Never make a prediction on the Internet

Used to be you made a prediction in print and it was gone in a day – lost in the morgue of some newspaper or the bowels of the public library. Nowadays, it’s written in indelible digital ink that can make you look almost instantly ridiculous- like the “wise words” of this basketball expert predicting a Nugget victory over the Lakers yesterday. What really happened is here.

Which leads me to that other sport – politics. I’m not makin’ any predictions here, but as that cliche of cliches goes, it ain’t over ’til it’s over and the fat lady sings at the end of the day. Hillary, as her most loyal of vassals Lanny Davis implies in The Top Ten List of Undisputed Facts Showing Barack Obama’s Weakness in the General Election Against John McCain could actually pull this one out. [I think Davis is a secret neocon.-ed. He’d never admit it to himself.]
