Where's Barry?

Just as we feared/suspected/groused: eleven subpoenas issued today to baseball people by the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, not a one of them to Barry Bonds.

Question: Under what stretch of definition does Government Reform and Oversight cover Major League Baseball, or any other sport?

Since Republicans are in the majority, we'd automatically classify this as a case where the advocacy of limited government is but the fancy sweet nothings in our ear during election campaigns. If the GOP were really interested in less government intrusion, they'd cancel this hearing now.

This is an expensive sideshow.
