The Majority Whip

DC works in a funny way sometime. When someone at the lowest level of a government agency screws up, the man at the top often has to fall on his sword, even if he's 15 levels of power away from the peon who effed it all up. When something goes wrong, someone needs to be held accountable. Hence, the Lame Duck Award.

But, when something goes beautifully, someone needs to be rewarded. Ergo the Majority Whip Award*

It was an easy call today, Congratulations!

The Kentucky Masher, Brad Wilkerson! (Seen here admiring his homer)

Fear not, Brad. You're not going to have to hit a cycle every night to win the award! (Unless the poltegeist inhabiting Vinny Castilla's body keeps up its tricks)

I can't offer an autographed copy of Saving the Pitcher, like Distinguished Senators, but I'll extend the offer to come to my apartment for some veggie tacos. Have your people call mine!

*Award bares no comparison to the douchebag politician formerly staining its office.


  • Not a fan of Roy Blunt, eh?

  • Roy's fine. It's the guy who USED to have that job -- the one who's Roy's boss now.

    You may have read about his latest scandal in today's Post! ;)

  • Ah, yes. Can't say as I'm a fan of him either.

  • Hey, it's no big deal. In a way, his trip was almost American. Like the saying goes, just like Reds of Cincinnati, only different ideology. (Yeah yeah, that one doesn't really work anymore but I still like it.)

  • Why is it that the first defense in this city is usually, "Hey, the other party did it too?"

    Shouldn't our politicians have better standards than that.

    That being said, the deal in the paper doesn't get me that worked up. It's way down on the list of reasons not to like the guy. He's a thug. He's damn good for the Republicans, but not necessarily for better politics.
