— AndrewR National Review's got 'em. Dave at Garfield Ridge's got 'em. And now so do I.
In no particular order:
The release of Spiderman 3 is beset by controversy when Sam Raimi includes a scene in which a fight between Spiderman and Hobgoblin devolves from punches, to shoves, and finally ends with five minutes of slow, deep kissing.
Buoyed by the success of his reality-denying Holocaust Conference, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lays plans for his Timothy Dalton is the Definitive James Bond conference.
Mitt Romneys hopes for a run at the presidency are crushed when reporters reveal that, in addition to being a Mormon, he is also a centaur.
In response to falling ratings for the yearly Oscar telecast, the Academy decides to award adult films for the first time. Viewers tune in in record numbers to see who wins the trophies for categories like Best Use of a Ball Gag in a Gay DOM/SUB Film and Most Convincing Portrayal of a Cheerleaders Trip to the Equipment Room.
Sean Hannitys on-air domination of Alan Colmes continues with a new nightly segment entitled Make Me a Sandwich, Alan.
Proving that hes still his own worst enemy, John Kerry attends a Halloween party dressed as a blackface minstrel and is caught on camera singing the racist folksong Possum Up A Gum Tree. He later explains the incident by saying that such stereotypes are often revered folk heroes for many in the African-American community, and I was merely paying tribute to that. He then adds, And Mel Gibson was right about the Jews. Jane Hamsher immediately rushes to explain that the costume and quotes need to be taken in context.
On Christmas Eve, Dick Cheney is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Before they can teach him any valuable moral lessons, however, he bums a twenty from them, snorts a line of blow, and sends the Ghost of Christmas Past back out to procure an underage Ukrainian prostitute and a pack of smokes for him. The other two are forced to stay and service his wife while he watches. It is generally agreed by all involved that this is the Best Christmas Ever.
Prediction for 2007:
An important event will happen somewhere in the world and it will be on the news.
Call me stubborn, but I'm sticking with this one.

In 2007, there will be a flood somewhere.
And at least one earthquake.
Again, maybe two of them as well.
No guts, no glory.

--Osama will renounce terrorism.
--Ted Kennedy will stop drinking.
--Michael Moore will lose weight.
--Al Gore will recheck the numbers and conclude that the global warming thing was just a miscalculation.
--Nancy Pelosi keeps her promise of ethical governance.
--China will accept that Taiwan is an independent nation.
--Rosie O'Donnel will shut up.
--Keith Olbermann sees his mistakes and strives for unbiased punditry.
--NYT stock rises as it gets a wider readership due to reporting straight, agenda-free news.
--Some wall street trader comes up with a new trading strategy. Everyday he asks Tushar about his stock picks, and does the reverse. The trader gets a $100 million bonus. Tushar gets a made in China watch and a certificate of appreciation.

The MSM will continue their "educational" count of dead US servicemen & women, but continue to refuse to publish the ## of dead insurgents, civilians, terrorists or forign fighters. It might incite them!
Just a hunch.
Happy New Year Y'all!

In March, 2007, the US Terror Alert level will reach SEVERE when John Edwards is caught smuggling 7 cans of hairspray, and 4 cans of mousse onto an airplane.
The 3 compacts will not be deemed a problem, however.

And then proceed to finish 6-10.
Joe Gibbs will praise the hardwork of his players and claim that he's never been prouder of the effort of his team.
Okay, so this belongs on a football blog, shoot me.
In fact, shoot me twice; I still root for this mess of a franchise.

I predict that the AP will quit trying to sabotage the US military, starting right now.
Too late. God, I hate this gig sometimes...
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- At least 3,000 U.S. military personnel have
died in Iraq since American forces invaded in 2003.

China will protest India's cache in the global market and will refuse to supply WalMart with cheap electronics, thus assuring that no more aspiring Britney Spears' wannabes will be able to purchase expensive iPod sleeves at trailer-park prices.
Mexico will become the new China, and along with exporting cheap electronics, it will export more lawn rangers to the U.S. in an attempt to help the Patels clean up their yards.

1. Iran will start a new war via hezbollah around March.
2. Hillary will be the front-runner Democrat, Obama will be her running mate.
3. Hamas will win the new Palestinian election, war with Israel will follow.
4. The Sunnis in Iraq will continue to be ethnically cleansed, the Shiites will become allied with Iran and ask us to leave. We will.
5. Al Qaida will commit major acts of terrorism in Europe.
6. China will take Taiwan.
7. Bush will be blamed for everything under the sun.

Drawing inspiration from this, John Kerry will switch over to the Republican Party, and run for President under the slogan 'US out of UN, UN out of US'.
He will also spit whenever he says the word 'France'.

The Northworst division in the Western Conference will abdicate its division winner, because they all suck... Anaheim and Nashville in the Western finals; Atlanta (!) and Buffalo in the East.
Baltimore- San Diego in the AFC Championship
New Orleans-Chicago in the NFC Championship (although it wouldn't surprise me to see Philly in there)

I predict I'll get a job working for John Edwards' campaign and finally realize one of my more recurrent fantasies. I'm just going to have to figure a way to get that dried-up fatass of a wife Elizabeth out of the way.
Why would Edwards stay with her when he could be tapping this?

Not even Democrats will be able to choke that down. She will come in 4th in New Hampshire, and withdraw (in her words) "to spend more time with my family. Um, I mean to devote more time to being a Senator for the people of New York. Oh screw it, I'm out of here."
"You won't have Hillary to kick around any more."

K_Fraud will discover he is a worthless bag of human waste and relegate himself to being Rosie O'Donnell's oil boy. Next season he will be traded to Dennis Rodman for Dave Navarro and a sexually ambiguous celebrity to be named later. Clay Aiken and Ryan Semen-crest fight openly for the job.
Parisite Hilton shuts her f-ing gob except when it's clamped around her boyfriend's main asset. His sense of taste having long ago surrendered to the pleasures of sex with a pale skinned skank as thin as a Somali pimp roll.
Clay Achin and country singer Kenny 'No chin, no chest, no Chesney" start their own queer country band, the Ass Wranglers. Both move to fire island and give in to their baser, Saddle sore valley urges. Rosie eventually adds them to her coterie of atrocious bitches.
Sean Hannity closes every segment by bitch slapping Alan Communist Colmes, But Rush bitch slaps everyone anyway, Hannity inlcuded. Sara Evans, a true Hannity hanger on, gets a pass for her boobs alone.
At the stroke of midnight Charlton Heston runs from his house screaming,"Damn Dirty Apes," only to find out those weren't apes, just reruns of the Dems winning the November elections.
NRA replaces mamby pamby pro-gun politics with hardcore progun politics and Wayne Lapierre is replaced by a dude named Duke, who smokes cigars and grudge bangs Bela Pelosi just for the fun of it. There is very litlle fun in it, by the way.
