Baseball rules

The rule I’ll discuss is this one: “If your pitcher hits our batter, our pitcher will hit your batter.” Trust me, that’s how it actually works in baseball (watch video below).

Lacking votes to expel them, Democrats banned Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ) from committees for inciting political violence. They had legitimate complaints.

Greene was punished for posting online that the “quickest way” to remove Speaker Pelosi was “a bullet to the head” (details here); Gosar for a video depicting him killing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and attacking President Joe Biden (details here).

In return, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) says if he’s elected speaker he’ll banish Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from committees (see story here).

Their offenses? Swalwell and Schiff were involved in Trump’s impeachments; Omar, an outspoken advocate for Palestinian causes, promoted boycotts against Israel.

That’s not on Greene’s and Gosar’s level, but that has nothing to do with it. It’s simple, McCarthy plays by baseball rules.
