I Wonder if Senator Geary Made the Clemens Hearing
Is it just me, or did Clemens at times conjure up memories of another famous hearing before Congress?
"In the hopes of clearing my family name, and in the sincere desire to give my children the fair share of the American way of life, without a blemish on their name and background, I have appeared before this committee and given it all the cooperation in my power. I consider it a great dishonor to me personally to have to deny that I am a criminal. I wish to have the following noted for the record: that I served my country faithfully and honorably in World War II and was awarded the Navy Cross for actions in defense of my country; that I have never been arrested or indicted for any crime whatsoever; that no proof linking me to any criminal conspiracy whether it is called "Mafia" or "Cosa Nostra" or whatever other name you wish to give has ever been made public. I have not taken refuge behind the 5th amendment, though it is my right to do. I challenge this committee to produce any witness or evidence against me. And if they do not, I hope they will have the decency to clear my name with the same publicity with which they now have besmirched it." - Michael Corleone, apprearing before Congress in The Godfather, Part II, 1974
Wrap yourself in that flag, Rocket.
Also if you look carefully behind Clemens, you can see the guy who played him in Roger Clemens 2057.
