Senate Candidate George "Macaca" Allen Busts His Own Bracket For Local Votes

That damned West region. Norfolk State really messed things up for most of us, but Virginia Senate candidate George Allen didn't need any help. He made a mess of things all by himself. After what must have been a lot of tossing and turning, Allen eventually picked Norfolk State—presumably upon learning that Norfolk State was in Virginia—creating a Sophie's Choice of a pick in the Round of 32. Norfolk State, or Virginia? No worries, just reanimate the corpse of Missouri.

His bracket (click to enlarge) is littered with similar gaffes, including a Davidson upset over Louisville, but Louisville advancing to take on Michigan State. This appears to be a habit of his, as Allen has a history of making head-scratching picks (Davidson again!) for political capital.
