Republicans, clearly inspired by their fans’ hysterical signs, defeated the Democrats at Thursday’s annual congressional baseball game for the first time since 2008.
There were a lot of funny signs to choose from, but The Daily Caller News Foundation narrowed them down to the top seven.
One GOP fan was more than willing to lose the game if it meant getting a political advantage in the upcoming 2016 elections.
Other GOP fans felt that the Democrats had a certain reputation to uphold for going all the way, even when it isn’t appropriate to do so.
Some fans used the game to comment on the recent Democratic sit-in calling for strict gun control.
Other fans felt the Republicans should “put away” Hillary Clinton in more than one sense.
In another example of clever wordplay, kicking of the Democratic donkey symbol was requested.
Other fans were just outright supportive of the GOP congressional Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California.
Naturally, the GOP fans were happiest to see the final score, where they defeated the Democrats eight to seven.
