Shoulda Listened to That Guy's Financial Advice:
The Rude Pundit, in an e-mail to a friend, on November 1, 2004: "Either [John Kerry wins] or I start investing in euros on Wednesday." It's not quite as bad as "Hey, when that Yahoo stock goes on sale, I should buy some," but, still, some things are eminently predictable. That our economy would be in the shitter during a second Bush term? Pretty much a guarantee.

Alas, the long-stinging disgrace of the coulda-woulda-shoulda.
