Something stupid from NPR to tide you over until tonight’s games. Final Four picks: I’ve got Mitt crushing Ron Paul and surviving a gutty performance by a game Jon Huntsman in the regional final; Sanford blowing out Whitman and winning a nailbiter against superfrosh Bobby Jindal; Pawlenty squeaking through in the “none of these other guys could ever get elected” region; and Jeb shocking Palin, Laettner-style, with a buzzer-beater to cut down the nets. You can vote at the link, but there’s little point. The Paulnuts have already been there and made their mark.

Update: Belated exit question: Is Sanford the only candidate with a realistic chance of beating The One in 2012? Lately I’ve started to think so.
