imageThe obligatory 2011 predictions post.

  1. Jonathan Martin of POLITICO will actually cite named sources for his articles.
  2. Ron Paul will lead an actual offline poll.
  3. Chris Matthews will start getting thrills up his leg when Sarah Palin speaks, seeks medical attention.
  4. President Barack Obama’s teleprompter will malfunction and Michelle Obama will end up holding cue cards from the House Gallery during State of Union speech.
  5. Mitt Romney will have a hair out of place during the first Republican presidential debate.
  6. Dick Morris will suddenly embrace Iowa’s first in the nation status.
  7. Karl Rove will endorse Sarah Palin for President in 2012.
  8. MSNBC in order to improve ratings hire Sean Hannity away from Fox News and create a new show “Hannity and Olbermann.”
  9. Club for Growth endorses Mike Huckabee in his 2012 presidential bid.
  10. Members of Congress will vote to give themselves a pay cut.

I’m *sure* all of these will happen.  Bank on it.  What are your predictions?

Have a Happy New Year!

  1. Thanks for posting your “wild” 2011 predictions Shane. It should prove to be a very interesting year here in Iowa as we build up to the “Hawkeye Cauceye”

  2. Hard to tell about Palin. She’s gone silent – not even a tweet since Christmas Eve – it’s the first time I can remember that Sarah hasn’t responded to dumb remarks by people like Snooki. Maybe Bristol moving to AZ signals something, or Sarah’s read about her latest polls. I can’t see anything improving her acceptance outside of her diehard supporters. Hopefully she’s getting real and will decline to run – she’d be foolish to give up all she’s attained for a stressful job – I highly doubt her family would back her to run as president.

      1. Could be, but it’s odd she didn’t let supporters know she be gone/busy for a while. She could also be busy helping Bristol pack. We’ll know soon enough.

        Happy New Year everyone.

      2. I follow several potential 2012 candidates on Twitter and nobody has been extremely active. Santorum has probably been the most active. Romney has been quiet, and I only noticed one Huckabee tweet after Christmas related to HuckPAC fundraising. I’m just saying I think you are reading way too much into it.
