FOX Is A Mess...The Right Wing Has Learned Nothing...We Will Be Golden... [View all]

Prior to the election I studiously avoided FOX. But now that my foes have been vanquished I am tuning in to get my schadenfreude fix and revel in my enemy's misery.

I tuned in the O'ReillyFactor and he had on noted failed pundits and pollsters including Dick Morris and Scott Rasmussen. There were no questions to Rasmussen about his horrid polling this season including picking the wrong winner in NC, FL, VA, and NH, and in the entire nation. Ras essentially said the electorate looked like America, a diverse one , and nobody expected that. Well, nobody on the right expected that because you , Gallup, and most of the other right leaning pollsters were releasing results that suggested the electorate would look more like 1912 than 2012. You know, lots of white folks, and not many Latinos, Asians, and African Americans.

Dick Morris actually said pretty much the same thing... The man is evil but he's not a fool...Or maybe he's both...Who knows... I think he told his right wing audience who consists largely of innumerate goobers who long for for an America that is no more and never really was that America was not going to re-elect the black fella because they pay for his hookers and that's what they want to hear.

Larry Sabato was on... He did a so so job in pre-election analysis. He had O winning 290-248. He would have been more accurate if he embraced the Bayesian models built by his colleagues in political science like Drew Linzer and Simon Jackman. He tried to tell O'Reilly that the Republicans had a demographic problem that was real and threatened the viability of the party at the national level. O'Reilly's retort was the economy will tank and the Democrats will be finished...That was his analysis. When challenged on it he offered no evidence beyond "Trust me."

How did that jackwagon get a graduate degree from the John F Kennedy School Of Government at Harvard? Because he was a celebrity?

The bottom line is the right is still living in their bubble and that means we're golden.

*From memory. It might be worse.
