Politics and Sports: Specious Correlations

In the first days of November 2004, after the Red Sox had won the World Series, but before the election, it seemed like maybe the laws of real-life narrative had been rewritten and the happy ending could triumph. Then Bush won.

So if those few days created a law of mixed return, so to speak, perhaps the Pats loss bodes well for Obama?

Then again, it could be argued that the Giants' win is a triumph of happy endings and underdogs, which could also bode well for Obama?

Oh, if only narrative law and the rules of interpretation could consistently apply to real life.

Tune in tomorrow...

well, Michelle Obama will make one hell of a first lady, so let's all hope. She is one smart woman.
