Pundits missed mark in predicting Red wave

The final election results are not in fully. What we do know is there was no Red tidal wave as many  promised.

Abraham Lincoln said, “Judge Douglas cannot fool the people: you may fool people for a time; you can fool a part of the people all the time; but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”

The old fashioned information outlets that limited themselves to  “the Reps have this”, “the Dems have that”, and “there are guesses both ways but this is what’s being said”, were up front about what they did and did not know.

Such conclusions as they drew were based on relevant fact and not “tit for tat thinking”, “grand conspiracies drawn from thin air”, or “the excuse of the day.”

So the election’s moral is already final. When you find someone giving you the bum’s rush to fool and persuade you, change channels.

Have faith in our country.
