Did this man not look like he wanted both to cry and to lash out? He was absolutely fuming at the results. He was extremely bothered by the idea that Kerry had in fact lost, though CNN and ABC clung to their forlorn hope well past the point of any reasonable doubt.
Given Mr. Jennings's demeanor on this and every other night, I an inclined not to accept this victory humbly but to give the man his due:
With all due respect (i.e. none), get off your knees and stop fellating the Democratic party.
