The First, Wildly Inaccurate Taste is Free
Back in late October, financial mag Barron's released their predictions for the results of the 2006 midterms. While most Barron's content is subscriber-only, they opened this piece up to the unwashed mooching masses, so that we could look upon their work and know our foolish mistakes -- scandals, corruption, wars; none of that held a candle to cold, hard cash. They predicted that the GOP, due solely to their superior fundraising prowess, would hold both houses of Congress.
This weekend came their mea culpa. Back behind the subscriber wall. "Chalk up my muffed election call to user error" goes the lede. Thank god we can't read the rest of it.
