Dick Morris, the man who wisely predicted a General Election battle between "Condi vs. Hillary" in 2008, has an explanation for why his prediction of a Romney landslide was almost exactly 180 degrees different from what happened last night. Two words. Chris Christie. Oh yeah. And the "ghettoizing" of the GOP. The problem certainly isn't that he may not know what he's talking about.

(Morris had predicted Romney would win the election by 325 electoral votes to 213).

I much more respect Michael Barone, who also predicted a Romney blowout but was a man about it and admitted he had made a bad prediction. (http://washingtonexaminer.com/barone-i-was-wrongwhere-it-counted/article/2512860).

An informal list of joke predictions that I can imagine Dick Morris making:

10) "My polling data tells me that Alex Rodriguez is currently the most admired person in New York."

9) "I couldn't see that all 50 states were going to vote on the same day. But I was right about Idaho."

8 "Yes, I did predict a Romney landslide. But I didn't say which year. Stay tuned!"

7) "My data tells me that in 2016 Dick Cheney will be the new darling of the Occupy Movement"

6) "My analysis shows me that in 2016, Wyoming will be the next huge battleground state"

5) "My data tells me that in 2013 the 8-track cassete cartridge will be back in style"

4) "I predict that President Obama will appoint Donald Trump to a cabinet post"

3) "It's not over, folks. My data shows Romney will win Florida and its 64 electoral votes."

2) "Mark my words, Nancy Pelosi will become the new leader of the TEA Party caucus."

1) "The Jacksonville Jaguars WILL win the Super Bowl against the New York Giants, 70-0"
