Yesterday's marathon session of the Armed Services Committee hearing in the House saw several spirited debates, including Rep. Ron Barber's successful amendment to save the A-10 from being mothballed. has an interesting take on the hearing, ending with comparing the 68-year-old Congressman with Indiana Pacers Center Roy Hibbert.

From the post:

"One might say Barber went Roy Hibbert — the Indiana Pacers center who helped lead his team to a big playoff win over the Wizards on Wednesday evening — on the GOP Gortat-like defensive machine."

Barber's biography on his House and campaign web site make no mention on whether he played basketball while attending Rincon High School.
