Okay, on Newville's blog (just ignore if you don't know who he is, or visit it here: http://www.xanga.com/Bart51285/545139491/erics-official-uber-detailed-election-predictions.html), he asserted that one did not have the right to make fun of his election predictions, unless they made their own.

And I figured hell, I love predicting things, and if I can predict baseball games wrong, I can sure as heck predict elections wrong.

So here goes:

(I'm made mine intentionally pessimistic, in order to counter the natural balance of the world of my predictions being wrong (though I suppose it could be optimistic, depending on your point of view))

Senate: Dems pick up four seats (PA, OH, RI, MT) GOP keeps VA, MO

House: Dems pick up 14 seats, one short of grabbing the House.

Special predictions:

Some confused Connecticut voters voting for Lieberman grimace when they realize that they thought they were voting for former Women's Basketball star Nancy Lieberman.

Peter King, GOP congressman, wins but resigns, and immediately offers his seat to Sports Illustrated NFL writer Peter King.

After Rick Santorum loses his Senate seat in PA, he will buy some crystal meth and not use it, and hire a male prostitutde to massage him, but not sleep with him. (http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/11/03/haggard.allegations/index.html)

George W. Bush will attempt to amend the constitution to allow him to run for a 3rd term, and the Democrats will support it, knowing they have a better chance against him than against John McCain

This is so depressing. Even the Republicans were saying the Dems would take the House! Sheesh, Andrew, I am SO glad you were wrong.
