If there’s a pile of money to be picked over in American politics, whether it’s Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign in 1996, Rupert Murdoch’s wallet in this century, or the RNC’s ten-million dollar effort to re-brand itself for Latino voters, you can bet toe-sucking whoremonger Dick Morris will be nearby peddling a solution, ready to hoover up the cash.

In any normal country, there would be no particular reason to expect 2013 to be an awful year. The right-wing Presidential candidate, who preached austerity, family values, and military adventurism, was soundly defeated by the center-left candidate, who favored, well, austerity-lite, personal freedom, and a fiscally convenient “peace dividend.” Overconfident and overfunded Republicans were similarly trounced in the House and Senate, losing seats in both despite stunning structural advantages.
It seemed that the Right’s perennial hobby horses, from favoring the wealthiest above all others and demonizing minorities of every type, to demanding that every non-military expenditure be slashed to the bone, had clearly been sent to the glue factory by the electorate. Alas, things are never what they seem in Washington.

Tonight, millions of Americans will settle in for a debate between a fresh-faced prodigy from Middle America with a lot of Big Ideas (not to mention cat food hot dish recipes), go head to head with a tired Washington Insider with an admittedly undisciplined mouth. But only one of them is a douchebag.

Dick Morris has shown an unusual talent for contradicting himself over the course of several columns. But today, he’s taken that gift to a whole new level.
