I called it!

Unnamed Republican official, August 2008:

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democratic Party’s vice presidential candidate in 2000 and now an independent who is one of John McCain’s strongest supporters, will speak at the Republican National Convention, an official said.

Lieberman will deliver a speech when Republicans gather in St. Paul, Minn., to nominate McCain for president, a party official told The Associated Press today. The official requested anonymity because a formal announcement had yet to be made.

Me, November 2006:

In fact, I’ll go one further. I predict that Joe Lieberman will speak at the 2008 Republican National Convention. You can write that down.

Take that, hypothetical people who thought I was wrong!

  1. There’s only one explanation: the unnamed Republican official is you.

  2. Don’t be ridiculous. I have a name. Therefore, it can’t be me.

    Boy, I’ve really got egg on my face now.

    I should never have questioned the prognostication of the great Code Master General.

  4. So in a related note, Obama took Joe Biden as a running mate. The same Joe Biden that polled lower than Stephen Colbert in South Carolina.

  5. To be fair, wasn’t Stephen Colbert near the median of that poll? Sure the median was about 2-3%, but still. The DNC made a mistake not accepting his application to run in the primary.

  6. Paul;

    If Liberman speaks at the 2008 RNC, I owe you a Coke.

    Looks like I lost.

    I’ll buy you another if you can reference the quote above without resorting to an internet search.

  7. Mark: I have no idea.
