Twelve Predictions For 2012 (Part 2)

I posted my first six predictions here.

7. The Yankton School Board will pursue a second opt out.  The fact that the downtown Yankton post office is closing or has closed will be used as a reason to reject the opt out.

8. Trying to prove it's a real sport, NASCAR will have a work stoppage during 2012.

9. The San Diego ComicCon will have to be shut down when geeky fanboys and fangirls start a brawl during a session that has panelists discuss whether action movie sequels or Marvel/DC crossover events are more annoying.

10. The Republicans will select either Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity as the vice presidential nominee.  Rick Perry will take over as talk show host.  No one will notice any difference.

11. A group of Republican legislators will try to amend current civil rights law to gain minority status for the richest one percent of Americans.  Those sponsoring the legislation will seek protection for themselves as "irony challenged individuals of wealth."

12. Because each party has appropriated every President of the other party, political consultants will counsel candidates of both parties to claim the legacy of William Henry Harrison. In protest, Michael Beschloss and Doris Kearns Goodwin will refuse to do Sunday morning interview shows.
