Think the Republicans can't sink any lower? Despite being busy underfunding the troops, coddling the rich, and passing vital legislation like flag burning amendments; they have managed to find time to declare that Democrats shouldn't own baseball teams.
"Via Atrios, the DCCC reports that Republicans are threatening Major League Baseball if it sells the Washington Nationals to a group that includes George Soros. A Soros critic, John Sweeney (R-N.Y.), asks, 'from a fan's perspective, who needs the politics?'
Who indeed? Does Mr. Sweeney also object to Bush pioneer William O. DeWitt, Jr., owning the Cardinals? Or Bush pioneer Carl Lindner owning the Cincinnati Reds? Or Bush pioneer Tom Hicks -- who also made W a rich man -- owning the Texas Rangers? (In fact, thirteen current or former owners and their family members are Bush Rangers or Pioneers.)"
