HA! That has been my favorite meme of the past month. When that video appeared right at the end of the campaign, it was like icing on the cake. Even sweeter after the results came in.

CorporatePerson: stoli n coke: Benevolent Misanthrope: No, they're reducing their time, not cutting them. Probably because, you know, election season is farking OVER, and that's what they were there for in the first place.

Yep. There's not point to keeping election analysts on the full time payroll when there is no election to analyze.

Besides, Fox News isn't mad at those guys, because they were telling the audience exactly what they wanted to hear, just like every other Fox News talking head.

Yup. In a few years Rove and Morris will be back on Fox rooting for the home team blowing smoke up their asses and all the trolls I have favorited in Red will be back with familiar taunts of "You Nate Silver worshipping libs are in for a real surprise when the unskewed polls prove correct and President Santorum wins in a FROTHY landslide!"

Hard to be surprised. Dick Morris really stuck his foot in his mouth.

And a hooker's.

If Rove had had a meltdown, the entire studio would have gone sliding into the ocean on a wave of grease.

Okay, did I watch a different clip of Carl Rove than everybody else? They keep calling that a meltdown. He _sounded_ reasoned and reasonable. (And the numbers I saw suggested to me that calling Ohio at that point probably _was_ a bit premature.)

Granted, his facts were wrong; granted, he very much wanted his facts to be true. Granted, I'd truly enjoy kicking Turdblossom in the nuts repeatedly. But nothing I saw in that clip even slightly resembled anything like a meltdown. The only out-of-line behavior I saw were the awkward snide insults lobbed in by the faux news crew when he dared contradict their interpretation.
