There are plenty of possibilities for political jabs in this news: The Democrats beat the Republicans 22-0 in the 2013 Congressional Baseball Game, held Thursday at Nationals Park in Washington D.C. Of the baseball beatdowns we've seen this year, it ranks firmly between the 65-0 high school game and the 27-9 Triple-A game.
Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond was the star for the Democrats as he threw a three-hit complete game shutout, which makes you wonder if the Democrats actually dressed up Justin Verlander or Matt Harvey in disguise.
Actually, Richmond has a history of dominating the Republicans. He threw a one-hitter in 2011 and in 2012 he struck out 16 hitters. Either Richmond is a stud, or the Republicans really need to hit the batting cages.
For a bunch of socialists who want everything to be fair to everyone, it's amazing the Democrats didn't stop the game, call it 11-11 instead and give every single player a trophy. Amiright?!?
