Ike Emerges Liked

Dwight D. Eisenhower made Bill Clinton look like Adlai Stevenson in the Presidential Gladiatorial Arena™ this week.
Though unlike Stevenson, Clinton will be spared from having to meet Eisenhower again.

Bill Clinton   17 (33.3%)

We had a relatively high turnout this week, tying Reagan vs. Hayes for third-most votes in a week. However, the race came nowhere close to needing a tiebreaker. Even if it did, Ike had the solid support of the commentariat on his side. Leading the pack — both chronologically and, in our opinion, quality of comment:
While brilliant, we'd hate to nitpick and point out that Eisenhower, like all officers during World War II were in the older Lost Generation. However, we'll chalk this slight error up to madness from having ingested iocane powder.

And before you ask: yes, we're pretty sure the person Ike fought was Bill Clinton, and not his look-alike, Geroge.

Eisenhower is scheduled to return to the Round of 16 and face Andrew Jackson Dec. 26. We have to say that we're generally excited about this matchup. Get it? Because they were generals. HEYO!


Join us next week when James Monroe takes on Kang from The Simpsons.

    Don't get your unmentionables in a bunch, gentlemen; that nit has already been picked by yours truly.

    Show me an "edit comment" function, and I'll show you "with a *leader* of the Greatest Generation"...mere minutes after the original was posted.

    In sum, neener.
