5. Republicans who suddenly have to force themselves to embrace the predictions of Nate Silver. Nate Silver's Five Thirty-Eight  website, which predicted the 2012 election without getting a single state wrong, just announced his prediction that the GOP is likely to retake the Senate in 2014. In the long leadup to 2012, Silver consistently predicted an Obama reelection, and pundits on the right consistently called him a charlatan who was manipulating stats to match his own leanings. Those same pundits will most likely be going on TV tonight, forcing themselves to tout Silver's genius and pretend they were always big fans. Just not of his "early stuff." (BP)

4. People hoping that Kutchis will fail. Okay, maybe “Kutchis” will never take off, but it seems clear at this point that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are in this for the long haul, which means anywhere from four to nine years by Hollywood standards. So to those of you angry with Ashton Kutcher over the way he treated Demi Moore, or because you paid 12 dollars to see Jobs, or you’re just stuck in a loveless or sexless relationship and hate it whenever two attractive, wealthy people fall in love and flaunt it in front of the whole world, instead of wasting time worrying about what Kutchis are up to, you should try looking in the mirror and asking yourself why you never formed a bond with a costar on on a hugely popular sitcom. (JC)
