Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

I found this as I was cleaning up my pictures file.

It's a tongue-in-cheek bracket for the GOP nominating process.

What's interesting is how prescient it turned out to be.

The top left - if you can't read it - contains the RINOs (or not crazy people).  Romney is the #1 seed.

Top right gives us the South.  Gingrich come in at the #2 seed.  (This was before Rick Perry even tossed his hat into the ring and then stepped on it.)

Bottom left: Wackos.  Herman Cain was the #1 seed, but here comes Ron Paul with the 2 seed.

And finally, guess who the #2 seed is from the Crazies Regional?  Frothy Mixture himself.

Keep in mind that three of the #1 seeds got knocked out early (Trump, Huckabee and Caribou Barbie) and you basically have all the remaining top seeds advancing to the Final Four From Hell.
