"The first involves the Washington Redskins' final home game before an election, beginning in 1936. If the Redskins won that game, the incumbent party would retain the White House. That held true for 16 elections in a row, from 1936-2000. In 2004, however, the Redskins lost at home (of course they did) two days before George W. Bush was reelected to the White House."

Or was he?

Guntram Shatterhand: At this point it's not about predicting the winner, but predicting what the batshiat crazy right-wing is going to do when Obama wins.


Well, in this election cycle the Internet appears to have played a major part in countering the distortions emanating from their wholly-owned media outlets so one guess would be efforts to dampen anonymous on-line discussions because of terrorism and the children.

I don't know about superstition but Alabama has been among the most accurate predictor of which presidential candidates are the least qualified and most backwards thinking since at least 1860.

Summoner101: starsrift: thurstonxhowell: The size of my poo the Sunday morning before a presidential election has been a flawless predictor my whole life. If it's large, the Republican wins, if it's small, the Democrat wins. I had Ethiopian last night.

Checkmate, libs.

Isn't Ethiopia the country famous for having famines and continuing health issues owing to malnutrition?

Have you ever drank African water?


I've had my share of water-borne parasites in the digestive tract. The result, again, does not, er, favor the Repubs by this metric...

I would use the wind to predict the results of the election like I usually do, but Romney keeps changing directions so I can't be sure.
