Does the REDSKINS RULE predict the Election?
Former Monkey Dominique sent me an email last night, reminding me of the REDSKINS RULE. The idea is that:
If the Washington Redskins win their last home game before the election, the incumbent party will keep the White House. This has apparently proved true 16 out of 17 times, since 1936, with the lone exception being 2004. Another way to look at that would be it was accurate 16 times in a row, and then the cycle was broken 4 years ago, but whatever floats your boat.
Anyway, THE REDSKINS LOST TO THE STEELERS 23 - 6.
If the REDSKINS RULE is correct, this means Obama wins the election. (See more)
