It's been a glorious year. 

I think Chum is here under another name.

Oh, and Sam, no need to bump a stickied topic.

This has become possibly the most iconic thread ever created on uselectionatlas. I can just imagine Mypalfish typing "I will now accept my accolades" into the subject bar with absolutely no idea how legendary that thread would become. Hard to believe that it's been a year already!

Well, I predicted a Kerry victory (and said Bush had to be in Ohio and Florida more), and I also said that the GOP GOTV 72 hour plan would be very ineffective. And it looks like I was right.

The funny part isn't the result of the election; it's that the poster so surely proclaimed he was right right before the facts punctured his theory.

If this had been a poster telling us how he was an "insider" with the Obama campaign and how Keys was going to win, it would be just as funny.

No, actually, that would be MUCH funnier.

Not really though, because it would have been so obviously fake, while here it was a close race, so we can assume that mypalfish actually believed  what he was typing. If someone insisted Keyes would win, we'd all think he'd have been joking.

I don't disagree with making light to some degree with someone's inaccurate prediction, but does this thread really merit being stickied?

This just seems ridiculous to sticky this, unless we are going to start stickying stuff like when AuH20 predicted Harris would win in Florida.

True, but there really is a difference of degree here.  All of us have sort of occasionally wacky and dead-wrong predictions 12 to 18 months out from that we may post in a thread here and there.

It's a totally different thing to be saying "day of election" when only exit polls and rumors of exit polls are out that the election is most certainly over already and then make a thread detailing this fact.

That is an error of the greatest magnitude for those of us talk and predict elections.  It's like pitching and throwing a game-winning grand slam to lose the World Series.

Yeah. I agee it's the stupidest prediction anyone has ever made by far, but still, why sticky it? Is it sort of like putting skulls on the town walls in medieveal times, a warning to other posters that they better not make any ridiculous predictions or else they will suffer the same fate?

If the guy had come out and just said he thought Kerry was going to win, nobody would have thought twice of it.  But this dumb a$$ tried to make half the people on the board look stupid by saying he tried to tell everyone that Kerry would win and nobody would listen.  Well guess what, the joke was on him.  And it was him who wound up looking stupid.   So let this serve as a lesson to  everyone else not to taunt people before the final chicken has hatched.

This thread was of vital importance in November of 2004.  It kept the winning side from taunting the losign side.  Instead we all came in here and taunted mypalfish.  Its stickying also serves as a reminder to, as said by the angry one, not count your chickens before they hatch.

And there are some damn funny posts in here.

That's true, you bring up some good points. I'm still not sure it merits stickying but the guy did say it was ok to ridicule him for the next four years if he was wrong.

If the Democrats win in November, he should come back and just claim he was 2 years early.  Good times.
