(Newser) – The National Republican Congressional Committee is out to find America's Worst Liberal with, what else, a set of March Madness-style brackets, reports the Hill. Your No. 1 seeds are President Obama (in the "Nanny Staters" camp), Joe Biden ("Obama Mouthpieces"), Nancy Pelosi ("Lefty Lapdogs"), and Eric Holder ("Backroom Dealers"). The winner gets an autographed basketball from Newt Gingrich. If that's a little partisan for your taste, Roll Call takes the NCAA bracket and replaces the school with the House member that represents it. For the record, the GOP has three of four No. 1 seeds.

So what constitutes the worst? The one that makes the most sense? The one that uses the most facts in their argument? The one that spends the most money? The one that defends the civil rights of individuals? So funny that the worst put downs they can think of are the things that they absolutely personify: Nanny state- they will defend their "right" ruin other people's lives but they still want the government up your ass (or your vagina); Mouthpieces- the impenetrable wall of Congressional Republicans tow the line worse than anyone; LapDogs: Holy crap, lapdogs for the rich and the lobbyists worse than anyone ever, Backroom Dealers: The worst of the worst due to their tin ear for the public mainstream and working people. It seems that the worst liberal is the one that wins the argument. Sorry Newt. You are absolutely the worst. Hands down. And by your own definition, a liberal.

Good to see they are taking a mature approach to politics and are coming up with sane solutions for the country's problems. This intellectual exercise certainly makes them look like a serious alternative govt.
