    One...Two...Three Strikes You're Out at the Old Ballgame

    What could be better than politics and baseball, together at last?

    Not much.

    At least that’s the thinking of the California Democratic Party which is organizing an “ambush” of the Governor as he attends an A’s/Angels game this evening in southern California.

    The Governor will be raising money to battle the unions and Democrats for this fall’s special election, but the Democrats will be in the stadium to protest.

    Here’s the e-mail from the CA Democratic Party:

    Game time: 7:05 p.m. Anaheim Angels vs. Oakland A's in Beautiful Angels Stadium Tell Arnold: "It's 1, 2, 3 Strikes - He's Out!" Gov. Schwarzenegger will attend an Anaheim Angels game with Arte Moreno and Jackie Autry on Tuesday, August 30, 2005. Don't you think the governor would love to see some hand made signs and banners showing our true feelings for him in the crowd and on the "Jumbo-Tron" TV screens. Whether you sit in the cheap seats or behind home plate . . . Bring a sign and your message for Governor Arnold to see. Invite your friends and co-workers to sit in sections with you and make creative statements against the coming special interests' Special Election and the flawed propositions Arnold supports. Come sit with friends and enjoy this interstate baseball game, a little beer, some peanuts... and giving Arnold a piece of your mind! And be sure to look for Anti-Arnold tailgate parties before the game in the parking lot. It will be Fantaaastic! Get your tickets at the link below: [link deleted]

    P.S. Might be a good idea to bring your signs in under your shirt, in a tote, etc

    Now that’s classy.

    As a Democrat, even I find this tactic a bit childish.

    Its probably just a response to the Rep/Dem Legislature Charity game held last week in Sacramento...
