Today’s announcement by the McCain campaign of the selection of Sarah Palin as the Republican Vice-Presidential Nominee reminds this news reader of CMC’s Prof. Pitney’s prediction back in November of last year. Granted, Prof. Pitney went 1/4 (incorrectly choosing Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton to grace the tops of the tickets and Evn Bayh as the Dems. VP) still, it is laudable that CMC’s resident prognosticator foretold of the selection of one of the darkest horses of modern history. (CJ's note: In fact, just 23 hours ago, he thought it was a "tossup between Pawlenty and Romney.")
Claremont Conservative covered Prof. Pitney’s Picks here and though our editorializing at the time disagreed with the call we say kudos to Jack Pitney for being one of the few to foresee the selection of Sarah Palin!
We are not the first to note Prof. Pitney’s picking prowess (please forgive us for being alliteration happy, but it seemed to easy to pass up) and we offer our congrats, and eagerly await the CMC PR department’s announcement.
