Stick a fork in Kerry, he's done!

The US men's basketball team was trounced Sunday by a scrappy bunch of Puerto Rico players, led by Utah Jazz point guard Carlos Arroyo.

This the first time the US has lost in Olympic play since we started fielding "Dream Teams" back in 1992. It is the first loss in the Olympics since 1988. The only loss previous to that was in 1972. It would appear that the US basketball team is destined to have an off year every 16 years.

However, those numbers hold greater significance. Look closely. Every time the US loses an Olympic basketball game, the Republican candidate has gone on to win the election in a landslide that fall. Nixon in '72, Bush Sr. in '88. There may not be a gold medal for the US this year, but it looks like Bush Jr. is a lock for the presidency.

Remember, you read it here first.

And lest you think this method of election predicting is silly, take a look at what Bigwig is using.
