    Newspundits are the Dopplerless weathermen of our time.

    If the pundits truly had that much power we would be voting for the inevitable Clinton instead of Obama.  They have been more wrong than right this election year for the simple reason that they are no longer the only game in town.  People are exposed to many more news sources and as a result have a tendency to make up their own minds instead of being told what to think.  

    Look at the last debate - Pundits split or think it's a tie, more voters say Obama kicked ass. Forget about the influence these blowhards have anymore.  They blew it in 2006 and they have been blowing it so far this year.  Very few are trusting them anymore in the decision making process and that's a good thing.

    Do you ever get the feeling that the only reason we have elections is to find out if the polls were right? - Robert Orben
