After going through a montage of political pundits and their predictions for the upcoming election and the fact that the likes of Newt Gingrich and Dick Morris are perpetually wrong with theirs, Stewart had this response to Morris pretending there might be some accountability for the fact that he's never right about anything.

STEWART: But I can show you a prediction that was wrong today. It comes via Dick Morris, king of Wrong Mountain, and it concerns accountability for pundits. [...]

MORRIS: You know, after the election, either I'm going to have to go through a big reckoning, or they are.

STEWART: No. You won't and they won't. Nobody will. Because you're pundits. You live in a reckoning free zone. One thing we learned is that punditry is like musical chairs. The only difference is, in punditry, when the music stops, nobody ever loses their f**king chair. They just keep adding more chairs.
