What Would a GOP Baseball Team Look LIke?

Melody at Perfection Under a Red Umbrella has a wonderful post which wonders if the GOP were a baseball team, Who's on First?  Very, Very funny.

Here's a taste:

There are three types of baseball players: those who make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happens.

Introducing the 2011-2012 All-Star Republican Presidential Primary Team Line-up

Starting at Right Field: Rick Santorum
Current Position:  Private Citizen, former Senator from Pennsylvania
Manager's Assessment:  If ever was a manager's dream for a Right Fielder it is Rick Santorum.  He is perhaps the most devout social conservative in this years primaries.  Rick quickly defends Conservative postions.  When he is at bat he hits a line drive hard over the first base line.  If he hits a homer it is always delivered to the right field, porch or bleachers. Even his fouls go down the right field land.  Rick is having trouble making a connection with the fans who vote for allstars, and that shows in his low polling average.  Rick is going to have to find a way to make his message resonate in this crowded field. The shift in the early primary schedule could be his new best friend.  "No game in the world is as tidy and dramatically neat as baseball, with cause and effect, crime and punishment, motive and result, so cleanly defined." ~Paul Gallico

Starting at Center Field:  Mitt Romney

Current Position:  Private Citizen, former Governor of Massachusetts
Manager's Assessment:  Mitt Romney sure looks good in a baseball uniform. The problem... 
It struck me maybe my Cubbies could beat this team.  (No comments from you Cub-haters allowed!)  It is well worth reading the rest of the lineup here.
