Pundits who live in glass houses ...

Back in August, talking head James C. Moore ― co-author of the best-seller, “Bush’s Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential" ― was utterly convinced that Rick Perry was unbeatable. In an op-ed for CNN ("Why Rick Perry is headed to the White House") he wrote: "America is beginning the process of electing another Texan to be president. ... Perry's coyote-killer good looks, $2,000 hand-tooled cowboy boots, supernova smile and Armani suits, combined with podium skills to embellish the mythology of Texas, all will create a product Americans will want to believe and buy." As Perry himself put it last night: oops. Talk about getting it exactly wrong. The trouble with the Internet for pundits is that the Internet never forgets. That's probably a good thing.
