Do Republicans Love Illegal Drugs?

Watching the hearings and with Pettitte and Knohblauch backing up everything Brian McNamee said about them, I can't see how anyone would think a guy clearly besotted with Clemens would tell the truth about everyone else but lie about him.

Anyway, am I the only one who thinks it's bizarre that the committee is breaking down along party lines, with Republicans by and large loving Clemens and Democrats being tough and assertive? Do Republicans love illegl drug use? Do Republicans not care about America's pastime? I mean, there is no doubt that illegal drug use and cheating is rampant throughout baseball (and football and basketball) regardless of what you think about any individual player. And yet, the Republicans almost to a person seem to be ignoring the problem.

I agree, I am a registered Republican but simply don't understand the strong Clemens defense from the Republicans....down right odd to me.

I'm a registered Republican too, but consider myself an Independent. If I could vote in primaries in NYC as an Independent, I'd switch. Surely they couldn't have been that excited by having Clemens visit their offices?
