Anyone who looked at Intrade should have known that Obama was likely to win. He had been ahead of Romney on Intrade from the day Romney got the nomination.
But the folks at Fox News refused to believe Intrade.
These were the same neoconservatives who had blocked Ron Paul from the Fox-televised debate in early 2008. The other networks had previously invited him to debate. Fox News was the first to close the door. Then they all did.
That made Jay Leno angry. He invited Paul to be on his show.
Paul came back four years later and did far better.
The people at Fox News simply don’t understand American politics.
Jon Stewart skewered them the day after the election.
This is a classic. It could not have happened to a more deserving bunch of blind people. It was blind man’s bluff right up until the bitter end.
When you provide canon fodder for Stewart, you are in trouble.
They blamed non-whites for the loss to “voters who want things.” Apparently they had not been informed of the outcomes of the presidential elections of 1932, 1936, 1940, 1944, 1948, 1960, 1964, 1976, 1992, 1996, and 2008.
These neocons fired Judge Napolitano before the election.
These people are really, truly out of touch.
