Well, this is kind of a useless day. One more weekday of sitting around speculating before the actual election. I’m not sure what to do or even what to talk about as we’ve been over it all so much. The polls seem to be leaning Obama right now, but they also tend to have these ridiculous partisan makeups where we’re to believe Obama increased the number of Dems from 2008 over his painful first term. So who knows what will happen.
Still, I have to make a prediction because I’m sort of like a pundit. And people look up to me. And some dogs, too. Cats mainly ignore me, though.
Anyway, here’s my prediction:
Obama wins, and not as narrowly as people were thinking. All the swing states go his way and at least one surprise state no one was looking at. And the Democrats hold the Senate and even gain one seat. And in the biggest surprise, the Democrats retake the House. The left are absolutely thrilled with the result and have a huge party. And all the big celebrities are there like Tom Hanks and Katy Perry and… wait? Is that Ted Kennedy? Somehow he’s still alive and spiking the punch! It’s a new brighter future for progressives!
And then they wake with a knock at the door. Sleepy, they shuffle to answer it and standing outside is President Romney with his new task force going door to door declaring ownership of women’s uteruses. Obama’s reelection win was all just a dream! And now the real nightmare begins!
So what’s your prediction?
