Democrats defeat Republicans 22-0 in Congressional Baseball Game
We previewed this year's Congressional Baseball Game yesterday, but no one predicted the game would be a 22-run drubbing by the Democrats at Nationals Park. The Republicans failed to score a single run, extending the Left's winning streak to five years now. You can click here to see the full roster for each side.

If you sneak a peek at that scoreboard, you'll see the Right's problem -- three hits and five errors aren't gonna win you a baseball game. That said, Louisiana Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond did a stellar job pitching for the Donkeys (it wasn't Georgia Democrat Frank Underwood?).
The game raised $300,000 for a few D.C. based charities, and the winners got a sweet trophy to hold onto for a year. And if you think the representatives don't care about winning, you'd be wrong. Just take a trip through the Congressional Record:
