    a lot of people said 'well, if he's wrong, he can just point to the polls or his model and say well, the model was off' and not take the blame himself.

    not true at all. this model, these predictions had his name on them. if he was way off and romney won, his name would have been tarnished. this isn't some karl rove or dick morris type who can just spin around and be back on fox predicting a gooper landslide 4 years later and be taken seriously.

    he put his name on the line.

    anyone born after the McDLT has no business stomping around acting punk rock
