The Democrats didn't move the game. That would be the rich ultra conservative owners of baseball teams.

When the kneeling thing blew up, some liberal commentator wrote something along the lines of, "I never thought that when America got divorced, the left would get custody of the NFL."

This is why the Republicans never learn anything - thanks to their loyal army of walking pockets with room-temperature IQ's, they turn every consequence into a fundraising opportunity.

"Just because I was caught in bed with a 7 year old Jamaican boy that I paid $300 for, I'm being unfairly arrested and thrown in jail by the evil Democrat Communists and their legion of secular abortionists! Please send money."

53 Russians compared to 716 Americans and Canadians. There are more Swedes and Finns than Russians- the Russian Five (5 of 23 on a roster) was a massive aberration.

Follow up every one of their ads with reminders of their own hypocrisy and actions against America. I'd donate to the fund to come up with a solid ad that features McConnell saying Trump should have been impeached, reminders that they called it "tourism" on 1/6 while showing the names of the deceased... etc.

And by "liberal activists" he means the MLBPA. The same MLBPA he will need to negotiate a long-term contract with at the end of this season.

Manfred may have done some boneheaded things but he knows its better not to piss off the MLBPA more than he already has.
