McCain wins and retires after 1 term so she can run.

If they win. McCain dies in office or becomes gravely ill. She is put in charge and the entire thing spirals out of control. I am really not joking about this either.

McCain loses and joins Bob Dole in a series of increasingly creepy Viagra ads. Palin becomes this generation's Geraldine Ferraro.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

I see a 50/50 chance that "Troopergate" blows up bigtime and Palin is off the ticket if it happens soon or I can see it coming out close to election day and really damaging McCain.

They are making a big mistake by not cooperating in the investigation.

Obama wins but Biden is off the ticket in 2012. Palin runs in the GOP primary that year but loses to Mike Huckabee, who loses himself in November. John McCain ultimately retires from the Senate sometime in his 80s.

Just for the sheer comedy value of the scenario. McCain wins the most bitterly divisive election in history and is impeached before the midterm elections for multiple flagrant and egregious violations of McCain-Feingold, leading to a Palin v. Clinton showdown in 2012.

Bob Barr wins, sending the nation into shock. He wins again in four years with Carol Moseley Braun as his running mate. However, a lot of democrats and republicans run as independents to ride the wave.

McCain loses, after Bob Barr costs him several swing states. Palin resurfaces later, when she runs for the Senate seat vacated by the indicted Ted Stevens.

Another generation of Video Game Consoles is released, movies with no plot and excessive CGI special effects dominate the box offices, television pundits get louder and more obnoxious, and around 10% of the U.S. population can enjoy them due to an economic depression we thought we'd avoid by putting ourselves in a recession. Voter turnout hits an all-time low as most people are too busy trying to find some way to find something to eat, and after the winner of the election enacts his plan to end the struggles by taxing the rich even less, a multinational coalition invades and starts drilling for oil, no matter what we say.

Start stocking shotgun shells.

No. Seriously. You all should listen to me - check out this post from October 16th, 2004. It won't let me quote the post, but here's the thread http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=22752 so you can verify yourself.

If I get this one right too I'm going to start thinking I deserve a guest spot on Heroes.

I'm going to (regretably) say that due to some late Bush attacks and dirty tricks, Kerry does not manage to close the deal on terrorism with swing voters, and Bush wins 53 - 46 - 1, with about 320 electoral votes.

However, I'm also calling the Senate 50-49-1 for the Dems (biggest upset - Crazy Jim Bunning gets knocked off in Kentucky), and pick up two house seats to boot. Bush proceeds to have a disaterous second term, lose the House in 2006, and have the Dems COngress make his life miserable for the next two years. This leads to a reformer/outsider/good government McCain type being elected President decisively in 2008. Think a kind of 1972 repeat.

By the way, I've been saying "Bush wins handily, has horrible second term" consitently since "who's going to win in 2004" was a question.
