Udall Latches on to Baseball Resolution to Break Congressional Slump

Headline from Politico.com: Boulder liberal Rep. Mark Udall and his political leaders - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker Nancy Pelosi - have gone 1-for-40 on Iraq resolutions since they took over Congress in January.

In baseball terms, Udall and the Democratic do-nothing Congress are in a serious slump. When you reach a 1-for-40 slump, you try a different approach to get your swing back and raise your average. In this case, you latch onto a resolution honoring the National League champion Colorado Rockies:
"We just thought it would be only fair to honor the great work of the Colorado Rockies," said Udall spokeswoman Tara Trujillo.

Unlike Udall and the Democrats' earlier slump, let's hope the Rox resolution soars through. It may help them get their collective swing back.
