Its no secret that syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks are avid baseball fans, so you know we had to talk about the topsy-turvy night that was Wildcard Wednesday. It was such an exceptional night of baseball that the NewsHour even did a segment on it.That took care of the politics of sport.

But before that, on the sport of politics front, we spoke about the right of the U.S. government to kill cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen, and what, if anything, the discontent in the Occupy Wall Street movement means politically considering the “mad as hell and not going to take it anymore” sentiment prevalent against Washington and Wall Street. Take a look and listen, and let us know what you think.
