Screenshot from the #9 seed, which squares off today against the #24 seed
So it's that time of year, and we've got a job to do: Selecting the "best" Fox News moment of 2013. The task begins today, and it will run for the next two weeks, taking only Christmas and New Year's Day off, and the good news is that it will be really easy to participate: This is going to be run tournament style, with 24 different moments (seeded from top to bottom) facing off against each other in elimination matches, so all you have to do is vote between two choices and pick whichever one you think is crazier. Whichever moment wins advances to the next round.

On Monday and Tuesday, we'll be working through the first round, and you'll have until Wednesday (for the Monday matches) and Thursday (for the Tuesday ones) to cast your votes.

With that out of the way, the first matchup squares off a recent moment from Fox in which they mused about why President Obama hasn't signed up for Obamacare (hint: because he's president) and a moment from earlier in the year when they came up with a fabulous explanation for having plagiarized Politico. Vote for the winner below!

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.
