    I was glad to hear Rachel Maddow was getting better ratings than Sean Hannity but big money and Fox still support a whole orchestra of idiots. Here's a list I complied in a few minutes. When money wants talking head puppets I guess there are lots available.

    Edit: Our own PC should be on this list, but where?

    Pretentious idiots of the right

    Charles Krauthammer #1
    Dick Morris
    Karl Rove
    Laura Ingraham
    Mark Levin
    Michael Barone
    Michelle Malkin
    Neut Gingrich
    Peggy Noonan

    Mild nutcases of the right

    Bill O'Reilly
    Dennis Miller
    George Will
    Hugh Hewitt
    Matt Drudge
    Michael Medved

    Genuinely stupid and/or insane right wingnuts

    Anne Coulter
    Glenn Beck #1
    Michael Savage
    Rush Limbaugh
    Sarah Palin
    Sean Hannity

    Peggy may believe the rw rhetoric she says but her voice is also of the "sing songy AKA whiney" variety & it drives me up the wall to listen to her just as it does to listen to Bible Spice (Payland)

    I think the GOP will have a great chance to win in 2016. I wonder if the same chorus that denounced Nate Silver in 2012 will be singing the same song when/if he predicts a GOP win in 2016 as well?

    The GOP will be singing the praises of Nate Silver and his brilliant system.

    You’re right about the GOP winning in 2016, it will fall on democrats to be consistent and support Nate’s predictions regardless how gloomy.

    Even tho Nate made his bones in 2008, he arrived in 2012.

    Anyone who doesn't give a lot of weight to his analysis does so at their own peril.

    As of today, the GOP has stronger candidates than dems in 2016. They also will have an electorate tiring of eight years of Democratic rule

    But they also had the advantage in 2012 and blew it

    Will the Republicans endear themselves to Hispanics in the coming immigration debate? I doubt it
    Will they improve their standing with younger women? No way
    Will the leading GOP candidate avoid embracing issues like the 47% are lazy, banning abortion, increasing tax cuts for the wealthy? I doubt it

    Republicans will snatch defeat from an apparently easy victory in 2016
