Basil Marceaux's Midterm Predictions
When you're looking for a solid prediction of today's results, to whom do you really want to turn? Nate Silver? Mark Halperin? The Cook Political Report? No. You turn to this campaign season's best candidate, Basil Marceaux. Marceaux told us the Republicans will win three seats, which is enough to control the House. (To be fair, before he said this he was discussing about the FEC, which he says controls the whole system, making our country a democracy, even though the Pledge of Allegiance says it's a republic.) After the jump, Basil makes his prediction in the Nevada Senate race.
Basil's right, though. The real question in these midterms is whether our country is still a democracy or if it goes back to being a republic. We all know that Democrats want it to be a democracy and Republicans say they want it to be a republic, but will the Republicans really come through on their campaign promise to honor the Pledge and turn this country back into one? That's the biggest issue facing the next Congress, and it's too bad Basil won't be there to address it. Sharron Angle may think it's more important for our government to follow the Bible, but it's much more important to follow the Pledge of Allegiance.
Basil also mentioned he has people taking "movie pictures" of him, something we've written about. He seemed pretty giddy about it, so we're happy for him. All we hope is that some Tennessee alt-weekly follows up to make sure those people pay him and don't just exploit him for his brilliant viral message about the perils of traffic-stop slavery.
Meanwhile, Basil wants you to know that he has released a song.
