The Party of Limited Gover....wait a second...

No one would ever accuse Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa) of taking up the cause of Conservatism, but with Specter calling on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to give an account of the destroyed tapes from "Spygate", it further adds to the frustrations of Conservatives who reject the mantra of "government knows best".

Letter to Goodell

Letter to Specter

I understand the NFL's antitrust exemption and how one could argue that the NFL owes a higher duty of transparency to the public, but are we really witnessing the official questioning of an intracorporation act by an United States Senator? Between this and the rise of "Straight-Talk Express", I feel like I'm having a bad dream.
