I always fill out an NCAA Tournament bracket. Sometimes for fun, sometimes for sport, but I always do. Then again I don’t have the kind of job where I’m spending trillions of dollars in other people’s money, trying to manage a possible Iranian nuclear crisis with Israel waiting in the wings to take action, a Syrian uprising being suppressed by a totalitarian regime, a complete and total takeover of the American economy by the government with a healthcare law that was birthed right out of the mind of Karl Marx, and of course on the days when I’m not real busy, I’d launch an all out assault on religious freedom. I don’t have a job like that, and since I don’t, I filled out a bracket.
Barack Obama on the other hand does have that job, with a countless number of other responsibilities as well that I didn’t list. And despite the fact that he has weathered the accusations in the past of being an aloof President who at times doesn’t take his job seriously enough, he managed to fill out his NCAA bracket with the breathless adoration of the ESPN hacks. Again.
It’ll be nice to once again have a President of the United States who actually acts like the President of the United States. You know, a President with higher priorities than hoping the Chicago Bulls eventually make a White House visit.
For the record Obama picked Kentucky, North Carolina, Missouri, and Ohio State to go to the Final Four. If you care.
