The nice thing about John McCain is that he often says it like it is. And so while he may have just made a surprise visit to Iraq over the weekend, the Senator’s true interests came out as well. He’s launched a March Madness bracket contest on his official website.
Those willing to dish out their contact info and in turn become bombarded by what will surely be lots and lots of campaign emails will get the opportunity to face off against McCain. He won’t make his choices public until right at the deadline, but somehow a deep tournament run from Arizona wouldn’t be the most surprising thing in the world.
And should you be one of the top winners, you’ll be the lucky recipient of McCain swag! You didn’t think there was money involved, did you? Whether you win or lose, do what the campaign wants you to do. Talk up Johnny Mac!
“While you’re watching the games with your friends or lamenting your busted bracket over the water cooler, don’t forget to tell your friends about your support for John McCain,” urged the e-mail.Indeed. As soon as Western Kentucky defeats Drake, hide your embarrassment by talking up your bracket sponsor.
