Blurb: A week ago today I filled out my March Madness bracket, today I filled out my nerd bracket.
Backstory: For those of you who don't know me, I love things that are nerdy. There's just something about turning things that involve sports into nerd knowledge that I love. For example I actually played fantasy congress for one season, yes I said congress not football.
That's why it's no surprise that I filled out a bracket for Democrats vs. Dictators. On one side there are the world's democratically elected leaders and on the other the world's most famous dictators. I was filled with glee when I found this bracket and I'm pretty excited to see who comes out on top.
I obviously chose Obama because it's like voting against Ohio State, I can't do it. This is a little disappointing because I have a serious girl crush on Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard and she has to be beat by the president in the third round. On the dictators side I went with a very vintage pick, Russian President Vladamir Putin. What can I say, no one does iron fist like the Russians. So my bracket is a cold war showdown with American coming out on top. USA! USA! USA!
