Dick Morris out at Fox News

In a classic case of getting so far out on a limb that the end result becomes inevitable, political commentator and pollster Dick Morris is out at Fox News, according to Politico.

Not only did Morris repeatedly predict a Mitt Romney win in November, but insisted the election would be a “landslide” resulting from of a vote shift of “historic proportions.”

Taking his outlandish prognosticating even further, Morris said the Republican Party would pick up six seats in the U.S. Senate, regaining control by a 53-47 margin — the end result was that Democrats picked up two additional seats for a 53-45 advantage (the other two are independent seats).

Morris issued a mea culpa of sorts after the election, best captured by the Huffington Post headline: “Dick Morris Falls On His Sword For Wrong Predictions, Misses Sword.”

Morris has been absent from Fox News’ airwaves since a November 2012 appearance on “Hannity.”

Other recent changes at Fox News include the loss of former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin, who choose not to renew her contract with the network, and the addition of former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich as a contributor.

And, yes, for those who may be wondering, Fox News re-signed Karl Rove to a multi-year contract.

    Dick Morris gone?? Sarah Palin gone!! Oh, no! What is happening to Fox News? How can they let such intelligent, well-meaning, sound journalists go? Thank goodness we still have Hannity and Friends. They will keep us informed of all of the conspiracies, coming disasters, and failings of everything that Obama proposes or does. Thank goodness for that.

      I personally think that the network is sliding left. Look who they picked up…… Dennis Kusenich.

    Movin' right along in search of good times and good news,

    With good friends you can't lose,

    This could become a habit!

    Opportunity knocks once let's reach out and grab it (yeah!),

    Together we'll nab it,

    We'll hitchhike, bus or yellow cab it!

    (Cab it?)

    Fox should dump Hannity as well and replace him with an intelligent conservative along the lines of William F. Buckley. The figureheads such as Hannity & Palin do more harm than good for the conservative cause.

    Really? Take a look at the line up at CNN, MSNBC, and the other old-time networks, that all left wing hacks; for example they have not covered the Bengahzi disaster at all. Zero, nothing, zip. Aside from the late night "entertainment" of Hannity and O'Reilly, Fox has two of the most professional and balanced serious commentary programs around, specifically, Fox News Sunday (Chris Wallace) and Special Report (Bret Baier).

    Agree 100% Hannity is merely a pretty boy, and not too smart either. He kisses the butts of all the main line GOP elites who are killing what remains of the conservatives only political power. Once these GOP elites lead the GO to lose the House in 2014, they will be a party that is, at best, a Democrat lite thing that will be run over by the better organized, focused, aggressive, and determined extreme left wing of the Democrat party. Say what you will, but one has to admit that no one in the GOP can come close to BHO political skill and ruthless political judgement. He knows that politics is about power–nothing more, nothing less. He will give the GOP the coup de grace it deserves.
