That Question About A-Rod

Michael Fletcher from The Washington Post, congratulations on being this week's Dumbest Reporter In America. Here's the doozy:

Michael Fletcher from the Washington Post?

Question: Yes, thank you, sir. What is your reaction to Alex Rodriguez's admission that he used steroids as a member of the Texas Rangers?

It's amazing how unimportant this issue is. You've got the ear of the most important man in the world and Michael Fletcher asks him about some stupid baseball player? We're in the middle of a fiscal crisis, two wars, and numerous other national and international issues. A-Rod could shoot up heroin, snort cocaine and disrobe during the all-star game and it would be immaterial. Reporters always ask presidents about these stupid baseball issues out of some misplaced "national pasttime" junk. Stop it! It doesn't matter.
