The Republicans taking a trick from their ’94 playbook (and being successful) was so obvious that even Nerdodamus saw it pointless to predict – especially since Obama used a lot of Clinton staffers. no armchair Monday-morning quarterbacking from these guys.
Is it safe to say that 2011 will be much like 1995? Most likely – in the realm of cyclical politics. Pop Culture may yield some surprises though. Here are my predictions for 2011:
(Yes, I know these are softballs but remember who I am!)
1.) Government Shutdown over Political infighting regarding the budget.
2.) Scott Brown is heavily criticized as a RINO because he does not toe the party line.
3.) Hilary Clinton side-steps here claim she is not going to challenge Obama in 2012.
4.) Christine O’Donnell is indicted for misuse of campaign funds since she cannot be indicted for sole stupidity alone.
5.) 3 more States make Marijuana legal for Medicinal purposes.
6.) One state will officially go bankrupt.
7.) Member of Congress gets put on terrorist watch list.
8.) Another Republican Congressman gets caught in a gay scandal.
9.) The Quaid’s get what they really wanted – a reality show – claim whole stunt was “performance art.”
10.) Octomom runs out of options – does soft-core porn.
11.) A Gosselin is kept in the news solely because they get in trouble with the law.
12.) In-fighting begins at Fox news between O’Reilly, Hannity, and Beck over self-promotion, jealousy, and the fact that one of these guys will begin leaning over into the White nationalist realm a little too much.
13.) Jim Carrey, in an effort to rebuild his career lashes out at Jenny McCarthy for bringing him into her Pseudo-science circle. it is revealed this and her association with quacks brought down the relationship.
