Morrissey: They are the quarry.
And it explains how Clemens finds himself at the mercy of a jury after being accused of lying to Congress about his use of drugs during a career in which he won seven Cy Young Awards.
What separates them from most human beings is that they seem to believe what they’re saying. Is there anyone left on earth who believes them in return? And if so, why? Maybe for the same reason some people believe O.J. Simpson was innocent: They don’t want to believe the truth.
I suppose both men could be playing the role Harrison Ford did in ‘‘The Fugitive’’ — that of an unjustly accused man trying to clear his name. But if you believe this, then you have to believe that sinister forces are out to get them.
...To the people who whine that the Clemens trial is a waste of federal resources that should be used on more pressing criminal and civil matters: You’re so right. We shouldn’t prosecute any cases involving battery, theft, forgery or illegal firearms until, say, the banking system is cleaned up. Or, to take it to its logical conclusion, until we get to the bottom of what killed off the dinosaurs, all other prosecutions will be put on hold.
