Bad News for Bush: the Redskins Lost Today

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I first heard this on Keith Olbermann's show.

Apparently, the last 17 times the Redskins won their last home game before a Presidential election, the incumbent candidate or party won the whole thing. When they didn't win this game, the wind of changes whistled through the Oval Office. Unfortunately for Team Bush, the Redskins lost today at home to the Green Bay Packers (of Wisconsin -- swing state).

I, for one, am hopeful.

Yeah . . . I was rootin for the Pack . . .. and not just because I'm now in Wisconsin

Besides, I'll never respecct a team with a name like that.

I saw this report on Countdown with Keith Oberman and I was wondering who won the game. I was keeping my fingers crossed the Redskins would lose.

Go Kerry!

And the Weekly Reader poll went for Bush, which has yet to be wrong.

Point?

Who cares.

If you are looking for certainty, here it is: One more day of people telling us who's gonna win, why we're dumb for not agreeing with their judment, and then 2 1/2 years of bashing/defending the winner before we get to start all this fighting again! YES! I'M PUMPED!

Nader won with his double chocolate cookies. Later his winning was revoked when it was discovered they were "special" cookies.
