Arlen Spector Really Has Nothing Better To Do

We’re coming up on a pretty important time in our country. In less than two months we’re going to be deciding who the next person to run this land from sea to shining sea is going to be. It’s going to be an incredibly historic election as well, because no matter what happens, we’re either going to have our first black President, or our first female Vice President.

Over the last few weeks, millions of Americans have been tuning into both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions to find out each candidates plans on fixing things. Trivial things like national security, the failing economy, and of course the environment. You know who probably wasn’t listening, though? Pennsylvania senator Arlen Spector. He could care less about all those so called “issues.” What he wants to know is how we’re going to save the NFL from those no good cheating New England Patriots.


Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Penn.) still refuses to give the New England Patriots or the NFL a pass on Spygate and says he’s hellbent on his crusade against pigskin cheating.

“I don’t do anything except with vigor,” Specter told the Track yesterday after a Republican National Convention health care forum sponsored by The Creative Coalition. “I think there will be more on the issue of irregularities with the NFL. I published a report in June that gave my position, but there will be more aspects of this that need to be examined.”

Commissioner Roger Goodell thought he closed the door on the Spygate taping scandal after getting a look at the footage shot by Pats video boy Matt Walsh and determining there was no proof Bill Belichick ordered the taping of the Rams walk-through before Super Bowl XXXVI.

He just won’t let it die!

Listen, Senator Spector, I understand that you’re an Eagles fan and you’re still somewhat bitter about your team’s defeat in Super Bowl XXXIX. I’m a Bears fan, and the sting of their loss in Super Bowl XLI is still felt to this day. At the same time, I realize that it’s only a damn football game.

You weren’t elected to office by the people of Pennsylvania to fix problems in the NFL, you were elected to fix problems in the United States. Congress has wasted enough of our time and tax dollars in recent years worrying about steroids in baseball as it is, and we’d all appreciate it if you stopped wasting more of our money on things only of interest to you.

I mean, did the Patriots tape Eagles practices and find out a secret way to make Donovan McNabb choke and puke in the huddle? The Eagles lost to a better team that day. Accept it, and move on with your life.
