Here are a few of my predictions for 2008:

  1. If either Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani are the GOP nominee, the Democrats will easily win the White House because the conservatives will stay home in droves.
  2. If Ron Paul and Michael Bloomberg run as independents… the Dems still win because Paul will siphon off more GOP voters than Bloomberg will siphon from the Dems. But if Paul stays out and Bloomberg runs, his entrance just might cut in favor of the GOP candidate. Neither Paul nor Bloomberg can win on their own, of course.
  3. Rosie O’Donnell will get even fatter in 2008.
  4. Pakistan’s Pervez Musharraf will be assassinated.
  5. The GOP will continue to fight the good fight against the Dem Congress making great headway and setting themselves up for some excellent wins in 2010.
  6. Britney Spears will go into rehab. She will be photographed having a pillow fight there with Lindsay Lohan.
  7. Neither the Chicago Bulls, the Cubs, the White Sox, nor the Bears will win much of anything.
  8. Speaking of Chicago, Mayor Richard Daley will be involved in a scandal that he claims not to know anything about.
  9. Kieth Olberman will have a brain aneurism… if he does, indeed, have a brain, that is.
  10. Rush Limbaugh will say he is right about something or another, probably in his first show of the New Year.
  11. Hillary Clinton will say someone is out to get her. But, it won’t be Bill because he hasn’t been interested in her for about 20 something years.
  12. And I will make some liberal somewhere mad. A lot. Repeatedly.

OK most of those aren’t out too far on a limb, but I never said I was any Sylvia Brown. Or maybe I am better than that because her prediction record is really, really horrible.

Now, what are YOUR predictions?

Happy New Year, y’all.
