Pick on someone yer own size!

Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy told the Joker that he's not afraid of thugs. Turns out, Senatory Leahy isn't afraid of thugs who want to stop kids from playing baseball either.

Republic representative Lincoln Diaz-Balart has expressed "serious reservations" about a group of Vermont and New Hampshire kids going to play some youth baseball in Cuba. Diaz-Balart even convened a session of the Cuba Democracy Caucus to discuss the matter. Leahy's reaction? Pick on someone your own size.

"I don't like the idea of the government telling ordinary Americans, let alone Little Leaguers, where and when they can travel," Leahy said. "If the president can go to China at taxpayers' expense, these kids ought to be able to go on a privately paid trip to Cuba to play some baseball."

Well done, Senator, well done.
