The staff of Progress Now has released the list and tournament seeding of the sixteen most outrageous, radical, out of touch right-wingers who over the past year have proven that, for one reason or another, they belong in this year’s Not-So-Sweet 16. The competition is stiff this year; from preliminary radical right-wing powerhouse and one seed Michele Bachmann from Minnesota, who managed to earn two “Four Pinocchio” ratings from the Washington Post fact-checkers and a Pants on Fire rating from PolitiFact, to the Cinderella story of the 11th seeded Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, who compared state employees and Iowans without health insurance to people needing to be cut off at an open bar during a wedding, this year’s tournament is anyone’s to win.
Below each right-winger quote is a place to like, tweet, or plus the comment you think deserves to go to the next round. Share this on your social network of choice and we will tally the results at the end of each round to see who advances. Besure to check back at the end of every round of the real-life Basketball tournment to see who advances in March Badness!

Because you just have to close your eyes.” Corbett didn’t address how a woman can ignore the probe inside her.
