W = Loser (I Wish)
You know that I'd be remiss if I didn't make any predictions about the upcoming "debate." This may amuse about 1.5 of you, but I think:
-- there will be some smirking
-- about half the words Bush uses will be included in variations of the phrases "stay the course," "thugs and assassins," and "freedom to the people of Iraq"
-- Kerry will be all aggressive and come off looking like a big ol' Massachussetts liberal Jerk (capital "J")
-- the talking heads will pronounce that "Kerry didn't show us anything new" and call Bush the winner
-- deep down inside, Bush will still be a loser
I'll take this prediction thing a step further: Bush will win in November, getting about 55% of the popular vote and 295 electoral votes. And even further still, Colin Powell will retire from the Cabinet, we will have a military confrontation with Iran over their nu-cu-lar stockpile, kids will be drafted to fight, and Civilization as we know it will never be the same again.
Or, I could soften that and go with the safer, less-flashy prediction and say between November 3 and the Inauguration, about 25% of Bush supporters will realize their mistake. And it will be too late to fix it.
Ooops. Thanks, fuckers.
