Jindal upset in 'political March madness'

by Nathan Stubbs

Maybe it was Jindal’s disastrous Republican response to President Obama’s Congressional address. Maybe it’s just interloping liberal National Public Radio listeners. Either way, Jindal was knocked out of NPR’s political March Madness this week. A 16-seed tournament bracket for the 2012 Republican presidential primary, Jindal entered the field as a strong No. 2 seed. But NPR voters took Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a No. 4 seed, over Jindal in this week’s second round of match ups. Jindal wasn’t the only top seed to fall. The bracket's two No. 1 seeds, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney, also went down. Sweet 16 winners are announced tomorrow.
