Cheers for Republicans to remember

The Other McCain got a nice long link at Instapundit today. I guess he doesn't suck anymore.
Somehow, my thoughts went back to Baltimore's ice hockey team 30 years ago. It was the low minors, and the fans wanted players who would hit.
Among the season-ticket holding superfans, they would chant "Be aggressive, be aggressive, B-E A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E." They would chant in falsetto voice, or low and slow. But they wanted the team to be aggressive.
When I moved to Bluefield, West Virginia and watched the Orioles' rookie team, one fans would always yell "Challenge the hitter." As a former pitcher, he knew you had to be aggressive on the mound.
You don't win in ice hockey or baseball by letting the opposition dictate the flow of the game. You hit back, attack his weaknesses and try to stay on offense.
Let them hurl their insults. We'll whack them right back.
