Predictions, Prognostications, Skeptics and Politics, revisited

Last year, in a fit of insanity, I made some predictions.  First, though, I posted this disclaimer:
Being a humanist and a religious skeptic, among other more colorful epithets I've undoubtedly been called over the years, especially by my kids, I am rightfully reluctant to suddenly declare myself a Political Prognosticator.
My career with the Feds has prepared me to do any number of esoteric and sleep-inducing things, but being a PP is not one of them, so I will let that be my disclaimer for this piece.
Then, after some explanations for my insanity and how I was thinking, I made the following predictions:

  • There will be no jobs bill.
  • There will be no major economic bills passed at all, unless they can, like in the debt ceiling crisis, make the Democrats cave.
  • They will continue to pass meaningless bills to show their constituencies that they are pursuing their conservative agenda, but are being stymied by those evil socialists in Congress and the White House who are trying so hard to destroy this country "unless you send a conservative back to Congress - preferably me."
  • All in the interests of preventing Obama from being re-elected.
  • Because nobody else in this town will say it, I will.  They are mean spirited, low down, evil minded wealthy jerks who are only focused on getting what their masters want:
  • A Kleptocracy, well leavened with a theocratic yeast, blown to oversized proportions.

So, how am I doing so far?
