Election 2006: I Told You So


It's very unlovely for a winner to crow, but what the hell!  In my January 2, 2006 crystal ball column I predicted: "A rising tide of voter disgust with corruption will toss the Republicans out of the U.S. House of Representatives in November elections and a new blessed era of gridlocked government will begin."  Don't know how "blessed" the Republic is going to be, but my friend and colleague Brian Doherty owes me a nice expensive dinner. So does my Charlottesville friend (and sometime Republican activist) Paul Wright. 

When are you next coming to DC, Brian?

P.S. A lot of my other predictions have only a couple of months to come true.
