Another GOP Losing Season
The horrendous loss absorbed by The Republicans in Connecticut in the Nov. 6 election brings to mind Ted Williams and the dismal seasons he spent with the Red Sox.
An exemplary player on a team that was underfunded and woefully noncompetitive, he put up season after superlative season. Toward the end of a bleak season, he would make plans to go fishing, which he did with as much passion as he played baseball. With the last game played, he would quietly depart the clubhouse with no anger or recrimination toward his team.
The offseason would be spent with some angst over yet another losing season, replaying in his mind what went wrong and how to improve. He would come to spring training in shape and ready to do battle.
I am at a loss to explain why the Republicans in Connecticut did not have a better showing and, not withstanding my own trepidation, am looking forward to the next voting cycle.
