He's Winning, He's Winning, He's Winning

George Washington knocked Jack Ryan down like a cherry tree.
Washington's trek to the Rushmore Four has been smooth sailing; way easier than crossing the Delaware.

Washington vs. Ryan
George Washington     19 (67.9%)
Jack Ryan 9  (32.1%)

However, hhis marks the first time that Washington received less than 90% of the vote. It could be a sign of things to come for Washington. It will be an uphill battle for him.

This week's numbers were eerily similar to last week's result, which had Jackson over Whitmore 20-9. However, unlike last week, all was quiet on the commentariat front this time around. That means we're forced to sift through our Tweets.
We share this because it leads to a discussion question: If Ryan loses points because he was once portrayed by Ben Affleck, would being portrayed by Chris Pine help or hurt him? We ask because this is supposedly happening.

Adding to the list of other characters like Han Solo, Indiana Jones and Jack Donaghy, would having Captain Kirk on his side in the Arena help Ryan?
Or, at least, it was announced over two years ago. After all of this time, there still seems to be no sign of this actually happening, so we guess it doesn't really matter.

Washington will meet Andrew Jackson in the first Rushmore Four match, March 19. The winner of that will obviously advance to the Championship. The loser will get another chance at a victory and try for 3rd place. Next week, Barack Obama will meet Josiah "Jed" Bartlet.
