Among her forecasts are the death of Saddam Hussein by the end of this year, a Democratic president elected in 2004, and the possible eruption of the volcano at Yellowstone within the next 3-4 months. "I think the whole thing is gonna blow," she said.

Thanks, Syl. Lotta good you're doing...

Well, let's see how well she did...

"The death of Saddam Hussein by the end of this year"? I'd say that, at the time, there was about a 50/50 chance of him being found alive or dead, so, a pretty reasonable gamble, but a miss.

A Dem elected in 2004? Again, 50/50, a good wager, but another miss.

"Possible" eruption of Yellowstone? Not really a prediction, since either way, she is right.

...why do people actually believe these crackpots again?

I may be wrong, but I thought I'd heard something on how the "Saddam in a hole" bit was PR, and that he was nearby but not in the hole. I didn't pay attention at the time, since it was not important to me, but IF it is true, that might negate the psychics claim that he was found in a hole.

Re Sylvia Brown, I heard her on Coast to Coast (yeah, I'm a glutton for morons), and nearly drove off the road from rolling my eyes when she said we didn't land on the moon "and not just because my guide told me". Definitely rubber-room time.
