Rick Santorum and Dick Cheney
It's finally underway: The semi-final round of the 2013 Republican March to Madness has begun. The first matchup of the day is #1 seed Rush Limbaugh from the Right-wing Media Region vs. #4 seed Michele Bachmann from the Teabaggers Region. Voting is happening right now—you can cast your ballot here, if you dare vote on a ballot featuring Limbaugh and Bachmann as your only two choices.

Our second Freakshow Four matchup features #1 seed Rick Santorum from the Theocons Region vs. #4 seed Dick Cheney from the GOP Establishment Region. Santorum romped to success by knocking off Pat Robertson, James Inhofe, Virginia Foxx and Bill Donohue. Cheney got here by mowing down Wayne LaPierre, Marco Rubio, Grover Norquist and John McCain.

Now it's Santorum vs. Cheney and the mystery couldn't be bigger. Will Santorum edge out a victory thanks to Cheney's endorsement of marriage equality? Or will Cheney finally reap the rewards of having lied the country into a decade-long war in Iraq? And whichever moonbat wins, will they face Bachmann or Limbaugh in the championship round?

Remember, you're voting for the poster-child of Republican craziness. This isn't some sort of sick prank to make you decide whether you'd rather be roommates with Dick Cheney or Rick Santorum. Voting in this matchup starts now and lasts until Monday morning, when we'll announce the two finalists. The full tournament recap is here and with just three matchups remaining, it's your call to decide who moves on.

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.
