Murdocstications

Here’s my stab in the dark for 2004:

  • January: Patriots win the Super Bowl. Big.
  • February: Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.
  • March:Insurgents step up attacks against US forces in Iraq. Dems claim that Allied presence has finally drawn foreign fighters and terrorists into the war.
  • April: All the troops that were supposed to have Interceptor body armor by December finally get it as they rotate out of Iraq. Active duty and National Guard troops rotating into Iraq are still short of armor.
  • May: Osama bin Laden is either captured alive or proven dead. If captured alive, he will be proven dead shortly afterwards.
  • June: The September launch of the space shuttle is delayed until 2005. At least.
  • July: Iraqi government takes control of Iraq without a constitution. The UN blasts the US for “rushing to peace.” (Also, one million Iranians march in cities across the nation, demanding freedom and liberty. The Iranian army cracks down. Big media fails to notice.)
  • August: Bush names Colin Powell his running mate, Condi Rice his planned Secretary of State, and Paul Wolfowitz his planned Secretary of Defense. Rumsfeld is out of the picture, but Dick Cheney will linger on in an “undisclosed location.”
  • September: Al Qaeda launches desperate round of attacks against US and Iraqi forces in Iraq in an attempt to derail Bush’s campaign. Dems claim that Allied presence has finally drawn foreign fighters and terrorists into the war.
  • October: Ice hockey lockout. It won’t be short.
  • November: Bush wins the election. Big.
  • December: United States executive branch nearly paralyzed by claims of electronic voting machine fraud. Seventeen states demand a recount, but paperless system leaves nothing to recount.

  1. There will be an assassination attempt on a member of the Bush cabinet before the election.
