Nostradamus Writings Predict McCain Victory

CAP NEWS - "Conventional wisdom picks Obama. Nostradamus, four and a half centuries ago, picked John McCain," said Dr. Hubert Evans, professor of Renaissance Studies at Yale University and author of the best-selling "Nostradamus: Prophesize This!"

"Quatrain 78, Century X in particular seems to indicate that Obama had better not be measuring the White House windows for curtains quite yet, at least by my interpretation," said Dr. Evans.

The quatrain to which Dr. Evans refers - Quatrain 78 - is located in the grouping of stanzas known as Century X. Originally published in 1555 in Nostradamus' still-popular Les Prophecies, Quatrain 78 reads in full:

At the war's end: The Feeble Kept One will strike down the Night And his Imbecile Queen will rise from the snow Bedecked in finery and the pelt of a wolf.

Another bogus Nostronuttyness article like we had around 9/11. Quatrain 78, Century X actually states:

Sudden joy to sudden sadness, It will occur at Rome for the graces embraced: Grief, cries, tears, weeping, blood, excellent mirth, Contrary bands surprised and trussed up.

I did a search and can't even find the prophecy they quoted.

Q:78 (a. huffington better watch her butt !)

The Greek lady of ugly beauty,
Made happy by countless suitors,
Transferred out to the Spanish realm,
Taken captive to die a miserable death.

It does not pay a prophet to be too specific.
