Least Accurate Prediction

And the winner is...Predictions!

The nominees for Least Accurate Prediction are:
  • More Like Democrats (Post) - Mallard's assertion about the Republican Party proved slightly wide of the mark, after extremists took over.
  • Right Wing Extremists (Post) - Less than a month later, a Right-Wing Extremist gunned down a man in a church lobby.
  • Lousy TV (Post) - Later that summer, Cable News was wall-to-wall showing astroturf mobs screaming about Death Panels at Town Hall meetings.
  • Predictions (Post) - Mallard reviews all of his predictions which have come true, as long as you ignore the fact that the Government is not running companies, that 95% of us got tax breaks, and that the Enemies List is entirely manufactured.

Ooohhhh, it's tough. Between "Republicans are just too nice and easygoing!" and "2 out of 10! My success rate for prescience is downright scary!" I also like "They're out to get me because I BRING YOU the TRUTH! And they're out to get YOU because YOU READ ME!", but that's not so much a prediction as a cold reading ("I see by your palm that you are generous and outgoing, yet misunderstood and secretive! Ten dollars, please."). So I went with the numbers: "I'm a 20% prophet!!"

Well, his bemaoning the slander of poor innocent put-upon right-wing extremists sure has been borne out, hasn't it?

Right wing extremists, because it's still happening.

Well, the right-wing extremists actually happened. That's why I'm voting for More Like Democrats. The exact opposite happened.

It's hard to separate Tinshleys' outright lying about what has happened (e.g. about gov takeovers) from his inaccurate predictions. I went for "more like Democrats" because it was so hilariously wrong without being actually untruthful.

Besides, the idea that McCain was the most "moderate" of anything is hilarious.
