Washington Nationals and Bush: second term problems?

The Washington Nationals
were one of the biggest surprises
of the first half of the 2005 baseball season. On July 3, the team formerly known as the Expos
had a 50-31 record.
Everybody in DC was feeling good, especially the Republicans. Not only did Washington have a baseball team for the first time in decades, but that surprisingly good baseball team also featured a home uniform
that had a red cap with a "w" on the front. As a result, some Republicans eagerly adopted
the cap as a symbol of their party and their president.
The second half of the Nationals' season has mirrored Bush's second term, however. Just like Bush has made missteps on Social Security and lost the battle to make his judicial nominees filibuster-proof, the second half of the Nationals season has been filled with miscues, too. After this afternoon's loss to the Braves
, the Nationals have a 5-16 record over the past three weeks. Does this spell bad news for John Roberts?
