The phrase gained notoriety on the football field this fall. Will it apply to our elections too?
I was riding my bike past a pre-school this week. Kids were playing on the playground. One six year old boy raises his hands and yells, "The ruling on the field stands!" I got a great chuckle out of that.
It was a reference, here in Wisconsin, to the infamous Packers-Seattle football game that brought the real refs back last month.
But with elections so tight, and the nation still divided 50-50, will it become the political phrase of the year as well?
