Just when you think Congress couldn't do something even dumber than it already has....

This today from a House subcommittee a plan to force college football into an annual championship playoff.

At least one Democrat had the intelligence to say this whole thing was ridiculous. Congress is so full of itself that we can only hope that they will recess for Christmas and not come back.

As I said on Facebook, it's probably time to retire the bald eagle as the national symbol and replace it with a whiny little baby in diapers or a big open hand waiting for "Obama money."

It's truly sad what is happening right now. Someone should ask these representatives to come home and face the out-of-work voters and find out how important a college playoff is to them.

My favorite quote in the story:

The subcommittee chairman, Rep. Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democrat who co-sponsored the bill, said, "We can walk and chew gum at the same time."

Can we take a poll on how the American people feel about that?

Perhaps the NCAA can work on healthcare or regulating Wall Street. At least the football and basketball programs are making tons of money.
