Made of Sterner Stuff

At least one witness in the steroid hearings this week got it.

NBA Commissioner David Stern to the over-the-top Stephen Lynch (D-MA): "[T]he reality is, it worries me greatly if the absence of testing for any body -- including the members of Congress -- would somehow be used to say, 'Well, if you don't have it, that's proof that it must exist,' and then referring to a policy as pathetic." (Emphasis added.)

Exactly. Which raises the question: If Congress deems that children might get the wrong idea if they suspect that their sports heroes are using drugs to get ahead, then why not pass a law mandating every member of Congress take for random drug-testing? Surely passing laws is far more important than hitting a home run or scoring a touchdown?
