Sensenbrenner Is a Federalist

Understanding the principles of Federalism does not necessarily win popularity contests:

A bill to toughen penalties for cockfighting and dogfighting sponsored by Rep. Mark Green is being held up in the House Judiciary Committee by chairman and fellow Wisconsin Republican Jim Sensenbrenner

...In a statement, Sensenbrenner said, "Animal fighting is an abhorrent practice but is best handled by those already working to combat its practice - state and local officials."

He's right, of course. Just because it Feels Good doesn't make it a Federal issue.
