The Tournament of Gimmicks Barak-otology

21 03 2010

When word got out that the Tournament of Gimmicks was about to unfold, I contacted the White House to see if the President would be interested in filling out a bracket much like he does with the March Madness tourney every year.

I was amazed when they said yes.

Fresh off the disappointment of a Kansas loss, President Obama was excited at the opportunity for vindication elsewhere.  I was flown to the White House where we took a quick photo of him filling out a bracket, and then he quickly scrawled out his picks for the ToG on a pre-printed bracket and handed them over.  I present them here untouched:

Old habits die hard, huh Mr. President?

Voting for Round 1 starts tomorrow…
