Punditry,  Vote 2012

Worst pundit of 2012

Here in the US, the consensus seems to be that it’s former political consultant Dick Morris of Fox News. His wildly inaccurate prediction of the outcome of last month’s presidential election simply tops a list of boneheaded forecasts.

An honorable mention goes to Rush Limbaugh, who also predicted (on election day) a Romney victory, adding, “I could be proven tonight to be so wrong and so all wet that nobody should be listening to me.”

He said it. I didn’t. It would be nice to believe that some Dittohead, somewhere, took his advice.

Of course a number of our own Harry’s Place commenters expressed serene assurance that Obama was electoral toast. They should feel free to explain why they were wrong.
