My Predictions for the 2006 Mid Term Elections

Hello Thinkers,

I've been a bit busy, but cannot let the mid term elections go without adding my own personal clairvoyance - a la Shirley Maclaine. So here they are - my fearless predictions for this Tuesday night and beyond!


(PS. And don't forget to vote! But only if you agree with me!)

PREDICTION 1: Despite the gleeful headlines from the NY Times heralding Democrat seizure of both the US House and Senate, Republicans will not lose control of either. I have always felt there was a 10% rule when reading coverage of pending elections from the Lame-Steam Media. If "the polls" say race is neck-and-neck, the Republican wins by roughly 10%. If "the polls" say the Democrat has a non-trivial lead, the race is really tight. If "the polls" say the Republican has a huge lead going into the election, the media buries the story and reports heavily on the latest social crisis de jour ripping at our nation's very fabric.

PREDICTION 2: Despite the Republicans keeping the House and Senate, the NY Times will still report November 7th, 2006 as a significant Republican loss.

PREDICTION 3: Nancy Pelosi will not blink.

PREDICTION 4: No later than Wednesday morning, Howard Dean will cover his ass by making vague references to Kerry's "botched joke" as the reason for his party's failure to make huge political advances this year.

PREDICTION 5: Katie Couric will still be the least viewed "news anchor" of the big 3 networks on election night. After a major CBS focus group convenes to address the problem, she will add a house plant (or a kitten) to her news desk as a guaranteed way to appeal to a wider viewing audience.

PREDICTION 6: Chris Matthews will be rushed to the nearest hospital with heart palpitations.

PREDICTION 7: Despite supporting in state tuition rates and drivers licenses for illegal aliens, MA gubernatorial candidate Deval Patrick will win the states corner office - but by a much smaller margin than "the polls" indicate (5% or less - see the 10% rule from PREDICTION 1 above). Massachusetts will continue uncontested as the political laughing stock of the nation with a liberal Democrat State House, Senate and Governor. God help us.

PREDICTION 8: Electronic voting machines will be blamed for 'irregularities' in minority communities only. Jesse Jackson issue a press release claiming proof of vote tampering and will call out for the electoral college to be replaced in 2008 with a CNN/Gallup poll of likely voters in Berkley, CA.

PREDICTION 9: Ned Lamont will lose resoundingly as Connecticut Republicans give the nod almost exclusively to Joe Lieberman. Sporadic laughter will be heard from the voting booths in the Consitution State.

PREDICTION 10: Alot of drinking will be done in Hyannis on Tuesday night.

**BONUS PREDITION***: Terrorists around the world will emphatically support all Democrats for elected office in 2006. Oh wait, that's already happened:

JERUSALEM – Everybody has an opinion about next Tuesday's midterm congressional election in the U.S. – including senior terrorist leaders interviewed by WND who say they hope Americans sweep the Democrats into power because of the party's position on withdrawing from Iraq, a move, as they see it, that ensures victory for the worldwide Islamic resistance.

The terrorists told WorldNetDaily an electoral win for the Democrats would prove to them Americans are "tired."
They rejected statements from some prominent Democrats in the U.S. that a withdrawal from Iraq would end the insurgency, explaining an evacuation would prove resistance works and would compel jihadists to continue fighting until America is destroyed.
"Of course Americans should vote Democrat," Jihad Jaara, a senior member of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group and the infamous leader of the 2002 siege of Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, told WND.
