A Dilemma, and A Solution
From e-mailer Reggie:
I know why you have been so quiet. You’re
shell-shocked by the Fiesta Bowl already, not knowing whether to cheer for the Buckeyes of Ohio State or the altar boys from Notre Dame, and you can’t focus until you resolve this dilemma.
Now I feel your pain, so I have a Democratic solution for you, modeled after their apparent approach to the Iraq war. Cheer for one team on odd days and the other on even, and then announce you were for the winner all along when the game is over. The only thing you have to remember is that when you are challenged by someone with a bit of an accurate memory to make sure that you cite the proper set of transcripts. Hey, it’s worked for the Dems on Iraq so far – why won’t it work for you for the Fiesta Bowl?
I’m sure you’ll love this approach – it’s simple, direct, and effective, and you will always appear to be the winner. Don’t thank me – returning you to the ranks of political blogging is reward enough.
Let’s see. Even days for the Irish. Odd days for the Bucks. This just might work.
One thing is for sure: Hook’em, Horns!
Ed Morrisey wrongly assumes that my December, 2005 system carries over into January, 2006. In fact, we will be announcing our new approach, with Hillary, on January 5, 2006.
