The Democrats just can’t stop losing. It has gotten so bad that they even realize the habit of their losing ways.
Despite the annual softball game between the DNC and RNC being a time-honored tradition that goes back many years, the DNC is refusing to play the game this year.
The RNC was apparently “stunned” by the sudden announcement as the good-natured game was always a highlight of the year.
The game was an opportunity for both sides to compete in a friendly competition and put aside the politics for a day. After the game, everyone would head over to a nearby bar for a drink.
The DNC reportedly backed out this year saying that “all our players are out in the field this year. We won’t be able to play.”
In the past, good-natured bets would be made between both teams. In the 2014 game, Sean Spicer of the RNC and Mo Elleithee of the DNC made a bet that the loser would have to change their Twitter avatar to the logo of the winner.
“Annual GOP v The Democrats softball game tonight,” wrote Spicer. “Mo Elleithee, loser uses the other party’s symbol as their Twitter avatar all Thursday?”
“I was gonna suggest loser shaves his head, but no one would tell the difference with me. Not that it will matter…” Elleithee responded.
“I learned my lesson last time on head shaving,” replied Spicer. “Let’s agree on avatar.”
Last year’s game had Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Chairman Tom Perez standing next to each other in solidarity with Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot at a Republican softball practice.
Not surprisingly, the Democrats have a losing record to the Republicans in this softball game’s history.
Clearly, the talk of coming together of both sides by Democrats was just that; all talk. As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words.
