Vote 2008

Even Fox betrayed them

I’m trying to keep my schadenfreude to a minimum (among other things, the times are just too serious), but I couldn’t help taking a tiny bit of pleasure from this report on the crowd at John McCain’s non-victory party at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix:

Those controlling the television screens in the room left on CBS long enough for the revelers to see that Obama had 206 electoral votes to McCain’s 135. “Fox! Fox! Fox!” they demanded, waving their pompons. Quickly, CBS and CNN were replaced on screen by Fox News’s Carl Cameron, and a cheer arose. But Fox’s count was even worse: McCain was down 207 to 129.
