    It is that time again and I am sure a lot of players are feeling like Casey, Frustrated

    Then Casey started seeing red,
    And smashed the kid upon the head
    And then again, then thrice, and more
    Until the umpire announced “ball four”

    Too bad when it comes to voting, most voters are thrown out on third by the shortstop. “I don’t care” throws it to “I don’t know” and the voter is out of the game.

    @Harleyquinn

    A lot of people won’t get the chance to vote because of new voter ID laws. -3 photo IDs plus a birth certificate? I couldn’t come up with those. A driver’s license, YES.

    For those not familiar with the full poem, Mr Danziger is saying that President Obama now has two called strikes because he let two balls go right over the plate where he could easily have hit them.


    (Not to mention predicting that President Obama is about to strike out.)

    I’m pretty sure that’s not Obama.

    “Of course there is no voter id law that requires all these items. This is just another lying lib.”

    No, It was struck down in court..

    “The pitcher smiled and cut one loose – across the plate it sped;
    Another hiss, another groan. “Strike one!” the umpire said.
    Zip! Like a shot the second curve broke just below the knee.
    “Strike two!” the umpire roared aloud; but Casey made no plea.

    No roasting for the umpire now – his was an easy lot;
    But here the pitcher whirled again- was that a rifle shot?
    A whack, a crack, and out through the space the leather pellet flew,
    A blot against the distant sky, a speck against the blue.

    Above the fence in center field in rapid whirling flight
    The sphere sailed on – the blot grew dim and then was lost to sight.
    Ten thousand hats were thrown in air, ten thousand threw a fit,
    But no one ever found the ball that mighty Casey hit.

    O, somewhere in this favored land dark clouds may hide the sun,
    And somewhere bands no longer play and children have no fun!
    And somewhere over blighted lives there hangs a heavy pall,
    But Mudville hearts are happy now, for Casey hit the ball." – from Casey’s Revenge by Grantland Rice.

    in debate 1 Obama phoned it in as though he had a child relative who would be tortured if he did not throw the fight. or rocky mountain altitude zonk. or exhaustion of rolling that obdurate white publican rock up the mountain behind the molehill. He’s not allowed to be a wimp, he’s not allowed to be an Angry Black Man, not allowed to be himself, and thats a wicked f-ing crucible. His planned assassinations, the dumping of Bin Laden at sea, the crackdowns on whistleblowers, the continuation of Guantanamo prove that he’s got the misguided yet requisite macho cred. but he’s playing (as is Elder R) to the Stockholm Syndrome crowd, bombarded by a bought media and obscenely expensive soundbites of coolaid.

    Let’s hope the last verse is better…Mighty Casey strikes out. There will be “no joy in Mudville” if that happens.

    “Oh yes!” – from Mudville, Stockholm Syndrome, USA.
