CNN's Squeaker Looks Not So Squeaky


I can't have been the only who noticed Wolf Blitzer talking, as the Wisconsin polls closed, about how shockingly "head-to-head" the race had turned out even as early returns showed Scott Walker's lead over Tom Barrett grow ever larger. Even as the words "fifty-fifty" were uttered, the actual results were more like 53-46, and then 57-42, and suddenly CNN's screen was filled with Union Jacks and coverage of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

I mean, I like idle, inbred aristocrats as much as the next citizen of a country that fought a revolutionary war to establish a republic that wasn't ruled by a monarch, but c'mon.

Oh, look! Wolf just called it for Walker!
