I just don't see why - I mean, he only predicted that Romney would win all electoral votes except for Illinois!  How could that been seen as harmful to one's job?

It's true, this network has no Dick.

The nicest or best thing anyone can say about Dick Morris is that he's useless.  Saying he's anything better than that is a lie.

Come on FoxNews, this pathetic purge of your worst derpers isn't going to change anything. Gut the Fox & Friends cast, and cancel Hannity and then we're getting somewhere.

Who said it was a purge? There might be someone worse about to get the call-up.
 
2013-02-06 01:08:51 AM
well...Morris really DID drop the ball.  horribly bad and in public.  then doubled down on his stupidity...so yeah, it's not at all surprising he got fired.  I mean at that point there was nothing gonna save his job.

I give it 2 weeks before he's given his own show over at The Blaze, where every show will have a hooker sucking on his toes while he fellates the angry old men watching from home.

Where Dick Morris settles, only oblivion will be his companion.  The corruption in his soul will slowly leach into the soil, leaving it dusty and devoid of life.  Trees will wither and die, their dessicated limbs reaching pathetically to the sky, begging for the lightning bolt that will finally free them from their torment.  But the bolt will never come, for the rain itself will avoid this place, nor will the warming rays of the sun ever again fall upon this shattered earth.  Neither the birds of the sky nor the worms of the earth nor the mighty hunters of the forest will approach this cursed place.  Color itself will seem to flee the environs.  Where once bright flowers and green grass prevailed, now will nothing be left but a dirty, fathomless grey that pierces a man to his very soul.  Travelers will pass by and suddenly feel the cold tendrils of infinity wrap around their spines.  Shuddering, they will wrap their arms around their shivering bodies and hurry away, praying that whatever vile evil infests this profane place will remain trapped there out, of sight of the civilized world.  This is the fate of Dick Morris and all of his kind.

If every conservative blowhard political pundit lost their job after making ridiculously incorrect predictions, the unemployment rate would quintuple overnight.

Dick Morris is such a slimy worm. One of Bill Clinton's trusted advisors, he turned coat and shills for the other side now.

He was so much better when he was just getting his toes sucked.

Whenever I see Tagg's name the only last name I can think of to go with it is Palin. Just what is it with Pseudo-celebrity right wing politicians and giving their kids stupid names? Because that's a stupid farking name. And the 2008 Election cycle was full of stupid farking names, and I like I hear right wing types complain about how hard it'll be to find little shaniqua a job but don't hear shiat when it comes to idiotic names like those.

I'm guessing they've decided that they need to reign in the megaderp a bit.
There's a rift in the party between the establishment (Rove's faction) and the Tea Party.
Ailes has obviously decided to lean towards the establishment.

Yeah, but the megaderp content is still there in full force.  It's just rich megaderp.

Which is a key point, I think. Rove has a little traction left, and perhaps the other dismissals are but a warning to him, to tighten it up. However, I failed to imagine how long the UltraTeaParty derp would actually persist, so I'm a poor predictor myself; I'm just thinking Fox might be trying to pull back inward to their core competencies.

/Whatever those might be

Bingo.  Both Palin and Morris were outspoken Tea Party supporters.  Rove is backing a new SuperPAC focused on keeping Tea Party candidates from winning primaries since they tend to be unelectable.  It's pretty obvious who Fox News is realigning with.

The Tea Party is the result of a continuous rhetoric of fear and outrage intended to motivate conservative voters, but the monster grew too big and got out of control.  Now it has to be put down; that's all this is.  Problem is, the rift is between the right and the far-right, so now we're seeing a Jack Johnson-John Jackson dynamic forming in the GOP.

I think you'll see less social issues being pushed (although they will still have them) and more fiscal/foreign policy propaganda coming out of them.

Even Fox realizes they don't need that many white-males-in-their-60's commentators. Might as well cut the most crazy one who doesn't have a clue.

He'll have a new job promoting Clinton Conspiracies online very shortly. WND, Blaze, etc, will eat that shiat up.

Basically they will go back to concentrating on their core mission of enriching the rich and screwing the poor and middle class, and their attempt at getting into the Guinness World Records by being the first country have gone to war with every other country in the world.

Not true. One day he will provide an essential and vital source of nutrients for various and sundry bacteria, insects, and plant matter.


He would probably opt for cremation just to avoid that. Because he's that much of a dick.

Seriously.

I bet they reboot him if Hilary runs for prez. He has insider dirt on the Clintons since wayyy back. Him and Kristol launched their careers barking about Whitewater and the Rose Law Firm.

Face it folks, Fox is putting more liberals on in reaction to the election results. Link
 
2013-02-06 08:23:22 AM
How far off was his Superbowl prediction? They fired him instantly for that, not something over three months ago.

Morris is done as a main go to TV guy.  That won't stop him from offering his services to every Tom Dick and Hannity show, so you can still expect something, but being canned from Fox is a sign.

Don't feel bad for the guy.  There are overseas speaking engagements that need people just like him.  And I'm sure his services for advising House members will still be used by a few rapey Repubs come next election season.
