“Look George, you're not listening to what I'm saying. What I'm saying is that I don't just think Romney's going to lose, I know it.” The sharp twang of an elderly Texan accent cut through the airwaves and weakly connected with my car's antenna. Another voice, soothing and bemused, joined in, “Alright, so if what I'm understanding is correct, you're saying that you think President Barack Obama… is going to be re-elected… because an image of Dwight D. Eisenhower appeared on a secret government television screen that collects images of the future?” “Yes George, that's exactly what I'm saying. Have you ever heard of theoretical telemetrics? They've got a bunch of TVs down there, and I swear to you that I saw Dwight Eisenhower on one of 'em — only his face was covered in places, like with… like with shoe polish or some pipe smoke…” I turned down Coast to Coast AM and looked out the window. We'd been stuck in gridlock on Highway 101 for the better part of the last hour. It was getting late, and I was getting worried that we might not make it back to the city in time for Dub Mission's 16th anniversary. Serves me right — the freeways are murder on Labor Day weekend.
