Rove tears up resume
: CBS calls Florida for Bush. Looking like four more, eh?
: NBC wins the castration award. Hasn’t called Florida yet.
: Frank Catalano at LostRemote says ABC was first, then CBS, now the AP. NBC and CNN holding back.
: CNN just called Florida.
: NBC just called Colorado for Bush. Still no Florida call.
: And NBC just called Florida.
That’s what I call foreplay.
Exit stage right
: On CNN, Jeff Greenfield and Marc Racicot, the head of the Bush campaign, are complaining about the exit polls being far off, acknowledging that they weren’t quoted on the air but that they were “flying across the internet” and affected at least campaign staffs and media.
Exit polls are going to be as trusted as lawyers, journalists, and used-car salesmen in future elections.
: Glenn Reynolds links to this Randy Holloway post saying the story of tonight is how the polls f’ed up.
: Ana Marie Cox is being held prisoner.
Throw away the Keyes
: It’s so nice seeing imported nutjob Alan Keyes going down in flames. The Republicans would have been better off running Homer Simpson.
Will this be on the final
: Oregonlive.com (a day-job site) has a professor calling the election for Bush.
Aaron Brown buzz
: I’m told that Aaron Brown just read my Pledge on CNN.
It made Joe Territo do a spit-take with his Sam Adams.
Jim Treacher says in a comment below: “Aaron Brown just read your pledge on the air. It probably took him longer to say it than it did for you to type it.”
Many nice folks are sending me email to let me know. Thanks.
I’m delighted. Spread the pledge. Who better to do it than Aaron Brown?
: UPDATE: The amazing Staci Kramer, now of PaidContent.org, backs up her buffer and transcribes what Aaron said:
We’ve long lamented the coming of the day when nobody, nobody, will listen to or entertain an idea different from their own. We’re more than halfway there already, it seems. Part of the passion animating this campaign derived from taking the country back,
What he says.
: “This prudence is driving me crazy.” — Mort Kondracke on FoxNews
: Blogs are big enough to get spun on election night. See Instapundit and Wonkette reporting Republican confidence in Florida, the same message that went to NBC.
