 Meanwhile, Back In Downtown America: Fat Karl Goes Galt

According to TPM's Josh Marshall,
Shortly after Fox and everyone else called Ohio and the election for President Obama, [Fat Karl] Rove staged a live TV mutiny.

He insisted that the Ohio call had been premature and then forced Fox’s Megan Kelly to make an SNL like walk through the Fox building and confront the network’s official number counters with Rove’s objections.

...the guy calmly explained to Kelly that yes they were quite certain that Obama had defeated Romney and it was over. Kelly then walked back through the Fox building and gave the news to Rove. But it still wasn’t over.

This full Fox News network meltdown continued for a while... [Fox news then] brought in Michael Barone — key political numbers guy who just a day ago was saying that Romney would win with 70,000 electoral votes — to basically calmly, empathetically talk Rove down from the ledge...

As this was happening the other electoral votes were piling up to the point where Ohio didn’t even matter anymore. 
 This is what being a Rightist wingnut in America -- refusing to live in a reality-based world -- is all about.  I feel so (cough cough) sorry for poor Karl.

Please feel free to thrill all humankind with the brilliance and importance of You. And forgo all civility (especially the passive-aggressive sort, aggression masquerading as mildness) . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

But, consider: Dogs have short attention spans, don't tolerate bullies, and we're notoriously thin-skinned -- so make sense, be brief, and play nice, or I'll bite you and pee on your leg. Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark.
