    Mitt Romney is the Duke of GOP Presidential Baracketology.

    According to the discussion on Morning Joe about the new Time Magazine cover. This is not intended to be a prohibited PP post, but merely another example of the national perception of Duke basketball as a perennial favorite.

    Donald Trump...?

    Shouldn't Carolina be Mike Huckabee? Maryland is definitely Sarah Palin (because of the Alaska connection).

    That's pretty amusing as an analogy, and it seems to work.

    Hope no one rots their brain thinking about this.

    So who is John Edwards? Calipari or Calhoun!?

    Was that what they said? There are other possible connotations, though I suppose we shouldn't speculate here.

    Neither, they both cheated and got away with it. Or at least they kept their jobs.
    Mmmm, BBQ!

    T-Paw is like Butler. Nice story, hard to dislike, but ultimately playing for second.

    There are probably some quotes from the Pitino trial that could apply to Johnny Edwards, so let's go with Slick "15 seconds" Rick.

    Pitino - check the hair and lifestyle mistakes.

    Feel free to connotate and speculate as you please, but the conversation was not rocket science.

    The cover title is Barackotology and it has some of the GOP candidates on two sides of a bracket. The inference is obvious. Joe Scarborough asked some of the guests to fill out their bracket. John Heilemann of New York Magazine writes Duke into the champion box instead of one of his two finalists. Joe and others takes up the analogy of Mitt, like Duke, as everyone's front runner.

    Jay Bilas is picking Huntsman. Go figure.
