Friday Night Wine & Rusty Nail Blogging

Enjoying my wager winnings of a bottle of Drambuie & a bottle of 12 year old Balvenine because Air America was still in business on July 27th of this year.

I've never lost a political wager: I know it's a cliché to say "I bet with my head and not my heart" but it's true. A conservative friend wagered that Air America would not be in business a year later; his wager was too late - they had their fiducial problems early on, but by July 27th, 2004 the worst has passed. Also once Bush won the election, that guaranteed enough of a market (hey even Clear Channel gives them a San Diego station) for them to stay in business, so that wager was easy money.

Well the Rusty Nail was fine as was the Raspberry vinaigrette dressing (and the Black Mountain 2003 Zinfandel) on the salad, so hope all out there in the blogosphere are enjoying such a fine meals this evening, and I look forward to winning several political wagers come January 2009!

Here's a political wager, with a bottle of Bonny Doon Framboise as the stakes:

Hillary will promise to the people of New York that she will not run for president in 2008 in order to maintain her senate seat next year. She will win re-election, then break her promise in a run for the White House, where she'll lose in the primaries and slink back to Capitol Hill to finish her pathetic political career.

A non-Framboise prediction: The woman will never hold a real job - just like her loser husband. Birds of a feather....
