Predicting the Media Spin

The media, both on the news pages and in their endorsements, are overwhelmingly supporting John Kerry. The outcome of the election will make for some interesting spin the next day. I’ll jump the gun and make my predictions on their spin.

(All outcomes assume the Republicans hold both House and Senate.)

If Kerry Wins by 5 points:
It is clear the American people are smart. They did not fall for the fear mongering of 9/11 and they selected the more intellectual candidate. His resounding victory gives him such a clear mandate. The Republicans in Congress should turn over the chairmanships of all the committees to Democrats.

If Kerry Wins by 1 point:
It is clear the American people are smart. They did not fall for the fear mongering of 9/11 and they selected the more intellectual candidate. His resounding victory gives him such a clear mandate. The Republicans in Congress should turn over the chairmanships of half the committees to Democrats.

If Bush wins by 1 point
The fear of 9/11 was so strong people decided it was better in time of war to stick with what they had — even though everyone knows he sucks. The rednecks won. The narrow margin of victory showed Bush has no mandate and should replace all conservative in his cabinet with liberals and the Republicans in Congress should offer a few committee chairmanships to Democrats as a show of good faith.

If Bush wins by 5 point
John Kerry was a really bad candidate.
