Goldwater's Ghost: 2010 Predictions

- Republicans will capture at least eight of the 15 or so incumbent Democrat Senate seats up for re-election in 2010; they will lose only one - Arizona

- Of the 40 or so Democrat seats up in the House, Republicans will win 18; they will lose only three of their incumbent seats

- Sensing a moment of confusion within the current Iranian regime, Israel will attack nuclear facilities within that country sometime in the first half of 2010. The price of oil and gold will skyrocket from current levels as a result...

- ...only to have gold crash in the 3rd quarter of the year

- One prominent member of the Obama Cabinet will resign under a cloud of suspicion

- Ben Bernanke will face a contentious Senate re-confirmation process. News will leak that Bernanke will withdraw his nomination, touching off a minor market panic. The Senate re-considers, votes to confirm overwhelmingly and Bernanke accepts

- Sarah Palin, perhaps in a deal brokered through Rush Limbaugh, will announce plans for a syndicated radio talk show

- There will be at least three more major snowstorms (12 inches or more) that will pound the mid-Atlantic states between January and March

- A major media fixture/celebrity will come out of the closet

- Economic growth will be sluggish, hampered in part by rising oil prices and other commodities; the unemployment rate will continue to rise to over 11% before falling back down to 10.5% by the end of the year.

"A major media fixture/celebrity will come out of the closet". I knew it, I knew it! Tiger Woods is gay!

Sadly, I think you're right about that Arizona seat.

Greg - He might as well be. He's apparently already played all the regulation holes.

Poor Tiger. He just lost AT&T. Just goes to show, if you can't move the needle anymore you're history.
Tiger is finding out something than every man over the age of 16 should know, but seldom learn before 40. There's nothing on this planet as expensive as a piece of ass.
