Also benched is Dick Morris, he of the Romney landslide prediction. Producers will now have to get permission to show either of their ugly mugs on the tee vee machine. Reality: 1, ill-informed, mean-spirited fantasy: 0. In case you'll miss them, here's video of their most memorably off-the-wall moments.
