Just about everyone loves to predict what's going to happen. Why? Because they just know what's going to happen, of course! I'm no exception to the rule, so here's my list of predictions for the next fourteen months:
1 - A natural disaster will occur, and some conservative evangelical preacher will claim it's because Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed. (To be honest, I heard this one on the radio but I agree with it wholeheartedly)
2 - The Republicans will accuse Democrats of voter registration fraud (a misdemeanor) but will commit voter and/or election fraud (a felony). Democratic bloggers will call them out on it, but nothing will be done about it.
3 - The Tea Party will once again rear its head. Rallies of tens of Tea Partiers will garner more media coverage than rallies of thousands of anyone who might be protesting for something that Democrats support. And the conservatives will still continue to claim that the media has a liberal bias.
4 - There will be a big snowstorm somewhere in America this winter, and the global-warming deniers will come out in full force claiming that the snowstorm is proof that global warming is false, a conspiracy to protect the paychecks of climatologists.
5 - The Republican presidential nominee will be Mitt Romney, with either Ron Paul or John Huntsman as nominee for vice president in a bid to capture the moderate and independent voters. Note: I predicted (not online, just to myself) that McCain would choose Palin. It was a sure thing because he was a sailor and she was a pretty girl (to his eyes).
6 - The Democratic party will take a position that the GOP previously held, as they did with cap-and-trade, the individual mandate, and government subsidies for businesses other than Big Oil, and the GOP will immediately reject said position as socialist and condemn as a RINO any Republican politician who still supports that position.
