George Bush: Propheteer

Iraq has, of course, never been about the monstrous failure in the here and now, but about how Bush will totally be judged a supergenius in the future. It's all about the legacy, and history will prove him right, bitchez.

In 1993, Major League Baseball decided to realign its leagues and introduce a wild-card playoff format. Team owners voted 27-1 in favor of the change. The lone dissenter was Texas Rangers co-owner George W. Bush. His comment after the vote: "I made my arguments and went down in flames. History will prove me right."

The result? The realignment and revised playoff format has been wildly successful and almost universally accepted, even by the sport's hidebound purists (including me).
Or not.
