Protest Sign: This Is Also What Democracy Looks Like


Clicking = Embiggening

As a resident of Madison, Wisconsin, I’m informed with some regularity that this is what democracy looks like — where this is a group of people who’ve gathered to express their frustrations with governor Scott Walker.

I don’t care to comment on those proceedings per se — except, perhaps, to say that Wisconsinites are skilled at gathering and staying gathered. Rather, I’d like merely to suggest that democracy probably looks like a lot of other things, too — for example, Prince Fielder celebrating concurrently (a) a game-winning home run and (b) his momentary victory over death.

It’s a shame that the only retaliation for this celebration was only a Barry Zito fastball. That is assuming you call that a fastball.

You can’t retaliate against democracy. The Barry Zito fastball is equal to the Cuban Missile crisis with more nerf guns and less missiles.

A glutenous monster bowling over his whole team as he celebrates his enlarged state, his home run, and his upcoming mega contract courtesy of his agent is reminiscent of democracy?

I agree.

I did a google search for ‘baseball democracy’.

This was the yield:

That’s what Fangraphs gets for not acknowledging all the non-Americans in baseball.[/ignorantreply]

you’re looking at it backwards. If it comes up in a search for ‘baseball democracy’ then it’s American. Mexico stole the taco from us around the time we stole Texas.
