New Hamphire: Hillary Wins, Pundits & Pollsters Humiliated

Huge irony: the ad at the top of the Drudge Report (captured just a few minutes ago) asks “Is Hillary finished.”

And that’s what all the pollsters and pundits were asking, with the usual answer being “yes.”

People who place these ads have a bit of trouble keeping up with the conventional wisdom. That of yesterday may be the polar opposite of today’s.

Wow, I think I might actually agree with you about something.

As I was listening to Medved and Jonah Goldberg yucking it up today about the demise of the Clinton candidacy, it occurred to me that maybe they should wait until more than %37 percent of the precincts have reported.

The problem is that nobody in the pundit class is ever humiliated, much less held accountable. You don't need to ever get anything right once you are in the circle. And it is abundantly clear to me that most pundits, from both the left and the right, really have no idea what they are talking about %95 of the time. What are Monica Crowley's qualifications to be giving explanations and making predictions? Or Chris Matthews'? It is amazing to me that these folks have somehow managed to make careers out of simply making stuff up.
