Nancy Reagan’s interest in astrology is probably the most famous modern-day example in which politics meets astrology. The Washington Post archives reflect 51 articles since 1987 that contain the search terms “Nancy,” “Reagan” and “astrology,” and I doubt these articles are complimentary.
Thus, I was surprised to find that the Washington Post’s summary of the Senate vote on the Allard Amendment (discussed here) breaks down the vote by party, state, region, boomer status, gender, and astrological sign.
I can’t imagine why the Washington Post would break down Congressional votes by astrological sign … but I’m not surprised to learn that Barack Obama is a Leo.
