Are you convinced that you already know the outcome of the upcoming Presidential election?

Have you been flapping your gums nonstop since the primaries regarding how the candidate on the other side has no chance?

Do you have more than five posts on the GWB thread that aren't grub related?

Well then, it is time to put up or shut up.

I am willing to bet that I know who is going to win the next Presidential election, and if I am wrong I promise not to post on SI for an entire year. The year will begin immediately upon my candidate's concession of defeat, and my last post will be a hearty congratulations to the other side.

For the record, I predict that John Kerry will defeat George W. Bush and become our next President.

So what do you say, bigmouths of SI. I'm talking to both Bush and Kerry supporters. If enough of us take the pledge, then no matter who wins SI will be a much more peaceful and probably more investment oriented site for a year. So, it is win-win as far as I can tell.

Losers can have iHub.

By making a post to this thread, and making a prediction, you agree that if you are wrong you will refrain from posting on SI for a year following the concession of your candidate.

Good luck.
