Because I have to say something about it

Last night, I saw the rarest of rarities: a Super Bowl where the game was more exciting than the commercials (which were pretty damn lame, granted, but the game was exciting). Can we see another rarity, a Presidential election run on issues in which the better candidate actually wins?

Of course, here's a flashback to 2004: "now that the Red Sox have finally won the World Series, can another Bostonian break a miserable losing streak and become President?" And we know how that turned out. Moral: sports success does not translate to world affairs. Often, it doesn't even translate to more sports success (hence my bold prediction that the Giants will NOT be in the Super Bowl next year).
