Humanity has a longstanding fascination with psychic animals. Paul the Octopus predicted the World Cup. An orangutan in Fresno predicted the Super Bowl (Steelers!). And now, a psychic cat has predicted the outcome of the current civil unrest in Cairo.
Stephen Colbert brought out a new member of the psychic-animal family on his show last night, the brilliantly named "Christiane Aman-Purr". After some initial hesitation, the cat indicated that the demonstrations are not a grassroots democratic uprising, but part of an "Islamic Power Grab" by extremist interests in the region.
I'm not always a fan of Colbert at his zaniest, but this was pretty funny. I also hope and trust that this — like the psychic predictions of all animals — is bullshit. (Go Packers!)
