Like Sarah Palin before him Dick Morris has been culled from the pack of partisan pundits for being too stupid even for Fox News.

"Damn you facts and logic!"
Courtesy of Deadline Hollywood:

 Long time contributor Dick Morris will no longer be a talking head on Fox News Channel. “His contract is up and we will not be renewing it, ” a spokesperson for the news network confirmed today. A perpetual presence during last year’s Presidential election, Morris has not been seen on FNC since November 12. During the battle between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney, the former Clinton advisor had been strongly predicting a big loss for the incumbent. Morris didn’t waste much time moving on from FNC. Earlier today, he announced via Twitter that he would be making an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Wednesday. That will be the first time the conservative has appeared on CNN since 2002. Morris isn’t the only big name contributor departure from the top rated news network. FNC recently parted ways with former GOP VP candidate Sarah Palin after three years.

Morris of course famously predicted a Romney landslide which proved to be perhaps the most inaccurate prediction imaginable. After the election he was such an embarrassment that Sean Hannity had him on for a public spanking (“People are furious with you right now.”), during which Morris tried desperately to backpedal and blamed the outcome of the election on Hurricane Sandy and the fact that the media stopped covering Benghazi.

What I found interesting is that Karl Rove, who made a total ass out of himself on election night by not allowing Fox to call the election for Obama until well after every other network had, has been re-signed to a multi-year deal.

I guess being wrong at Fox News is not the real issue, they are wrong all of the time, but the REAL problem is being both wrong AND stupid. And who was more wrong and stupid than Dick Morris and Sarah Palin?


  1. CNN wants Dick

      and possibly Falin Palin. double ewwwww!

      Horray...CNN wants a dick and a boob!

    Karl Rove simply wields too much influence and power within the GOP and since Fox News is an appendage of the GOP, Ailes had to resign him. Be afraid, folks, be afraid. Rove has a big bag of tricks to throw at the Democrats and he doesn't like losing.

    1. Virginia Voter9:22 AM

      Karl Rove has a a bag of old, moldy, stale tricks that no one is falling for anymore. He wasted $300 million of his billionaire donors money on shitty tee vee ads that were poorly produced, had no narrative, and made zero impact on the presidential and senatorial elections. Turdblossom made a fool of himself on election night, when he thought his vote rigging in Ohio and Florida would work again. Let him pontificate all he wants on Fox to the dwindling numbers of crazies who watch that wretched network, and scam more of them out of their money, while the rest of the country mocks them. Roves reign as the architect was over 8 years ago, he just refuses to acknowledge it.

    2. Anonymous10:23 AM

      Rove: ¨Give me three hundred million dollars and I will hand you Obama´s head on a platter.¨

      That BS won´t work again. Fox re-signed Rove because viewers gloried in his meltdown.

      He is the new Sarah.

    3. Anonymous2:29 PM

      Yes, Turd blossom's meltdown was epic!

  3. Could it be that Fox is now trying to appear more legitimate? Are the jokes at their expense motivating them to at the very least, dump the nut jobs and whackos?

    I'm not saying they'll ever be legitimate or fair or balanced. They still have Hannity and O'Reilly, et al.

    I'm just saying some of this looks like window dressing to try to appear less buffoonish.

    1. Anonymous7:50 AM

      They can try but the damage is done. Hiding elements like Sarah will not work. It is not enough. The GOP is still pretending Sarah was legit. Big mistake.

      There is a reason Sarah Palin was mentioned during the Democratic convention and not the Republican. There is a reason Sarah Palin was mentioned by VP Biden during the debate and Ryan refused to touch it.

      We live in the information age. No one will forget Sarah Palin. The Democrats won´t let us. The only way the GOP can even begin to heal is to admit Sarah Palin is a fraud. Until then the majority of voters will continue to view the GOP as not trustworthy.

    2. Leland8:22 AM

      7:50, that's a START, but there is so much crap coming from the mouths - and hearts - of the Repubes that any sane or intelligent or educated person will STILL avoid the party.

      Things like "a woman's body can shut itself down" or "legitimate rape" or.... There really isn't enough room here at IM to mention all the problems you guys seem to have.

      I won't even get into your attempts to force religious doctrine on a secular nation!

      In fact, all that sort of shit is what forced ME to leave the Repubes!

      (BTW, everyone, I hope everyone knows that RePUBes should sound like PUBic! since they are all the time trying to screw us!)

    3. They don't want to be responsible for losing the election again for the GOP. So I'd guess that they're not going to be any more legitimate, just a lot more sneaky. And Dick and Sarah are the opposite of subtle.

  4. Anonymous7:11 AM

    Sarah has her own channel on Facebook TV ...

    1. Anonymous10:45 AM

      WTF is Facebook TV? lol

      Is that supposed to be a step-up from Fox News? I guess Glenn Beck said, "You're crazy as hell if you think I'd really hire you, Sarah Lou!"

    The Dick and the Bitch, are fraternal twins that were separated at birth.

    "And who was more wrong and stupid than Dick Morris and Sarah Palin?"
    Answer: Sean Hannity

  7. Anonymous7:35 AM

    Slapping Morris around is okay, because he once worked for the Clintons. They spin it as a ¨Take that, Hillary!¨ gesture.

    Sarah has lost her looks. That is the main reason Fox fired her. She is no longer presentable for the network.

    Sarah appeared on election night wearing an 80s wig and 80s frosted lipstick. In her mind she believes clothes make her look younger. She thought she looked the same as she did in the 80s - 30 years younger.

    In the most recent sighting, Sarah looked twenty-five years older than Todd.

      My eyes originally read your opening words as "Morris sleeping around." Talk about EEEWW!!

    Dick Morris is a lecherous, depraved, hateful carpetbagger with a sketchy past and no real audience for his lies and delusions of grandeur. Sarah Palin is different in that she wears a wig. Two birds of a feather failing together.

    1. Anonymous10:48 AM

      Dick Morris is a toe-sucker. Sarah is a Koch-sucker. Otherwise, they're just the same---a couple of grifting liars whose act has grown stale.

  9. Anonymous8:00 AM

    Here's Lawrence's comment on the non-renewals...

    O'Donnell seemed pleased by Fox News decision to let Morris' contract expire. He said, "First Sarah Palin. Now big Dick Morris. Fox News is rewriting its roster of pundits and in the process getting rid of its most ridiculous players."

    1. Anonymous9:05 AM

      But they still have alot of ridiculous players...guess you have to start somewhere.

    The next time you see him on TV, he'll be hawking internet/mail order ostomy bags. Good riddance, you stupid toe sucker.

    Yesterday there was news of Obama's upcoming trip to Israel.

    Guess what's posted on Chuck Jr.'s FB page today?
    A picture from March 2011.
    "Sarah and Todd with a couple of friends at a dinner party in Israel a year or so ago."

    Man these people are DESPERATE. Do they not see how obvious they are??

    1. "See?? Sarah still has friends, we all do! *cough*buy my book *cough*"

    2. Anonymous9:14 AM

      "Man these people are DESPERATE. Do they not see how obvious they are??"
      Their followers, who aren't near as smart as the average pond-scum amoeba, don't see it, no, but anyone with a brain or ounce of intelligence does see it. And yes, they are that desperate.
      Next up, Sarah will post a picture of herself on FB mocking the president's trip, all the while wearing her infamous Star of David necklace. Guarantee it..

  13. OT-- new information has come out from Routh's sister (the guy who shot Todd's buddy at the gun range). This guy didn't "just" have your run-of-the-mill PTSD, he had just been released FROM A MENTAL INSTITUTION a WEEK EARLIER:
    "In a written statement to police, Blevins wrote that her brother was 'out of his mind, saying people were sucking his soul and that he could smell the pigs. He said he was going to get their souls before they took his.'"
    That somehow makes this gun nut Kyle even worse in my opinion. I know you shouldn't hold anything against the dead, but... Did he really feel so effing confident with that gun strapped to him that he decided to throw caution to the wind and take a psychotic individual to a gun range?? Take someone who just left a mental institution and put a weapon in his hands??

    1. Anonymous9:46 AM

      I don't doubt Kyle's good intentions, but there has been some questioning of his wisdom in taking Routh to a live shooting range to begin with. Someone with his severity of ptsd could have easily been re-traumatized by just the sound of gunfire, and reverted instantly to survival mode. Routh is now refusing to meet with family or an attorney. I think there's going to be a lot more to this story before it's over.

  14. Wow, what does Dick Morris have that Sarah doesn't that helped him land another tv gig so quick? English language skills...

    1. Anonymous9:40 AM

      He is prettier than Sarah.

      Simple as that.

    2. Anonymous10:01 AM

      And he probably smells better.

    3. jcinco10:43 AM

      he wasn't hired by cnn he appeared on piers morgan's show..I'm sure sarah could have as well after getting fired from fux. she wouldn't, however, as the other cable news shows and networks aren't going to agree to provide her with their questions before hand.

  15. No republican pundit/activist is smarter than Rove, that’s why they keep him around. However, he isn’t smarter than the combined intelligence of the hive (Anonymous).

  16. Anonymous9:50 AM

    What does Dick Morris have that Sarah doesn't:

    Sarah has a pimp for a spouse.
    Sarah birthed a house full of retards.

  17. Anonymous10:29 AM

    Kinda O/T: but I'm reading a lot about Mark Levin's slamming of Karl Rove..

    You know, Levin slammed Rove for slamming Palin...Levin and Palin are besties..or beasties..Palin called Levin "Oh great one." ! As if..
    KLevin has a historyof going after anyone who dares say something negative about his wet dream, Palin. He's gone after Coulter for saying less than sterling things about his GILF..

  18. An ode to Sarah and the Dick...(Two little love birds sitting in a tree..).

    Two real dumbasses... out on a limb
    b-o-t-h r-e-a-l d-i-m!
    First came denial, then came the pout..
    But their stupidity no longer in doubt...

    I had a polling call here in Anchorage, AK yesterday and they actually had Sarah Palin named in it!!! For Governor against Parnell and against Mark Begich, U.S. Congress. Surprised the hell out of me. Of course, I said NO as to her.

    Why would anyone in Alaska ever vote for the idiot again? She's been nothing more than an embarrassment to the state throughout the past five years!

    Plus, the Republican party in Alaska is a total mess! Just read about them if you are interested.

    This is written by a 'non partisan' - that is how I vote!

    1. jcinco2:06 PM

      Where did you hear that? He appeared on the Piers Morgan show but I haven't read any where that CNN has signed him up....

    2. Anonymous7:11 PM

      OMG! If this is true, they really have scooped to the low of all lows CNN. Next we will hear that they signed on the wig from dead lake lucille. I watched the Piers Morgan interview with the Dick tonight and Piers didn't mention once about the wig being fired, ...or did I miss it?

  22. Anonymous1:01 PM

    FOX is getting rid of the 'retards' they've had spewing their 'bullshit' for the past four or five years. Now they need to get rid of Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. No wonder their viewership has dropped! I'd take Rachel, Lawrence and Chris any day over ANY of those on FOX.

  23. Beldar Pundit Conehead3:15 PM

    Maybe this is something you can celebrate, Gryphen, but personally, I cant wait for him to get another high pay/high profile pundintry gig no matter how horrible a pundint he is.

    Somehow, he got a hold of my cell number and now I get 15-20 calls a day: "Obama did this!", "Obama did that!", "Obama is suspending the constitution!", "Obama is dismantling the military!", "Obama is coming for your guns!!!"... and on and on. I try to tell him I dont have any guns for Obama to come get and still the calls come in.

    I'm at the end of my rope. I need the calls to stop. The only way I can even get him to shut up for a minute is to tell him I have The Screechy Wretch on line 2 for her insightful commentary on financial derivative reforms as they relate to secondary market sales of municipal development bond interest accruals according to generally accepted accounting principles. Then he always says the same thing: "After you talk to her, let me tell you what I think on the subject and how Obama is making it worse."

    And to Dick, I always say: "the trick to not - I repeat: NOT - letting that door hit you in the ass on your way out is to walk though the door as quickly as possible... Trust me, there is no other way."

  24. Ah, but FOX is in talks with Scott Brown to join their political pundit line-up :) Not sure he is much smarter than either Morris or Palin but her sure is purtier! :)

  25. Anita Winecooler5:56 PM

    Smart move! First they dumped a eunuch (Glen), then the antidote for Viagra (Baldy), and now Dick (Morris). Gee, MSNBC has been decimating Sean and
    Billo in the ratings, wonder who's next?

  26. New Internet Meme:
    Sarah Palin wasn't fired. She quit when she found out that soon there would be no more Dick at Fox News.

  27. Randall7:54 AM

    Both Morris and Palin should have that tattooed on their foreheads:



Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
