Ron Paul Gets Inducted Into Congressional Baseball Hall Of Fame, Wears Hideous Jersey

We can thank Meredith Shiner, of the Capitol Hill paper of record—Roll Call, for this snapshot of bold decision maker Ron Paul.

Paul was on hand to throw the ceremonial first pitch at this year's Congressional baseball game. He was also inducted into the Hall of Fame for reportedly being the first person to hit a home run (over the wall) in a Congressional game. He chose to honor the moment by wearing the same uniform he wore on that fateful day in 1979.


His son, Rand Paul, a Republican Senator out of Kentucky, said of his father's wardrobe "Reagan said, 'Paint in bold colors, not pastels.'" So, there you have it. Reagan is still being used to justify politicians' terrible decisions.
