Time now for the 2009 preposterous statement tournament (not to be confused with the Common Man Dan Cole’s Preposterous Statement Tournament). 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.
The first round is all done, and the second round of prepostersous statement madness rolls on!
Which statement is more preposterous?
In this week’s town hall meetings, President Obama demonstrated an important aspect of his office: Pastor-in-Chief.–Diana Butler Bass
“The symbolism of the delay suggested that Obama intends to continue to poach constituencies that were once reliably Republican.”– E.J. Dionne praising, as an act of bipartisan outreach, the one-day delay of Obama’s executive order to end the ban on funding abortions abroad.
Both Diana Butler Bass and E.J. Dionne won their first round matchups handily as their unmitigated optimism in the most mundane actions taken by president Obama carried them easily to victory. But the glass slipper can only fit for one of them, and you get to decide!
