Is a “sit-in” in the United States House of Representatives really what we have been reduced to in this nation? Speaker Ryan did exactly what you do with a childish tantrum, you ignore it. So craven is this act that, as PJ Media points out, even Gawker does not support it. All I can say is it would be far more entertaining with a few tie-dyed shirts, the faint odor of pot in the air, Jimi Hendrix on the 8-track, and maybe a little “free love” over in a dark corner somewhere. I have to make fun of this because otherwise it’s depressing.
Fortunately something really fun happened last night – Yasiel Puig of the LA Dodgers got a homer off a single and a bunch of errors by the Washington Nats. That’s the kind of stuff that makes baseball worth watching. You can see the video, with the Vin Scully call here. Even if you’re a Nats fan, you have to smile.
