Which news source best predicts the political future?

Posted By on Mon, Nov 3, 2008 at 4:22 PM

Apparently, the award for most accurate political forecast goes to: The Onion. Days before the January 2001 inauguration of President Bush, the Onion ran a story headlined: "Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over.' " In the article,  Bush promised to take the country into a deep recession, worsen the environment and "end the severe war drought that plagued the nation under Clinton." Of course, that all came true. I just hope we don't make the same mistake again tomorrow.

    The death penalty makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because there is always a chance the wrong person is being executed.
