our congress is worried about college football while people go hungry
these fuckers are soooo out of touch...

==========================

WHEELING - Sen. Joe Manchin wants a review of Sen. Mitch McConnell's alleged attempt to block West Virginia University's move to the Big 12 conference.

Manchin, D-W.Va., said it appeared late Tuesday that WVU would join the Big 12 conference as its newest member, replacing the University of Missouri Tigers.

But reports surfaced Wednesday that McConnell, - a Kentucky Republican and Louisville alumnus - lobbied on behalf of his alma mater to get the Cardinals into the Big 12. A New York Times report said he spoke with former Sen. David Boren, who is president of the U niversity of Oklahoma, a Big 12 conference member.

"I'm not accusing Sen. McConnell," Manchin said Wednesday evening.

6. You'd think there are more important things to worry about
This is like them sitting around debating naming post offices while refusing to raise the debt ceiling. It's meaningless issues like this that the choose to argue about and then wonder why the American people are fed up.
