Presidential March Madness

Here is a neat site that puts 64 GOP presidential hopefuls - some more presidential, some more hopeful - into brackets, then lets voters advance their “candidates” through the tournament. (I think you can click on the picture for a larger, more legible view.)

In second-round action this week (vote March 24th and 25th), Senator Lindsey Graham takes on Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas, who ambled past Mark Sanford over the weekend in their first-round contest.

First-round action isn’t quite over yet. In the East bracket, John McCain faces formidable opposition in the form of Idaho Governor (and let’s face it, household name) Dirk Kempthorne. Also, Liddy Dole faces her first non-Viagra induced Boehner in decades. Vote on Monday and Tuesday for those match-ups and others.

What a cool idea this is! haha Maybe we can change our election process to this! Might be more exciting than the Bball March Madness. Good post!

Notice the huge first round upset where Mike Pence (R-IN) defeated #1 seed Bill Frist.

I'm telling you, Pence is golden...

So if the Governator had of advaced would we now be in a some costitutioal crisis akin to technical foul? Guess they had to stretch to fill the brackets.
