NEWSFLASH: Riley Gets Things Wrong

So basically, this is me saying I suck at this . . .

So I am human, and a political pundit. As such there are LOTS of opportunities for me to get things wrong. It is just humbling to get two things wrong in a week. First of all, Anthony Weiner admitted to sending lewd pictures to a handful of women on twitter, so my previous prediction on #weinergate? Mostly wrong. Thanks Rep. Weiner! Sigh.

The other thing is Doug Ericksen jumped into the County Executive race. I would have figured with Christian warrior Jack Louws already in the trenches and Doug just winning a Senate seat, he would have stayed put, but apparently ambition wins out over previous commitments and he is running for the Executive seat.

So count that as Reality: 2, Riley Sweeney: 0. Unfortunately, that is the price I face for making a prediction or two, seeing them all unravel before my eyes.

Stay tuned for later this week I will be live-blogging from the County Courthouse as the last couple of stragglers file for public office.



  1. Don’t be so hard on yourself, Riley. You said Weiner would be fine “Unless something else big breaks.” That happened.
