On election ’08.

Well, my endorsement apparently had no effect whatsoever on the results of the race, which is just as well. I don’t think Americans would have reacted favorably to being led by a coin.

President-Elect Barack Obama ended up with at least 40 more electoral votes than I thought he’d get. However, there’s still time for the rest of my prediction to come horrifyingly, nightmarishly true. Say what you will about Obama, he’s got at least two good things going for him: he’s not Hillary, and he’s not John Edwards. Good Lord, I despise that man. Edwards, I mean, not BHO.

Congratulations to Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress. As a service to our next President (again, assuming the Hillary Doomsday Scenario doesn’t come to pass), I will soon offer some advice for not screwing up the economy in the short run and ensuring its long run growth. But for now I’m drop-dead exhausted.

More good news: in 2012, I will be eligible for the Presidency and therefore will be able to vote with a totally clear conscience.

    I will need to hear more about your economic and eniviroment
    policies. Also I dont believe you can see a foreign country
    from your front door so you may need to shore up your foregin

    For who? For YOU? Pah. You’re a raging alcoholic. There, I said it.
