ABC News - Dark Age Kookiness Reporting

The ABC News website is dipping it's foot into the pool of woo again. Aw hell, who am I kidding? They jumped headfirst into it with this article:

Bush in Retrograde; Obama, McCain Rising
Astrologers Predict Election Day, Hillary's Senate Departure, and Bloomberg on November Ticket
In May, seven astrologers at the United Astrology Conference in Denver predicted that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. would win the White House in November, citing Saturn's opposition to Uranus on Election Day as a celestial occurrence that pits a stodgy planet against one of rebellion, resulting in transformation and social upheaval.

I held out hope to the very end that they might present just an inkling that some people think astrology is crap. But no, they like the woo. It's so warm and squishy that they can't bring themselves to let it go.
