"I agree with you that Republicans and the Braves have much in common," Kingston wrote, according to Fox Sports. "You could say that the Republicans "Bravely" take on tough issues such as defunding Obamacare and trying to curtail runaway spending. And we don't mind clearing the dugout for a good brawl. We also agree that Dodgers is a fitting name for the Democrats as they often "Dodge" serious issues such as balancing the budget or cutting spending."

Ha ha ha ha ha!

God I love conservative humor. So witty.

The Congressmen went on to add, "I will be a 'Tiger' for the people who elected me, even with a 'Giant' crisis facing our 'National' interest. Help me fight that 'Red' in the White House and 'Expos' him as a fraud, as we travel through this 'Rockie' time"

Oh god. That response just makes me feel like some of the "no way is he for real" trolls here might actually be serious...and that they might even be congressmen.

Dear Congresscritter,

You folks don't do funny.  Even your golf jokes suck.

You know...there is a valild baseball analogy to be made involving the Yankees/Dodgers/Republicans and how the Democrats are Kansas City/Pirates/small market teams/socialist who want revenue sharing because revenue sharing helps everyone.

But it is late on a Friday and I don't want to make it....

No, it wasn't. The surplus was projected to happen in the future. The Bush tax cuts killed it before it was born.

Given that Bush paterfamilias H.W. is often seen at Asstros games alongside that harridan Q-tip head of his, Barbara, this isn't far at all.  Poor Houston, thick with grungy Republicans.

Note to the democrats, before you claim you won the election, perhaps you should win the election.

AKA that republican house majority that you're complaining about was elected at the exact same time as Obama.
