How my guesses fared in 2014

If you recall (HA), I made some guesses earlier in the year.

Here's how I did:

  1. Steve King won and the Republicans did much better than I thought.
  2. The Cubs won 73, which is slightly better than expected.
  3. There wasn't a filibuster.
  4. I was far too conservative here.
  5. The rest of Sherlock was awesome. Not as awesome as it could conceivably be, but I enjoyed it a lot.
  6. Bitcoin may have stabilized at some point, but it's still a comedy of errors and drops quite a bit, seemingly at random. The IRS ruled that it is treated as property, not as, say, "foreign currency". However, I was definitely correct that it's technolibertarian nonsense.

As for my hopes, #2, the Medicaid expansion, did expand a bit. I have not one good thing to say about opposing Medicaid expansion.

And David Brooks is still a wanker.
