Magic 8-Ball calls the election for Pawlenty, Bachmann, Ellison
So we decided to leave the prognostications to the most impartial source we know.
City Pages: In the gubernatorial race, Mike Hatch had a consistent lead over Tim Pawlenty in practically every poll released in October. But in the past week, Pawlenty has seemingly climbed back into the race on the back of the E-85/"Republican whore" flap. Will the governor's momentum propel him to a win?
Magic 8-Ball: CONCENTRATE AND ASK AGAIN.
City Pages: Well, okay. Is Pawlenty going to win a second term?
Magic 8-Ball: ASK AGAIN LATER.
City Pages: It appears Michele Bachmann has built up a healthy lead in her Sixth District race against Patty Wetterling. Wetterling seemed to be pulling even a month or so ago, but she's receded since. What's done her in? Is it the slimy, implausible ads that accuse Bachmann of being a big taxer and a coddler of criminals?
Magic 8-Ball: REPLY HAZY. TRY AGAIN.
City Pages: Did the ads run by Patty Wetterling and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee hand the race to Bachmann?
Magic 8-Ball: IT IS CERTAIN.
Magic 8-Ball: WITHOUT A DOUBT.
City Pages: Last question, one more time: Will Tim Pawlenty be re-elected?
Magic 8-Ball: It IS DECIDEDLY SO.
