As the nation girds itself for college basketball's "March Madness," Credo, the long-distance phone company that raises money for lefty groups/causes, has dialed up its own version of bracket fever. It's assembled a bracket of its own "Sinister Sixteen" to compete in its second "Bracket of Evil."
Tough choices abound. Glenn Beck is pitted against Rush Limbaugh. Monsanto squares off against Goldman Sachs. Big Coal is matched with Blackwater, which is trying to cover its tracks under the corporate name Xe Services.
Credo believes it's a "target-rich environment for political activism."
There are questionable choices. Sarah Palin, for instance, is lumped into the "crazies" category with Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. If Alaska's former governor is crazy, she's crazy like a fox.
Also, Rahm the "Dealmaker" Emanuel should not be in the same league as Joe "Switcheroo" Lieberman.
Credo describes "evil" as a danger that poses a threat to progressive values. It will announce first-round winners in six days.
One can only wonder what liberals would be candidates for a "bracket of evil" put together by Liz Cheney's Keep America Safe.
