Dewey Defeats Biden

“Have you seen the polls? Everyone beats Joe Biden in next year’s election, even you! OK, maybe not you, but everyone else does. That means Republicans will reclaim the White House, and everything will be great again, right? Not so fast. The weird thing about elections is you actually have to have them before you can determine their outcome. I know it’s unfortunate and quite the pain, but those are the rules. Never spike the football on the 5-yard line, as the saying goes. Sadly and hilariously, history is riddled with people who did just that. The most famous non-football spiking was by the Chicago Daily Tribune in 1948 with their ‘Dewey Defeats Truman’ headline.” (11/19/23)
