Bryce Harper + outfield wall = Bipartisanship

May 14, 2013

All it took was Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper running into an outfield wall in pursuit of a fly ball on Monday night to bridge the partisan gap in D.C.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) took to the floor of the chamber to express his admiration and concern for Harper, himself a Las Vegas native. That sentiment was echoed by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who added: "This is one thing leaders on both sides agree on. We are hoping Harper has a speedy recovery."

Bryce Harper. A uniter, not a divider. (Also, he appears to be just fine -- aside from 11 stitches in his chin and some bruises.)
