WASHINGTON – Democrats and Republicans came together for the congressional baseball game at Nationals Park benefiting local charities in the nation’s capital.

“It’s fun. It’s a beautiful night. It stopped raining so it’s a good night to see fellow members make fools of themselves, it’s great,” said Republican Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz.

PJ Media asked Chaffetz if the game would help both parties agree on issues off of the field.

“I don’t know. I hope Republicans will ultimately score a run or two – that would be nice to get on the board. Democrats are pretty good at baseball,” he told PJ Media before the game concluded with Democrats winning 22-0. It was the fifth year Dems won the game in a row.

South Carolina Republican Senator Tim Scott was hopeful the Republicans would catch up from being 8 runs down.

“Never surrender. We’re right in the middle of the game – it’s not over yet. We can still come back,” said Scott during the game.

“It’s a great time. It’s a good charity opportunity to see Congress members, senators giving back to the community; fantastic game. It provides an opportunity for a bipartisan relationship, which is necessary so this is good stuff.”

In reality, they are mostly on the same general page. While there are some divisions, within a small faction of the Repub Party, the fact of the matter is that they are pretty much in sync with major policy, aside from all the theatrics.
How is this so? Well, the proof, as is said, is in the pudding - http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/29/republican-national-convention-heralds-arab-spring-in-its-platform-oblivious-to-the-unfolding-arabmuslim-nightmare-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

So, when you see McCain, plus a gaggle of other senior reps, standing shoulder to shoulder with Huma Abedin, Hill's Deputy COS, you know, the Muslim Sisterhood operative from State, then you know that many so called conservatives are also in thrall with Islamic penetration. This is just one example, but a MAJOR one which details their like mind, and Benghazigate is another, despite Issa's hearings - http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/13/is-the-republican-leadership-aiming-for-the-truth-re-benghazigate-embedded-radio-interview-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

Republicans had a winning streak in the game a few years ago. Now it's the Democrats' turn on top -- though with the recent stories in the news, it wouldn't be a shock to learn the Dems used the NSA to steal the Republicans' signals...

The important question is 'Why is the GOP so lousy at baseball?!?!?!?!' In my book this may be an indication of a serious collective character flaw. Was there anyone on the Republican side who didn't completely embarrass their country at America's Favorite Pastime?

Democrats are just a lot more comfortable with bats in their hands, even if they're being used to hit baseballs instead of people.
