Having recently figured out how to use the precognitive functions on the Eye of Thundera, I was using it last night to browse alternate futures. To my horror, I learned that there is a 12% possibility that Senator McCain will win the election and be inaugurated, only to die on January 22nd. This will, of couse, mean that Sarah Palin becomes president for the overwhelming majority of his term. What happens after that…well, let’s just say that Katie Couric will be only the first to be purged.
How this can be averted I cannot say, as those accursed Thundercats broke in and took the Sword of Omens back before I could finish browsing the future histories. But given my knowledge of the possibility, I feel oblgied to warn the other American Dopers. We must be prepared to retreat and regroup.
Fortunately I’ve located a portal to Brigadoon, which, happily, will be accessible from the last week of January. I’ll be bringing the Scotch.
Who’s with me? And what do you have to contribute to the refugee supplies?
