Holy hoo-has, these depositions are really the gifts that keep on giving! If you believe Brian McNamee (and in this case, I think we all should), it appears that Debbie Clemens didn't have too much trouble with showing off her storebought Rockets at Jose Canseco's now-famous soiree.
Meanwhile, Jose's wife didn't mind displaying her set of mini-Bash Brothers, either. Apparently, it was like that scene from Summer Rental (yeah, you know the one), but sadly, no photographic evidence was entered into our nation's record.
Q: We've received evidence that there was a team party at Canseco's house, but that Mr. Clemens was golfing that day and wasn't at the party. It sounds like you have a pretty clear recollection of seeing Mr. Clemens at this party along with some family members, is that right? Are you certain about that?
A: Roger showed up after golf, I believe. Maybe he was golfing. I don't know if he was golfing. He might have showed up a little bit later, but no, he was there the whole time for the most part. He was in the house. I could tell a specific story about him being there, which was involving Jose (Canseco), Jose's wife and Roger's wife when they went inside, when the guys showed up. I mean, they talked -- no disrespect, but they talked about how great Jose's wife's augmentation job was to Debbie and showed her. And then Debbie showed her her augmentation job.
Now, are we really to believe this situation wasn't worth a line of questioning in yesterday's public testimony? Because as it's presented, I'm not sure if Canseco and McNamee were the only ones privy to this scene or if Clemens and others also provided witness. If nothing else, perhaps the whole thing would have jogged Clemens' memory as to whether he was at this party or not.
Oversight Committee, indeed.
