2013 Daily Kos Republican March to Madness Tourney Teabaggers Region: First round results
Full tournament bracket and results here.
Welcome to day one of second round action in the Teabaggers region: Today we start picking the Insane 16. You can cast your votes for today's matchups from this page or follow the direct links in the game summaries below.

You're voting for whomever you think is the best poster-child for Republican craziness, however you define it. That doesn't necessarily mean mean you have to pick the person who's crazier. For example, you might think Herman Cain is more off his rocker than Jim DeMint, but that Jim DeMint is a better poster-child because he's got more clout in the GOP and conservative movement than Cain. It's entirely up to you.

With that out of the way, here are the matchups:

Remember, you can vote from a single page or follow the individual links above. As with yesterday, you've got until about 8:30 AM ET on Sunday to cast your ballot.

You can see the full tournament bracket as well as yesterday's results here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I've got go with crazy over mean and that gives me Cruz and Bachmann. Sorry, Joe, but your just an asshole not a crazy asshole.

    You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?

    #1 - Cruz
    Fast tracking to teabagger royalty and DeMint gave up his clout.
    #2 - Arpaio
    A Very Special Sort of Slimy and Bachmann's fading away.

    You show a little grit and you lands in jail.
