March Madness? Obama Picks Down In Flames
SI.com ^ | 3/27/11 | AP

In what can be called the greatest political risk of his brief career, President Obama went way out on a limb of a very weak tree and picked all Number 1 seeds to reach the Final 4. Well, a very tenacious VCU Rams team, representing the hopes and dreams of Middle America, knocked off Obama's last hope, the Kansas Jayhawks, to reach the Final 4, rendering Obama's bracket as worthless as Hope and Change itself.

When reached for a comment, the President's spokesman, Jay Karney, blamed former President Bush for swapping the seeding numbers, and that the ESPN bracketologist acted "studidly" in recording and broadcasting the President's picks.


TOPICS: News/Current Events; Political Humor/Cartoons
KEYWORDS: curse; final4; losers; obama; satire

Here are The President's picks.

In a related story, the President has announced that he expects Col. Ghaddafi, Hugo Chavez, Richard Trumpka and George Soros all to remain in power this year.

Pathetic. Just pathetic. :(

How can you possibly have a name like “varina davis” and not be for VCU?

He did in my Stillerz in the Super Bowl; and then the Panthers.

Now Duke, OSU, and Kansas know the Curse of Buh-Rock.

Now...a shameless blog shout out (my little musings on Barracketology):
