"Smaller government"?

The Roll Call (subscription required) has an article entitled "Republicans Warn MLB on Soros Bid," in which prominent Capital Hill Republicans, including Tom Davis, the Chairman of the Government Reform Committee who hilariously views his committee's subject matter as centering on the baseball steroid issue, warn baseball against allowing a group that includes George Soros to purchase the Washington Nationals even if they are the high bidder:

"Davis, whose panel also oversees District of Columbia issues, said that if a Soros sale went through, 'I don't think it's the Nats that get hurt. I think it's Major League Baseball that gets hurt. They enjoy all sorts of exemptions' from anti-trust laws."

Other leading Republicans suggest additional forms of harassment, including denying funding for a new D.C. baseball stadium that would otherwise have been made available. And, as the Roll Call article helpfully notes, quoting several other prominent Republican Congressmen, there are plenty of other things Congress could do and presumably would.

I'm so glad these guys believe in limited government.

UPDATE: And on the same theme, here is a story about an attempt by House Energy and Commerce Committee chair Joe Barton to threaten and harass scientists for producing a study confirming that there is a global warming problem.

There are thousands of these stories.
