In what has become an annual ritual, President Obama filled out his NCAA Tournament Bracket for ESPN earlier this week. (Spoiler alert: He says nice things about Gonzaga, but doesn't pick them to win it all.)
Which prompted the second annual ritual of Republicans complaining that the president was spending time filling out his bracket than doing something more important. To read the Politico roundup, click here.
But it seems the GOP misses an important element of this: Obama is giving thousands — maybe even hundreds of thousands — of college basketball fans a chance to say they're smarter than him when it comes to picking winners in the tournament.
SEATTLE — president Obama's motorcade arrived in downtown about 2 pm where crowds lined the blocked off streets to snap photos and gay rights activists waved supporting signs.
Inside the paramount Theater a crowd that paid $1000 per ticket was being treated to music from dave Matthews and warmup Political speeches from local democrats like patty Murray while about 20 reporters and photographers waited downstairs near the restrooms for Obama's entrance.
OK, this is getting strange, in an “Art imitates life imitates art” kind of way. Doonesbury’s network correspondent Roland Hedley began tweeting on the Obama birth certificate “controversy” last night.
Here are his tweets, in reverse chron order:
Tomorrow: 9-part tweetage on Birther movement. Was POTUS really born in Hawaii, and if so, is Hawaii a real state? You decide.
FYI, no dog in fight, just report. Still historic if it turns out POTUS is our first Kenyan president.
Breaking rumor we’re working on: Hawaii cooked numbers on application for statehood. Still a colony? You’ll get to decide.
Car-pooled to Fight Club with Lou Dobbs, two Birthers and a Teabagger. Always good to get fresh perspectives.
The folks at JibJab have a new video on the Web, which may not be up to some of their best from the 2008 campaign, but it’s still pretty good.
