Round One – East Sectionals 1 v. 16

The 2009 preposterous statement tournament (not to be confused with the Common Man Dan Cole’s Preposterous Statement Tournament) rolls on. Today we begin the matchups of the East. You can follow the tournament by using the 20 Times Around the Block Preposterous Statement bracket. Make your pick for a winner! A complete list of the statements can be found here.

Which statement is more preposterous?

1. Even President Obama holds the intolerant and bigoted view that marriage should be reserved for a man and a woman.–Emma Ruby-Sachs

16. On this Father’s Day, the American public should proudly note that our president takes his personal role as father (and spouse) as seriously as he does his job as father of the country.–Jennifer Weiss

How contenders view president Obama very much determines how preposterous their statements will be. The strategy of Emma Ruby-Sachs is to out-liberal him and bring him under the lame judgment of “intolerant” and “bigoted” if one doesn’t agree with her views. This is a daring strategy to take, but it might work. Jennifer Weiss is more vanilla taking a path that has already declared Obama to be pastor-in-cheif. Looks like Obama is our dad too.
