Democrats best Republicans in Congressional baseball

Washington (CNN) - Democrats and Republicans squared off in the 50th annual Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park in Washington Thursday night.

Unlike the midterm elections, the Republicans never led in this one, falling to the Democrats 8-2 in front of more than 7,000 fans.

    Democrats WON because while we were growing up playing "stick" ball in vacant lots or on the middle of the street getting angry at drivers who pass by to disrupt us, the Republicans were figuring out how to get rich off the backs of those playing "stick ball" in vacant lots or on the streets!!
