Thirty-seven

Do you watch baseball? I do. Not all the time, but I still watch a fair amount, and over the years I've seen a lot of changes.

One of them is not a change to the rules; in fact, it doesn't change anything that the players or the managers or the coaches or the umpires do, but it's still made a difference to the baseball watching experience.

Take a look at something you might have seen in years past.

You never see this nowadays, because sometime back in the 1970's the people who run Major League Baseball decided that when idiots run out on the field the broadcasters won't show them on TV. They concluded, wisely, why give them what they're craving, attention?

Why don't we just do that with the Republicans? Today they voted for the thirty-seventh time to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

And, as with the previous thirty-six votes, this vote means nothing.

So my suggestion is, stop talking about it. Stop putting it on the news. Stop writing about it.

Because what baseball learned is that giving idiots publicity just encourages them.

And do you really have any more interest in watching this:



Than you did watching this?

I'd love to see Boehner; however, I'm stuck watching Holder, Lerner, Clinton, Obama, and his talking head, Carney, lie straight to my face. Scary that you still are an Obama fanboy.
