Washington Redskins Presidential Conspiracy

0927-ROMNEY-VA-sized.jpg_full_600

When the Washington Redskins football team wins the game before the election, the President’s political party stays in control of the White House. When the Redkins lose the game before the election, the President’s political party loses control. This pattern has played since 1936 and statistically is not random chance — it is more likely an inside joke from those who rig national elections.

Since the Redskins lost this Sunday to the Carolina Panthers (21-13) that would mean Mitt Romney would be the next President of the United States of America? Think this is a joke? No. 17 times in a row is no joke.
