Weekly Standard founder Bill Kristol was once again the butt of the political joke on Tuesday after his latest faulty prediction — in this case, his take on the New Hampshire GOP presidential primary.
Last week, Kristol forecast a win for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) not too far behind in second and Donald Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich bringing up the rear, tagging his Twitter prediction #NoGutsNoGlory, as seen below:
NH prediction, 5 days out: Rubio 25, Cruz 22, Trump 19, Kasich 17, others single digits. #NoGutsNoGlory

In fact, Kristol — who argued last year that former Vice President Dick Cheney would be the “most promising” GOP candidate — would win neither the guts nor the glory; not only did Trump take the win early on in the primary, but Kasich emerged in second place during the early votes. Cruz and Rubio stumbled early. And Twitter users were quick to pounce on him for it.

History Lesson: @BillKristol's predictions became important after we were greeted as liberators in Iraq but before Pres. Romney's election
