I know I’ve written about this before, probably recently but whenever I hear “We need a Congressional Investigation into [add your favorite boogyman here]”, it makes we want to throw my coffee cup at the TV. why? Because those investigations are freaking useless. Congress can waste time for months investigating whatever it is they suddenly all feel offended about and the outcome will be the same: Nothing will happen. If there are people involved that maybe should go to jail? Good luck getting theJustice Department to indict anyone except political enemies. And then, maybe. Congress could pass a bill making whatever it is they are so exercised about illegal, but when’s the last time that happened? Let’s pass a law making it illegal to hold investigations.
