Open Thread – The Stupid Politician Edition

Open Thread: Little League World Series Edition

Congratulations to the South Korean and Chicago little league teams for advancing to the finals game.  The game is tomorrow at 3pm U.S. Eastern Time on ABC.  Chicago beat Nevada to get to the title game and Korea beat Japan (twice).

Good luck to both teams!
