How I was right
OK, so my electoral prediction was wrong. BUT, I got several other things right:

  • The popular vote was 51% to 48%.
  • I've been saying for months that Karl Rove's strategy to energize the base instead of pursuing the median voter would be successful
  • I said that Catholics would begin voting Republican
  • I said that John Kerry's "not Bush" status would not be enough to turn out Democrats win the White House
  • And, perhaps my most prophetic prediction (see: here, here and here): The blind pursuit of immediate gay marriage by the gay lobby resulted in a massive backlash which brought Bush to reelection, and probably pushed gay rights back at least another 10 years.
Yay me!
