An ESPN News Release
In a shocking turn of events, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reversed the results of the second round Kansas vs. Northern Iowa NCAA tournament game by deeming the Jayhawks to have passed to the next round.
“I like the procedure, because you don’t have to win the game,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi was reacting to Northern Iowa’s upset of the number one seed overall Kansas, which President Obama had picked to win March Madness.
“There will be no busted Barack-ets this year,” Pelosi said, as she made her way out of the Capital en route to a plastic surgery appointment.
“This kind of thing helps Barack get on with his legislative strategy when the Republican Party of No is just trying to defeat him and win the pick em game.”
Sen. Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, said that he was going to filibuster Kansas’ win.=
