Mallard Fillmore predicts Kerry win: Editor & Publisher reports the conservative Mallard Fillmore comic is predicting John Kerry will be elected president. Of course, that doesn't mean cartoonist Bruce Tinsley wants that to happen:

"If weathermen forecast hurricanes, it doesn't mean they're in favor of hurricanes. A prediction is not an endorsement."

The sequence of strips, which began appearing in newspapers today, will continue for the next two weeks:

Tinsley creates Mallard Fillmore about two weeks before publication -- meaning that, every four years, he has to 'fudge' about which candidate might win. 'This time, I decided to go ahead a pick a winner,' he said."
