Most embarassing McClatchy election prediction

McClatchy columnist Joe Galloway gets the award for the most absurd pre-election prediction. Two weeks before the election he predicted McCain would be blown out by 15 to 20 points:
"Here's a prediction for you, for them: McCain and Palin will go down to defeat by 15 to 20 points..."

The actual margin was about 6 points. Galloway's 15-to-20 point prediction tells you he's spent way too much time hanging out at McClatchy's water cooler instead of hanging out with middle America.

One look at that complexion and the bulbous nose, and it is pretty clear that it isn't the water cooler this guy hangs out at. Hepatic encephalopathy is almost certain.
