For once, we can endorse some Republican legislation

Rep. Joe Barton of Texas has introduced a bill essentially mandating a college football playoff:

He said the bill — being co-sponsored by Reps. Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democrat, and Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican — “will prohibit the marketing, promotion, and advertising of a postseason game as a ‘national championship’ football game, unless it is the result of a playoff system. Violations of the prohibition will be treated as violations of the Federal Trade Commission Act as an unfair or deceptive act or practice.”

  1. Really? This from the party that pans cancer research as a trivial expenditure of money? I mean I, too, believe that the BCS is effed up like polio, but who gets penis rights over college football is a pressing Congressional concern of the Republicans?
