Actually Fox News provided the evening’s entertainment. In the middle of the election-night returns, I stopped flipping through the channels and turned on Fox News Channel. It wasn’t a partisan act, though I imagine Fox racked up lot of gloating Democratic viewers last night. Hours before the network declared for Obama, the hint of despair was palpable, though the expression of it varied by personality. Peggy Noonan described “a subdued feeling”; Liz Cheney groused that the Republican bench was better than Elizabeth Warren. Sarah Palin, remote from Wasilla, declared this “a perplexing time for many of us right now.” Only Karl Rove remained stubbornly optimistic, and the anchors weren’t buying it. As Rove delivered a dizzying monologue about percentages in Ohio, Megyn Kelly asked, “Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?” And then came the remarkable tussle over the Fox News “Decision Desk,” as Republicans — including a still frantically number-crunching Rove — questioned the network’s Ohio call. That battle overshadowed the hand-wringing over messaging gone wrong: the harsh rhetoric on immigration, the importance of women’s issues, the image problem caused by certain far-right candidates, the notion that maybe the country was more liberal than Brit Hume had previously thought.

I'd just like to Thank The Romney Family for the message they gave to the American people. One of Hope, and a glimps of what it could have been like. Thank You and I'm so sorry you did not make it to the White House. It's our Country's lose. May God Bless you.
