Questions we'd have asked the Texas Con Man while he was under oath
Do you realize that everyone with a shred of common sense in these chambers realizes you are completely full of b.s., to the point that even the comatose rodent nesting atop Rusty Hardin's head is rolling its eyes?
Is "K" the only letter in the alphabet you can identify?
Whenever you joined a team as a free agent, it was never because "the guys" begged you relentlessly, or because you respected Mr. Torre, or because you didn't want to disappoint Mr. Steinbrenner, or because you desired to win a championship, or because you had a fondness for a particular city, or because you wanted to be closer to your family, but because that particular team happened to be the one throwing the biggest stinkin' piles of loot your way, was it not?
You really did think Toronto borders Texas, didn't ya, you big dummy?

Do you have to suppress a guffaw when you hear the phrase "injected Debbie in the buttocks in the bedroom"?
Do you like gladiator movies?
C'mon, even you must admit the "I thought it was the ball," excuse after raging at Piazza was lame, even for a dim-witted hillbilly like you . . . agreed?
Does Debbie cry herself to sleep at night listening to "Stand By Your Man"?
Do you realize that if Debbie really did load up on HGH, there's a decent chance she is seriously going to kick your bloated #*# when you get home?
So, whatcha getting Debbie for Valentine's Day? Perhaps Whitman's offers an injectable sampler?

Who wrote your opening statement, Miss Teen South Carolina? (Hat tip: The Big Lead. Dammit, they beat me to it.)
Do you think the Post will go with the "Oaf Under Oath!" headline tomorrow, or will it be the Daily News?
Does it make you feel better that prisons and your beloved University of Texas essentially have the same uniform colors?
Do you consider Suzyn Waldman another satisfied customer?
Do you really expect us to believe Mr. Pettitte, Mr. McNamee, Mr. Knoblauch, and indirectly, the honorable former senator Mitchell, are being dishonest here, while you, a man with a long history of being a compulsive and transparent liar, is telling the truth?
Do you really believe all these geezers in Congress were born yesterday?
And just one more, Mr. Clemens. While we're here, why not come clean on your longest-running lie: You asked out, didn't you?
