Baseball as politics
Not sure if this will influence the way you vote one way or the other in the future....

Since the Yankees won their first pennant (1921), every Democratic president except Lyndon Johnson has presided over two or more Yankee world championships. And during the past 50 years, the Yankees have won eight World Series in the 20 years in which a Democrat occupied the White House and have not won a single championship in the 30 years in which a Republican was president. During the past half century, the Yankees have won 40% of the time when a Democrat is president and 0% of the time when a Republican is president.

Hmmm...
So, I don't really follow these things, but I get the impression that a lot of people think that the word "Yankees" should always be preceeded by an unprintable one starting with "D." So voting Republicans into office could have several positive side effects! ;)
