During the week, I get a daily email from the Huffington Post letting me know what their better-known bloggers are posting. Usually, it's predictable faux liberal drivel. Some of it is funny, some of it is funny unintentionally.
And then there's Lawrence O'Donnell, darling of MSNBC and occasional guest on "The McLaughlin Group." It was on the latter that O'Donnell made the bold prediction that Karl Rove was the source of the leaking of Valerie Plame's name to the press. I remember it vividly because it was delivered with his signature blend of arrogance and faux liberal venom.
Then, Richard Armitage came out and said he was the one who leaked information to Robert Novak. Normally, this would disqualify someone from being a credible prognosticator, but not to the faux left. Because of his clear political leanings, anything he says is to be believed as gospel to the faux left.
Well, O'Donnell's at it again. Putting on his Karnac the Magnificent turban, he made the following prediction on his blog at the Huffington Post.
Libby is guilty. And he's going to be found guilty. The jury might not convict him on all counts, but he has no chance of surviving the perjury count that was proved beyond a reasonable doubt with Tim Russert's testimony.
Previously, O'Donnell also predicted that John Kerry would have no trouble winning the 2004 election, there would be six or seven indictments against Rove, and that Joe Lieberman would be persuaded to drop out of the Senate race last year.
With his stellar record so far, how can we not believe him?
That's the thing I love best about the faux left. No matter how many times they're proven wrong on a subject, they maintain their intellectual superiority and look at you funny if you disagree with them, as though you're the one who has the problem. But it does provide endless hours of entertainment to those of us who are a bit more skeptical.
So, keep making predictions, Lawrence! A broken clock is right twice a day, and eventually you'll figure out what that's like...
