Even the Losers.......

A Democrat pushes a resolution that celebrates the losers - now that is all to telling. I actually have tears in my eyes that it is so funny.

Lets pass one for the "insurgents" in Iraq - oh wait. That would require admiting that they are losing. How about we pass one for our men and women fighting....nope. That would pigeon hole us into the label of "not supporting our troops".

Oh well, Go Rockies! You are the best of the losers!

Congress congratulates Rockies

Congress passed a resolution this morning honoring the Colorado Rockies for winning the National League Championship and for reaching the World Series this season.
Rep. Mark Udall, D-Eldorado Springs, submitted the resolution in November, and it was passed today by voice vote.
"Winning House recognition for the champion of the National League is not as rewarding as it would have been to watch the Rockies win the World Series, but it shows that the Rockies won new fans," Udall said. "I hope this is a good omen for the new year ahead."

The full text of the resolution follows:
"Whereas on October 15, 2007, the Colorado Rockies completed a remarkable 21 out of 22 game-winning streak, with a 4-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and won the 2007 National League Championship series;
Whereas the Colorado Rockies then played in the franchise's first World Series against the Boston Red Sox;
Whereas the Colorado Rockies demonstrated remarkable team unity, as well as individual initiative and personal determination, and serve as a prime example of good sportsmanship;
Whereas the Colorado Rockies fans demonstrated their passion for their team, their love of baseball, and their character as some of the world's greatest baseball enthusiasts;
Whereas the city of Denver and the State of Colorado exhibited their ability to host a fantastic Major League Baseball post-season:
Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives congratulates the Colorado Rockies on winning the 2007 National League Championship and advancing to the 2007 World Series; the players, manager, coaches, support staff, ownership, and executives whose commitment to the game made this all possible; and the Boston Red Sox for their extraordinary success in winning the 2007 World Series; and directs the Enrolling Clerk of the House of Representatives to transmit an enrolled copy of this resolution to the 2007 Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox baseball teams; Colorado Rockies manager Clint Hurdle; and Colorado Baseball Partnership's chief executive officer and chairman Charlie Monfort.
