Lieberman & Palin

Brian63, I owe you $100.

I was damn close though.


  1. Holy crapola, I had forgotten about this. That is odd too, because the vast majority of my political predictions are wrong. You would think that I would remember one that I managed to get right, but nope. Failed that too.

    At the moment I do not have any charities in mind, but can follow back with you at a later time when I find one. Or, I would be perfectly happy if you already have a favorite charity you would like to donate it to and get it off my tasklist. Either way is good.

    Thanks Larry,


  2. Well, I'm on the board of directors of The Lung Connection, a legitimate 501 (c) 3 nonprofit that provides housing for lung transplant patients. My mom is the founder and Executive Director.

    Would that be acceptable?

  3. That would be outstanding.



    P.S. I had read that McCain himself wanted Lieberman, but that his staff convinced him to with Palin instead.

  4. That's what I heard too. I feel like I'm at the races and my winner was disqualified. Shit happens, rama rama.

  5. You owe him an extra $50, honey. He said it wouldn't be a Caucasian male and it would be someone very conservative, chosen to pander to the base.

    Right on both counts.

    I'm impressed. This Brian guy is smart. Make more bets with him and your mother will get rich.

  6. He is smart. But I didn't actually accept the side bet, so it's only $100.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
