http://twitter.com/#!/DavidLimbaugh/status/445402208364806144

The NCAA Tournament match-ups were announced Sunday evening, and President Obama will no doubt be filling out his brackets very soon as he does every year.

David Limbaugh passed along a bracket Obama will definitely not fill out:

Ha! The entirety of Congress should be forced to fill that out.

There’s even room at the lower right for a few more “phony scandals” that might arise (larger version here).

[Update]

Here’s the new 2014 “Obama Scandal Bracket” created by Jon Gabriel and posted at Ricochet. The version featured in David Limbaugh’s tweet was posted in 2013.

‘You’ve set the stage for a new Holocaust’: David Draiman unloads on lib media

http://twitter.com/#!/Kudzu81/status/498097742934441984

In July, Disturbed and Device vocalist David Draiman told “the mainstream media, anti-Semites, propagandists, and attackers of Israel” he’d “had about enough of your bullsh*t.” In a scorching rant, Draiman ripped the media again for fueling a stomach-turning “wave of anti-Semitism.”

Jim Geraghty reminds NYT of headline they can re-use for Jill Abramson story

http://twitter.com/#!/jimgeraghty/status/466723834394320896

Jill Abramson is out as executive editor of the New York Times. The New Yorker reported that one of Abramson’s conflicts with top brass at the paper started after she discovered that her pay and benefits were “considerably less” than her male predecessor.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty helped save the Times’ headline writers some extra work if they decide to do a story:

Perfect!

‘Transparency’: ‘Media lockdown’ at Biden event in Chicago

http://twitter.com/#!/natashakorecki/status/504003995518898176

Some reporters seem like they’re getting a little tired of getting the run-around from the most transparent administration in history.

They can’t have people like that participating. That could create a breach in the narrative.

http://twitter.com/#!/natashakorecki/status/504029164244971522

Transparency.

Vice President Joe Biden guests on ‘Late Night’; Seth Meyers bombs

http://twitter.com/#!/jpodhoretz/status/438188744387358720

He’s vice president, not president, so being second in line is just part of the job. Vice President Joe Biden was the second guest on the inaugural broadcast of “Late Night with Seth Meyers” late Monday night.

Judging from Twitter reaction, there’s only one thing worse than being the second guest on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and that’s being the host of “Late Night with Seth Myers.”

‘Major SNAFU’: Water leak floods red carpet at Golden Globes [pics]

A broken water pipe at the Beverly Hilton prior to the start of the Golden Globe Awards has put a damper on the red carpet:

‘I hate my life’: Josh Earnest’s face betrays his inner turmoil [photos]

http://twitter.com/#!/wkamaubell/status/517404312041824256

It can’t be easy being Josh Earnest these days. He’s got a lot of crap to explain.

It’s part of his job to look calm even when it’s all hit the fan, and bless his heart for trying, but he’s not fooling anyone anymore:

‘Still bitter after 13 years’: Politico’s Roger Simon has a sad over Bush v. Gore

Hard to believe it’s been 13 years, but what can we say? Time flies:

http://twitter.com/#!/BeschlossDC/status/411172677248774144

Apparently time doesn’t heal all wounds. Not for Politico’s Roger Simon, anyway:

http://twitter.com/#!/politicoroger/status/411173313105240064

Awww … he and The Nation’s Ari Berman can have a good cry about it:

http://twitter.com/#!/AriBerman/status/411154928481337344

Really, guys?

http://twitter.com/#!/CatsPolitics/status/411179580817698816

Interesting that the same people telling us to “get over” things like Benghazi and Obamacare are still hung up on the 2000 election.

Heh.

Apparently, according to one media outlet, he also switched parties:

Well, yes. Technically it is. But:

Snort.

Being misidentified as a Democrat has got to suck, but maybe in this case, there’s a silver lining:

Ha! There you go!
