2006 -- Halfway Done
Today at 1 p.m. (or at noon, if you're in an area that doesn't have Daylight Savings Time), 2006 will be half over. Hopefully everyone is still making good progress on their New Year's resolutions. (I had resolved this year to "get more grey hair" so I'm doing pretty good with mine.)
I figured this would be a good time to check up on how my "Predictions for 2006" were doing. They were:
1) Somewhere, a submarine will make national news. It won't be for something good.
2) Despite the hopes of moonbats everywhere, President Bush and Vice President Cheney will not be impeached.
3) Despite the dire warnings of the German press, the U.S. will not invade Iran.
4) The Democrats will gain a few seats in the 2006 mid-term elections, which will be the most expensive and nasty mid-term elections ever. Despite the fact that the party in power essentially always loses congressional seats in the 6th year of an administration, the MSM will portray it as a referendum on Iraq.
5) With all the documents being leaked, among those that won't be leaked will be the initial OPLAN for Operation Iraqi Freedom, since it would show that the current timetable for the drawing down of the occupation is essentially following the original plan.
6) Britney Spears and Kevin Federline will have marriage problems.
There aren't any that have been proven wrong yet, and all of them could still be true. The USS Columbus hazing issue hasn't really reached the national level yet, which is a good thing. Everything else is still on track (especially #6, based on the recent Matt Lauer interview that Britney gave, where Kevin was nowhere to be seen). I'm standing by all of them -- we'll check back in six months.
