Humility Corner

I wrote in today's column that Kerry's spin victory was "tough to predict" because both sides had plenty of amunition after the debate. On reflection, I remember that some people did, in fact, predict it, even before the debate (Mike Murphy comes to mind). So I guess it wasn't that tough.

And speaking of my failure as a news cycle prognosticator: The "did Kerry cheat?" kerfuffle, which I mentioned in today's column as an example of something that might affect the race this week, is officially a non-story. UPDATE: Bill at INDCJournal has a wrap-up on the matter that's worth a read.

Rush Limbaugh just cited your AmSpec article on the debate and the polls. I told your dad.
