The "Crystal Ball Award" goes to...

... Representative Ray LaHood (R-"Predicting" the Future).

LaHood on 1 December:
U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood held his thumb and forefinger slightly apart and said, "We're this close" to catching Saddam Hussein.

Once that's accomplished, Iraqi resistance will fall apart, said the five-term Republican congressman from Peoria who serves on the House Intelligence Committee.

A member of The Pantagraph editorial board -- not really expecting an answer -- asked LaHood for more details, saying, "Do you know something we don't?"

"Yes I do," replied LaHood.
Saddam was captured on 14 December.

Is LaHood talented... or what?

We'll see if his other prediction comes true.
