The talented writers at the National Review have tapped into their inner Nostradamus' (Nostradami?) and offered their predictions for the upcoming year. Some are serious, most are not, but all are worth the read. Here's a taste:
- Chelsea Clinton gets engaged.
- Howard Dean gets enraged.
- Cindy Sheehan fades.
- General Motors will be purchased by Google.
- Howard Dean will not finish 2006 as chairman of the DNC.
- There will be another Supreme Court vacancy.
- John McCain will recognize another major problem, speak out about it honestly and devise a solution that will not solve the problem but rather will make it worse.
- With strong bipartisan support Congress calls for a three-month embargo on Angelina Jolie adopting any more kids from the third world.
- Here in the U.S., 2006 is shaping up to be a tough year for the GOP with the party continuing to pay the price, in scandal, and worse, for becoming too comfortable, too complacent, and too forgetful of the lessons of 1994. Will they hold on in the midterms? Yes, but not without some nasty scares, and every nasty scare makes it more likely that McCain will be the nominee in '08.
- Al Franken, Michael Moore, and Nancy Pelosi will all admit that they are indeed hypocrites. (Okay, it was worth a shot.)
