    FOX News already called it:

    The Republicans took the house. Heck, our polls are hours away from closing.

    Remarkably, they were pretty much right on. I know I was being facetious above, but there is some real effort and science put into those predictions. Being the first to announce these (and get them right) gives them a lot of clout, so they take it pretty seriously.

    A bookie in Ireland paid off the bets on the Republicans taking the house last week.
    He was so sure he said there was no reason to wait.
    Bookies don't pay off unless they are really sure.

    They could have figured this back when Obama got elected.
