It's Wimblehack, the game of competing journalistic banalities during Election 2004! See the brackets here. How is it possible that no one thought of this before? An idea whose time is long overdue.

My money's on a Final Four of Elisabeth Bumiller, Jodi Wilgoren, and -- he's not mentioned this time but surely will make an appearance next week -- Adam Nagourney. I am partial to (hating) the Times, I guess. The fourth ... let me chew on it awhile.

Let the Hack games begin!

(Tip of the hat to Atrios)

UPDATE: Sweet Baby Jesus in His Crib, how could I forget the stupendously hacktacular, the positively hacktabulous, the unwaveringly hackariffic Kit "Katherine Q." Seelye?? We might have a winner, y'all!
