    It’s Simple! Everybody starts in the middle, and the winners end up as far apart as possible!

  • saka@loc.gov

    I think we can work this out so nobody wins!

  • barbara.paine@att.net

    As you can see. It’s Reid vs. Bohener. Aaand, you all know, who’ll get the trophy.

  • barbara.paine@att.net

    Well, you know it will be Reid and Boehner. Aaand, that Reid will win the trophy.

    Our tournament starts with two proposals. Everyone adds in their special intersts and influence to end in 64 brackets of gridlock. Nobody wins, but it truly fits the designation of madness.

    So it may look backwards to you BUT it all makes perfect sense to me!

    1st you pick the power conferences (Defense, Ways & Means) and who ranks highest in the (opinion) polls. Then you find out who is strongest at the point (blame, that is). After that it is all about picking the ones most prone to getting upset. But in the end it still ends up a mess and you want to throw it out by day 2.
