Karl Rove during an interview with NPR in October 2006:

SIEGEL: But you’ve seen the DeWine race and the Santorum race – I don’t want to have you call races.

Mr. ROVE: Yeah, I’m looking at all these, Robert, and adding them up, and I add up to a Republican Senate and Republican House. You may end up with a different math, but you’re entitled to your math, I’m entitled to the math.

Final outcome? Democrats took control of the House and Senate.

:

Final outcome? President Obama won Ohio, and the presidency, as other news organizations made the same call.

Naturally, Jon Stewart had a field day with this.

Update: The Sunlight Foundation crunched the numbers and found that American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS – Karl Rove’s two super PACs – spent a combined $175 million in this election and not a single one of their supported candidates won.
