What Year Is It?

Q: What do all these election years have in common? (None of them have been in my kitchen.) No really.


1996

2002

2004

2006

A: All of them I can distinctly remember being told Republicans were going to lose badly, but at the last moment things started to trend Republican. My worry? In 1996 all the good late news was just kidding ourselves. Dole really was about to get shellacked. In 2002 and 2004, things turned out better.

So I'm hoping that the polls are wrong, and there are some good reasons to think that they might be, but they might also be right.

That's lame. You should at least try and make some predictions...

Well Gosh, maybe the reason I originally wrote about my worries rather than give my predictions had a little bit to do with the fact that my predictions were pretty close to yours. Doesn't make for a great post.

Great marxists think alike I guess.
