Barack Obama Wins Presidency

Barack Obama has defeated John McCain in a landside in the 2008 Presidential Election, as we predicted weeks ago.

Obama preached change throughout his campaign, and we hope that you won a little change by voting on the clear favorite down the stretch.

You're going to hear a lot about the significance of Obama's win in terms of him being the first African-American President of the United States, but even more significant is the fact that the Washington Redskins are now 18-1 in predicting the next president.

With the Redksins losing their last home game prior to the election to the Steelers yesterday, the system called for the incumbent party to lose in the election. Indeed, Republican John McCain lost worse than the Skins the night before, putting the system back on track.

All Obama had to do was ride the Bus, or at least Jerome Bettis' former team, to lead him to the White House.

It's important to note once again that this system was a perfect 17-0 prior to the 2004 election, when George W. Bush had to ruin everything by defeating John Kerry in the election despite a Redskins loss to the Packers before voting day. Judging by the way Kerry attempts to catch a football, though, we think it's only fair that he was the one to buck the trend. So, after going winless since 2000, the Redskins last home game system is back on a winning streak.

We hope you went out and voted today, and we hope that your next vote will be one for Stock Lemon. And hopefully you cast that vote more than once every four years. Come back soon!
