From the Sports Illustrated website:
“Sen. Arlen Specter on Tuesday backed off a threat to have a Senate subcommittee investigate whether the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles violated antitrust laws in their handling of Terrell Owens.
Specter, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he talked to lawyers in the Department of Justice about the issue.
"I think it's more a matter for them than us because we've got ... a lot of matters which take precedence over this for our own time," said Specter, R-Pa.”
You’re right, Arlen: the Senate has other concerns which ought to “take precedence” over defending this arrogant jackass.
If you want to get into defending an “arrogant jackass”, why not look to the head of your own Grand Old Party?
