If politics were a ballgame, how would describe the present situation?

Since the medias likes to trreat politics as nothing more than a team sport, I figure if you can;t beat 'em join 'em.

So here's my color commentary on the current situation if it were a baseball game...Please add your own analogy, if you feel so inclined.

It's the 9th inning in the game between DC Donkeys and the GOP Hogsters.

The Hogsters had played a more aggressive game while the Donkeys had been hapless and ineffective. So the score was 3-0 for the Hogsters going into the the ninth,

But then the Hogsters had suddenly lost it, not scoring when they were up, and then making a bunch of fumbles, and the Donkeys now have three men on base.
The final batter of the inning is up, and has so far had two strikes.

So we're ready for the final pitch. If the Donkey at bat makes a solid hit and the Hogsters fail to catch the ball, we're on the verge of a major upset victory. But if the Donkey strikes out -- of if the Hogsters manage to pull off a 9th Inning Surprise -- it'll be a loss for the Donkeys. Close but no seegar.

And the Hogster pitcher winds up for the pitch.....
