A Cheat Sheet for Sen. Rockefeller

Here's a cheat-sheet difference between politics and playing wiffleball at a children's birthday party. You know, in case he ever forgets...

--At a children's birthday party, winning and losing is not the most important thing, so play nice. In politics, not letting our country descend into a cesspool is the most important thing, so play to win.

--At a children's birthday party, it's important not to hurt anybody's feelings, even if they are being big babies. In politics, everybody act like big babies, and people whose feelings can get hurt by political opponents saying mean things about them should get out.

--At a children's birthday party, if you ever manage to get anyone by the balls, you should let go right away. In politics...well, I'm sure you get the idea.
