Place your bets! October Madness is on!

Wimblehack! Matt Taibbi of the NY Press hosts a four-week tournament to crown the worst political journalist in America. Check the bracket, and place your bets. Bob Woodward looks tough to beat (he "says, with pride, [that] . . . Bush in Plan of Attack either comes across as a 'forceful, decisive leader' or 'shows he does not know what he is doing,' depending on your point of view"), Brian Mooney of the Boston Globe has a winning strategy ("Any reporter who files a 'nation bitterly divided' or a 'most fiercely contested election in history' piece is going to advance automatically. When 100 million people don't vote, the nation is not bitterly divided. The nation mostly doesn't give a shit.") but my money says there's no way anyone's stopping Elizabeth Bumiller. (Via Atrios, but should be safe for Republicans, too.)
