Prediction Election 2012

I've already made this prediction in several other places, but here for the record is my prediction:

Romney will beat Obama at least as badly as Obama beat McCain

Republicans will keep the House, and take the Senate

Aiken will even win in Missouri.

Update 11/6/12:

Well I, and the American people, sure blew that one.

I guess we'll find out if the Chinese will really let us go $20 trillion in debt.

The End of the Beginning?

I just watched the livestream of the launch of the SpaceX mission to the International Space Station (ISS). (As an aside, just how fantastic is that fact? I can stream live high definition video over the internet! I remember taking vacumn tubes out of the back of my TV set to take down to the drug store to replace!) This launch is being almost totally ignored by the MSM and popular culture. However I believe that one day, this will be seen as a turning point, a twenty-first century golden spike if you will. For the first time, a totally private company has launched a reusable spacecraft on a commercial mission. I frankly don't know whether the geek or the historian in me is more excited.
