MCCAIN MARCH MADNESS

March 19, 2008

C’mon!

Every year John McCain runs a bracket contest on his website. He even gives away prizes.

You can win a lovely McCain fleece:

Or this stylish hat:

All by making college basketball picks on Senator McCain’s website.

This is the same Senator McCain who once supported a government ban on college sports betting. Even in Las Vegas.

If anybody else did this they would be sued and served a cease and desist by the NCAA and CBS.

This year, not only does Senator McCain get to benefit POLITICALLY off the backs of amateur college athletes, but he can also benefit FINANCIALLY as well. After all, he’s now running for president so he can actually use this contest to solicit campaign contributions.

So much for campaign finance reform!

I would like ANYONE to look at the ad below and explain to me how John McCain is allowed to get away with this.

This is NOT a Republican or Democrat issue. It’s right and wrong. In this instance, McCain is being a hypocrite.

Send me your comments.

MASS MURDER ‘FUN FACTS’

March 19, 2008

With the NCAA College Basketball Tournament soon to tip off, it sometimes feels like we’re being beseiged with information about all 65 teams.

I’m sure it’s hard to come up with something interesting on every single team in the tournament. The website The Realests, though, got a nice shot in on the NY Daily News. They noticed that the paper did a “Fun Facts” blurb on all 65 teams in the tournament.

And they spotted this “Fun Fact” about San Diego:

FUN FACT: Power forward Rob Jones, a 6-5, 230-pound freshman, turned down football offers from such traditional powers as Notre Dame, Miami and Oregon to pursue a basketball career. He is the grandson of Jim Jones, the leader of the Jonestown jungle compound where more than 900 people were killed in 1978 in a mass murder/suicide.

Geeze, I guess some facts are more “fun” than others.

I don’t know how the deaths of 900 people makes the “fun facts” list. But, I guess nobody died and made me newspaper editor.
