Clearly, this means nothing

But, hey, it’s a little fun on election day.

In 17 of the last 18 presidential elections (since 1936), when the Redskins franchise has won its final home game before the presidential election, the ruling party stays in power. When the Redskins lose their final home game before Election Day, the party out of power wins the election. The only exception: 2004 when the Packers beat the Redskins 28-14 on October 1, but George W. Bush beat John Kerry, 286 Electoral Votes to 251.  Accuracy: 94.5% (17/18) (thanks, Mike)

Coming in to last night’s game, the Redskins were 6-2, while the Steelers were 5-2.  The Skins were favored to win by 2-1/2 points.

So what happened?  The Steelers won:  23-6.  They didn’t squeak by; it was a landslide. 

Clearly, this means nothing.  Right?

    Homeland Security is hoping for McCain to win. I have proof of that .
    If you are in the coal mining bizz then vote McCain because Obama has you in his sights to shut you down. PA needs to remember what happened when the steel plant shut down. How many ghost town will Obamas make. If it wasnt for company’s like Phoenix Glass that part of PA would have gone out . You dont kill jobs ,You dont raise taxes and spend more on a weak dollar. YOU CUT TAXES YOU SPEND LESS AND YOU KEEP AMERICANS WORKING.

    When he shuts them down not just the states the mines are in will suffer great economic collapse but the state surrounding them. WAKE UP Ohio, Pennsylvania. Wake UP Virgina . WAKE UP AMERICA. The on change he is selling is control .

    Good lord….

    Of course DHS supports McCain. They like the kind of power a GOP fear-mongering war-junkie offers to them.

    The stuff about the coal industry is just a lie. Obama said nothing of the sort. He said that the coal industry would go bankrupt unless it became more environmentally responsible, which only a fool wouldn’t support. He’s not threatening to shut down anything, and if you’d actually listen to what he says, you’d know that.

    And the “control” argument is just bogus. There’s simply NO evidence that he wants any more control over people’s lives than McCain. McCain is the one who wants (now, anyway) to outlaw women’s choices. McCain voted, with Obama, to throw hundreds of millions of dollars at the banking industry. McCain swears he’s going to “clean up” Washington, which sounds like somebody threatening to “take control” if I’ve ever heard it.

    If you’d quit yapping and listen, you’d realize that McCain/Palin’s agenda is WAAAAAY more radical than Obama/Biden’s.
