Our infamous Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was quoted comparing polygamy to organized crime. Perhaps someone needs to inform Mr. Reid that the best organized crime syndicate in the United States is the U.S. Congress.

While America is facing a disastrous banking crisis, excessive inflation, an energy crisis, an unprecedented balance of trade deficit, $4 a gallon gas and the invasion of illegal immigrants, Reid is busy having hearings on polygamy. It's just another example of the ineptness and political impotence of those who are supposed to be representing us.
