other interested parties," Weich wrote.
Community Organizer in Chief Barack H. Obama, having already solved all the major problems that face our country -- having saved or created hundreds of millions of jobs (National service!), ended the threat of man-caused disaster (diplomacy!), fixed the economy (nationalization!), eliminated all those confusing choices in medical treatment (ObamaCare!), solved the energy crisis (windmills!), and made the Earth cool and the oceans subside (more windmills!) -- is now at leisure to turn his Obamacle eyes to federalizing college football bowl games.
My goodness, but our philosopher king's jug of benevolent despotism just never runs dry, does it?

The following hissed in response by: Ken Hahn
It would be difficult to make the BCS much sillier but if anyone can do it, it's our fearless leader. I have no doubt that the Speaker and Senator Reid can produce a 10,000 page law that will confuse everyone and cost colleges, universities, players and fans millions in new taxes and fines for nonparticipation. And I have no doubt that President Obama will sign it with a statement blaming President Bush for the failure to include Harvard in the national championship game ( which will be required to include quotas for minorities and women ).
