Family values, Republican style

It is a bit off topic but I found this very ironic and amusing.

Republicans today? No Stanley Cup prediction? Mine is up on my site.

Sens win the Cup 4 games to 2 over the Ducks.

Although in fairness Bill Clinton's affairs would outnumber the number of marriages of all the Republican candidates combined. :)

Spinks, I never thought I will say this about Republicans but they try to stay within their self-imposed moral limits. When they are bored by their spouse they go for a new and younger one and marry her/him. On the hand Democrats go for lot of fun and stay with the boring marriage. Go figure who is more moral.

Even though I lived in Ottawa for almost a decade, I have to go with the Ducks as the Sens won't be able to match their toughness in a long series. Ducks in 6.

This is hilarious. Shows what hypocrits the religious right can be. In the case of Guiliani it might cut him some slack since he is only the one so far who hasn't pandered to the religious right, still he is in a party that is controlled by them.

Spinks - the Democrats may not always be moral, but they don't pretend to be. They understand family matters are personal matters, not public ones and they should be dealt with at the individual level, not by the state.

That's unfortunate Miles because we all benefit from strong families, something ALL political parties would do well to remember.

Spinks - Yes we do benefit from strong families and that includes non-traditional ones such as common laws and same-sex couples. Something the Republicans seem unable to accept.

Predicting election outcomes and the like is easy and something I think I can get away with. Predicting sports is dangerous.

Sadly, I am tempted to agree with Scott... the long rest for the Sens coupled with the tenacity of the Ducks makes this a real challenge. However, I was very impressed with Emery last night so if he can get some support up front they may be able to pull through. I would be pretty disgusted to see the Anaheim (Mighty or not) Ducks win the Stanley Cup, almost enough to call for the NHL to be folded.

I'll say the Sens can win it in 5, theoretically, but if it gets to Game 6 the Sens only have about a 30% shot and if it goes to Game 7 congrats to the Californians.
