Oh, well, that's it -- it's over. I just read this in The Washington Times:

Psychic dogs smell Bush victory

Psychic dogs belonging to actor Sylvester Stallone's mother have projected President George Bush the winner in November, the Los Angeles Times said Monday.

The paper said the dogs foresee the president will beat Democratic challenger John Kerry by 15 percent....

The Times said Mama Stallone's dogs correctly predicted in July 2000 Bush would capture the White House that year....

Which is true -- although the dogs also miss a few:

In October 2002, Jackie told MSNBC's Jeannette Walls that the Maryland sniper would strike again before being caught. The shooter, she added, was "a light-haired person, in his 20s or 30s, from a good family, though he's not that close to them."

Er, not exactly.

My marvelous, extraordinary, irrepressible, unpredictable Mother. Gifted with a facile mind, she has a vast array of talents, but without question her greatest talent is to foresee the future... [T]he truth is the only thing that matters to her, and to tell the truth is the only thing she knows how to do.

--Sylvester Stallone, from the back cover of Mom's book Starpower

I guess that settles that.
