Apparently, the award for most accurate political forecast goes to: The Onion. Days before the January 2001 inauguration of President Bush, the Onion ran a story headlined: "Bush: 'Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Finally Over.' " In the article, Bush promised to take the country into a deep recession, worsen the environment and "end the severe war drought that plagued the nation under Clinton." Of course, that all came true. I just hope we don't make the same mistake again tomorrow.
