It’s fun to position yourself as a political expert, but if it comes to pass that you don’t know what you’re talking about, shouldn’t there be some shame attached? Some penalty? Maybe a one-year suspension from political writing? Frankly, I like the idea of a Punditry Prison. Your sentence would be based on the extent of your errors, and repeat offenders would be treated more harshly. Of course, that would mean a life sentence for Bob Shrum. Without possibility of parole.
