Yankeefan (pictured above shortly after disposing of Qaddafi) wants to know if I’m willing to bet on this election. When last we wagered, it was over the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare: He predicted it would be upheld (6-3); I said it would be rejected (5-4). Basically it was a push. But I was happy to treat him to a luxurious bottle of Rioja and concede defeat like a gentleman.
Now Yankeefan, who has professional ties to a company that says Romney is winning this election by five points, stares into the abyss once more, and laughs like Howard Roark. I am happy to seize the moment and celebrate his upcoming plunge into despair. I accept the honor of an honorable bet and wager that, indeed, the better man will be elected president of these United States on Nov. 6 or I’m buying the next evening of drinks. And yes: The better man in every way is Willard Mitt Romney. I foresee the American voters returning to their senses. And if not I am going to need some good long drinks anyway.
