WHEN I SAY “DON’T GET COCKY,” I’m apparently not getting through to Dick Morris, who seems quite cocky indeed.

UPDATE: More cockiness. Remember, predictions of victory aren’t a substitute for hard work. But there’s this:

Can you imagine with all the ethical vulnerabilities you have been showing about Schumer – not to mention that he’s more a symbol of this Congress than anyone and he’s got pretty unimpressive numbers – the GOP is not even mounting a campaign against him?

I saw the Conservative Party candidate (Jay Townsend) running against Schumer on Sean Hannity’s TV show last summer. So here is a nice-looking guy who speaks well and he’s funny. And he turns out be a political strategist, so he doesn’t make dumb mistakes.

So why aren’t we behind him I’m asking?

I wouldn’t miss Schumer.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Adam Kwiatkowski emails:

Prof. Reynolds:

In less than 18 months, the Tea Party went from being ignored, to ridiculed, to fought with every weapon in the left’s arsenal. And then this week the President of the United States – the Tea Party’s nemesis – concedes that the Tea Party has some legitimate concerns. Then Thomas Friedman, dean of the dim-bulb center-left beltway conventional wisdom crowd, decides that he and those who agree with him are the true Tea Party, and those charlatans masquerading as the Tea Party are just “blowing off steam.” Thomas Mother-Loving Friedman, of all people, wants the Tea Party label.

A remarkable week, and a remarkable eighteen months.

Well, good point. But don’t take your eyes off those TIE fighters, kid.

MORE: No, really, don’t get cocky.

STILL MORE: Jim Treacher sums things up.
