I respect John McCain a ton, and acknowledge that has an established track record of supporting federal oversight in combat sports, but this is ridiculous. You'd think that politicians would have learned from the outcomes of the Bonds and Clemens trials.
Sad but true: Voters have short memories, and maybe now, in the heat of the controversy, it's politically favorable to take a fan-friendly position on the Pacquiao fight. But aren't we trying to reduce government spending. Doesn't it cost money even to propose such a stupid idea? Fucking politics.
