They have defeated the loathsome New York Yankees (gee, can ya might think I'm a Red Sox fan or something :) ) and are advancing to their first World Series appearance ever.
As much as I don't like mixing baseball and politics, their victory brings to mind a question (pointed out by a FB friend) -
George W. Bush ran the Texas Rangers for 5 years, from 1989 until 1994, and it's taken the Rangers 16 years to right their ship. And after that 16 years, people all over Texas and the country are rejoicing.
Yet Bush ran the entire country for *8* years (60% longer) and messed up everything, and people are livid that Barack Obama hasn't fixed everything in less than 2 years (87% less time).
What's up with that?
