I Hate to Say I Told You So.


damn, that jesus stuff really works.


Scott Lemmons sent this my way and I wanted to share it with you.

I Hate to Say I Told You So...

...but I told you so!

Now here's the thing. I'm already hearing a few people getting depressed out there (as well as a few people who aren't getting depressed). But you see -- winning this election is the worst possible thing that could happen to George.

From now on, when something goes wrong, he can't blame Clinton or Daschle. He went from a 90% approval rating to just over 50% (and let's be honest, it was a lot less than 50%. Diebold machines weren't working right, votes were being suppressed. Watch foreign media for the real story in a few days, though American media won't mention it for another four years). Nothing else good will happen to the Bushites. The economy will continue to tank. Soldiers will continue to be slain in Iraq and Afghanistan. The draft will get started up. Scandal will continue to dog this administration, no matter how much the media tries to cover it up. The Plame Affair, Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, Halliburton, Enron, Diebold -- more and more revelations will come out about this stuff, and the citizenry will not react well to them. The next time there's a terrorist attack, people won't rally 'round Bush -- they'll say, "Wasn't this the guy who campaigned that he'd keep us safe?" Bush's approval ratings will drop farther and farther and farther, and more and more people will start saying, "I wish I'd voted for Kerry."

I think, in two years, that Bush is going to lose both the Senate and the House. After that, I think he'll be impeached before the next election. By 2008, the GOP will be lucky if they can get a candidate who'll get 30% of the vote, and it'll be another two decades before they'll be able to convince the electorate to give them the White House again. Bush and this current incarnation of the GOP will be viewed as little better than the Dixiecrats -- wrong about everything and abandoned on the ashheap of history.

Take it from a certified prophet: we're going to enjoy the next four years.


The next four years were going to be hard on anyone who won. Let it be hard on Bush.
