World Series: Pelosi's Giants vs. Rove's Rangers

Original post made by dublinmike on Oct 23, 2010

World Series: Pelosi's Giants vs. Rove's Rangers !

Battle of the lefties vs. the righties. What a match!

Gee, couldn't it be this simple instead of the hostility we read and face? Here we are, battling each other rather than facing external threats.

China is now our greatest threat and but instead we worry about Tea Bagger vs. liberal Democrats; Beck vs Olbermann; Fox News vs. moveon.org.

We worry about getting to the grocery store before dinner even it means rudely cutting someone off getting a cart, we worry about beating a red light even if it means imperiling another person's life, we are threaten if we think a Christian President is not born in the USA yet blow off foreign sources of donations to the US Chamber of Commerce...

Sigh.... in the meantime...Go San Francisco Giants! I only wish my Republican AND former carpenter's union treasurer dad was still alive to see this World Series...

How twisted can you be to even think in those terms. Enjoy the games and hang up your 24/7 DEM - UNION campaigning ! !
This Republican was and will be yelling bigtime for Giants. Sad that your union mentality has so muddled your mind...typical that is clouds your vision.

Hey Dublin Mike,

I'm dueling it with some of my "Red State Texan" friends. They enjoyed your caption - LOL! They had already turned it into a blue state, red state World Series. Don't worry, there's a number of us Republican leaning Giant's fans! As for the focus on the game - even during the depression, people flocked to the movies - escapism is a good defense mechanism.

Since the Pleasanton Tea Party is boycotting San Francisco does that mean they are pulling for the Rangers? Can we convince them to move Texas?

The PW editors and I find the term "teabagger" offensive because of its non-political connotations.
