Continuing a tradition begun last year, Big Al will once again favor you by foretelling the top political events for the coming year:
Jan 2012 – Barack Obama will shock the nation by announcing his resignation. Blaming the “burdens” of the office as the reason for his soaring golf handicap, he decides to step down and concentrate instead on qualifying for this year’s U.S. Open.
Feb 2012 – In his inaugural speech after being sworn in as the new leader of the free world, Joe Biden states “there’s no such thing as a free world…..or is that….a free lunch?”
Mar 2012 – During their 379th debate, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry agree to push for a 28th amendment to the constitution, which will state that the candidate with the best hair should be president.
Apr 2012 – President Biden, carrying on a century old tradition, throws out the first pitch of the new baseball season. The pitch is later nullified as it is learned Biden has tested positive for a performance enhancing drug.

Jun 2012 – Taking a page out of Teddy Roosevelt’s campaign exactly 100 years earlier, Sarah Palin announces she will run as the nominee of the resurrected “Bull Moose” party. Her advisers immediately talk her out of using a picture of a gutted moose as her campaign symbol.
Jul 2012 – President Biden, fearing the effects of the 28th amendment, has a complete new set of hair plugs installed.
