People attending Thursday night’s congressional baseball game were welcomed to the stadium by a few climate change protesters who apparently intended to shut down the evening’s event:

Guess what didn’t happen — the game was not shut down and went on as scheduled. However, the Democrat team might be regretting the fact the protesters couldn’t have shut down the game:

That might end up being the midterm election metaphor of the year, but the Democrats will be able to take solace in the fact that they struck a blow against the Republican team thanks to California Rep. Linda Sanchez:
Rep. Linda Sanchez just flipped off the Republican bench after drawing a walk and getting pulled for a pinch-runner lmao

If one instance of “flipping the bird” was worth 11 runs the Dems would have emerged victorious.

Perhaps the Democrats will appeal the loss on the grounds of Russian interference.

Democrats might think Rep. Sanchez hit a home run with that but… they lost anyway. Imagine the reaction after the November midterms.
