You're Welcome

I congratulate myself on the acuity of the previous post, which not only called an Obama win at least an hour before the networks noticed it, but also reported an even earlier case of the call, made in person by me out loud in public. I submit that the outcome was any surprise at all only because the major news sources willingly duped themselves into the breathless narrative excitement of a close race pandered by the Republicans, just in case in might become one, but on election night, swiftly, as election nights go, states one by one brushed Romney aside, and from the moment Ohio fell to Obama the hot air it took in the newsroom to misremember what had just happened lasted far into the weekend [it is predicted here. p.r.]
