Does anyone want to take bets?

I am willing to wager that the election in November gets screwed up. My guesses are: ballot fraud, improper receipt of overseas ballots (from G.I.s for instance), or maybe electronic voting machine fraud. I don't really think that there is any likelihood of any of those things happening any more often than usual, but I bet after having the results decided by the Supreme Court in the last election, either losing party in '04 will contest the ballots.

oh, and also; Bush, Jeb and the missus landed a helicopter on the training field of the Boston Red Sox on Saturday. Dubya emerged from the helicopter to the stadium's loudspeakers playing the theme to Top Gun. Seriously. The President of the United States of America landed a helicopter on a baseball field, and walked out to "Top Gun Anthem" by Harold Faltermeyer & Steve Stevens from the hit 1986 feature starring Tom Cruise and the delightful Kelly McGillis. It reminds me of the time that Winston Churchill rode a jet bike over Snake River Canyon and onto the Dover cliffs to "New Sensation" by INXS, the theme of 1988's License to Drive; no, actually, it does not.

Dear Cnn.Com; BoSox is not an acceptable abbreviation for the Boston Red Sox. Red Sox, or simply Boston, will do fine. Richard Bentley is dead, you aren't paying by the word now Wolf.
