    Predictions

    The polls, and more importantly the bookmakers, seem to be indicating a very favorable election cycle for the Democrats. So some friends and I came up with some predictions.

    Donald Trump will refuse to leave the White House, citing the CDC ban on evictions.

    Shocked at the magnitude of his victory, Biden will suffer a severe cardiac event. Neil Kinnock’s life will flash before his eyes. He will recover and deliver Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address, in an “honest mistake”.

    Senate Democrats will demand Justice Barrett recuse herself from all cases involving vertebrates. Failing that, they will propose legislation increasing the size of the Court to an “Infinity Plus One” standard.

    Vice President Harris will commence Amendment 25 proceedings, citing the first presidential debate.

    President Harris will sign Medicare for All into law, with an exception clause barring Democratic Committee Chairs displaying unseemly degrees of civility toward their opposition.

    The Senate will bring back the filibuster, including a “double secret probation provision”.

    4 points is not going to do it. Donald will whip up some kind of a coup and his base will start an "Occupy The White House" movement.

    You can have the first but probably not the second wish.

    If I were a betting person I might go 3 to 1 odds Biden over Trump and even odds for the Senate to go either way. I have a suspicion that Trump is mentally unable to accept being a looser if he goes down, and will concoct some sort of conspiracy or rabbit out of the hat legal issue that might end up in courts. Maybe some sort of significant civil unrest either way.

    He's been laying the groundwork for that for the last several months - all the stories about voter fraud, etc. He'll be able to say, "see, I told you so."
