Redskins lost to Steelers on MNF (Does this help GOP/Mac)

Posted on 11/04/2008 3:55:57 AM PST by DocT111

I was listening to Rush yesterday and he said that if the Washington Redskins win their game before an election (I can't remember if it was the MNF or a Sunday game), the incumbents win in the election...

Since Pittsburgh defeated Washington, how does this bode for Mac?

Just curious...

An alternate way of winning an election is to get more votes than your opponent.

Wellll...it makes the potential McCain voters here in Stiller country very happy...and a happy, content fan is more likely to go stand in line and vote! Rush will be happy too (he is a huge Steeler fan). And, FWIW, Rush (on his show yesterday) said he ran into John Madden (over the weekend in Indy) and Madden explained that the string was already 'broken.'

Now...don't be worrying about silly superstitions...step away from the keyboard AND GO VOTE!!!

Historical coincidence as a predictor? The 2004 result should have been a good sign for Kerry. It wasn’t. Dixville notch voted overwhelmingly Dem for the first time since 1968. So what. It just means they really blew it then, with Nixon, and failed to properly predict Clinton’s election, twice.

Well, since the Steelers represent the working man, the working man has beat Washington. McCain and Palin are more for the working man and they’ve been campaigning to take on Washington.

I’ll take whatever good omen I can find or makeup today. LOL

According to Rush (and the legend), if the Redskins win then the party in power in White House will win. So Skins loss means Dems win Presidency.

It made Giant fans so happy that they will jump out of bed today and run to the polls.

No self-respecting Giants fan would ever vote for an America-hating, marxist crackhead, so this means that McCain will cruise to victory in New York and New Jersey.

And because Pittsburgh is a coal area of the country, they want to be heard and they are saying we matter so let’s vote for McCain

Washington lost to Green Bay 4 years ago. Technically the Redskins are not in Washington. They are in PG County, MD.

Nah, but it helped the Giants increase their lead in the NFC East. (Good job, Pitt).

“It mean the Redskins suck. Go Cowboys!”

Listen here wolfcreek:

As a lifetime Redskins fan, hard core conservative, and soon to be disgruntled, disgusted American Patriot, all I can say to your “Go Cowboys” is this is not the time to be ranking on our team (yeah, THAT team you taunt with “Redskins suck”) and promoting your pathetic, Jerry Jones ridden, Homo Romo, Dallas Cowgirls.

There: that felt good. Probably the best I’m gonna feel all day.

“There: that felt good. Probably the best I’m gonna feel all day.”

How about this: Redskins suck, Eagles suck, Giants suck and this year, dim Cowboys been suckin.

I’m trying to cheer myself up also.

I hate it when the Cowboys play the Giants because there’s no way both of them can lose.

He also pointed out that in 2004 the Skins lost, and made the comment that the string was broken.

It's all nonsense anyway...go vote!!!

Well. after Roethlisberger was injured and didn’t return for the 2nd half, it meant that no matter which team won, a black quarterback was going to lose.

Sounds like a great portent of things to come.
