OMG: Obama did what?

Conservative media are abuzz with the fact that President Obama has filled out his bracket for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Some are talking heads and members of Congress are even aghast.

Aghast, you say, because he filled out a Men’s bracket and not a women’s bracket? No.

Aghast because he has an awful lot of safe picks, like three No 1 seeds in the Final 4, plus Memphis, a No. 2 seed, and thus is showing signs of being too careful in basketball as well as the economy? No.

Aghast because he didn’t pick a particular team favorite? Mostly no, although Duke’s Coach K thinks Obama should worry about the economy not the tournament..after the president had the nerve to pick Pitt over Duke in the Elite Eight.

Aghast because bracketology is a gateway bet to gambling addiction and nights spent on Texas Hold ‘em, Blackjack and the Slots? No, although the Christian Conservative movement hasn’t weighed in yet on that point.
