CORKED BATS....Mindles Dreck points out some awkward timing by the House of Representatives on Monday. Sometimes you just can't win.

And speaking of Sammy Sosa (although you wouldn't know that if you didn't click on the link above), last night the sports guy on Channel 5 told the story about Sammy's corked bat and then did a little chitchat with the anchors. Hal Fishman, Mrs. Calpundit's favorite anchor, asked (more or less) "But accusations of cheating aren't fair, are they? How is he supposed to know what's inside his bat?"

As near as I can tell, he was serious.

UPDATE: Apparently they've checked all 76 of Sosa's other bats and found no cork in any of them. So maybe it was just an honest mistake.
