2023 Predictions: The Absurd Arena – Useful Idiots Discussion Board
For the Useful Idiots who think they can talk back to a podcast.
Hey Useful Idiots,
In our end of 2021 episode, Katie and Matt made predictions for 2022. These included:
Democrats will keep the Senate
The US will go to war with Russia, using Ukraine as proxy
Queen Elizabeth will die
Will Smith will slap Chris Rock at an awards ceremony (we didn’t know which)
Boris Johnson will resign as Prime Minister, giving the job to Liz Truss for a few months, who would also resign, sending the job to Rishi Sunak, who Joe Biden would refer to as Rasheed Sanook
And Nancy Pelosi will kiss Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the same spot where the QAnon Shaman once stood
It was a modest list of predictions, and we think we were pretty accurate.
But now comes 2023, with its yet unknown twists and turns. Will this year be turbulent like the past few? Boring and forgettable like others? World-altering like 2020? Will we succumb to all-out nuclear war, have another global-collapse, break out in civil war, or, perhaps worst of all, watch more January 6 hearings?
We want to know your predictions for the new year. But remember, this is the absurd arena, which means you can talk about anything you want: the effects of the incoming (but just as terrible) congress, the new wars our leaders will have us fight in, who will die, who will survive, the movies that will win awards, the teams that will lose championships, the next big celebrity breakup, and whether you’ll finally discover what your neighbor keeps in that scary, dark shed.
As usual, the best comments and questions will be read on the show. Here’s the prompt:
What are you predictions for 2023? What do you want Katie and Aaron to predict for the new year?
