We're all in a state of shock. Wolf Blitzer, Frank Somerville, Rachel Maddow, ...you could look at their faces and see the effect of Tuesday Night.
I skipped all around the dial, TV and radio with CNN and Fox News --a little MSNBC too--I wanted to view all the coverage.
I had little time for the local TV stations because they provided little to discuss and wisely, they pretty much stuck to the networks.
Cable was front and center. I'm still seeing Blitzer asking John King, again and again, "give him (Trump) Virginia, now what?" as if Wolf was trying to somehow, will, a "path" for Hillary's victory. Not so much surprising but a little bizarre, Wolf's stock is down today. Big surprise.
*For some reason KTVU thinks Ross Palombo is some political sage and uses him primetime on its 10 O'clock News. I can't believe that assignment--where's Joe Tuman? Better yet, again, WHY Palombo? He's got about as much political prowess and intellect as Wolf Blitzer's beard shavings.
Franklin was simply awful interrupting comments, making inappropriate "jokes", and comporting himself like the fool he is/was. What genius at KGO OKed his hosting gig? Franklin also embarrassed his in-studio guests; while a caller mentioned the idea in the future of a Constitutional Convention (to tweak the Electoral system) Franklin said "that would be great; there'd be hookers and booze." Not funny. Not even real, and not the place. Franklin should be ashamed --a KGO source told me that both Rothmann and Thurston were more than annoyed and unnerved over Franklin's act.
*Weird audio moment on KCBS: Political reporter, Doug Sovern, asked by Stan Bunger about how awfully wrong the polls were --provided this curious response --"Why would anyone care what I think?" --Huh? Hey Doug, they (Bunger and others) obviously DO care because they wouldn't be asking you and you wouldn't be featured numerous times on the radio.
*Can we just right now put the polling people and "data" out of business, like now!
*The female Ross Palombo: KTVU's insipidly awful, Jana Katsuyama, reporting live from Clinton Headquarters in the city. She makes Melissa Caen look like Clarissa Ward.
*Local reporters, 2016, who have no clue how to report on politics and have been thrust into said position. Stick to covering fires in Oakland and stay away from presidential elections.
*BAN these words and phrases immediately: "the narrative", "pivot", "act presidential" --Am I leaving anything out?
*Sports-talk radio shows should stick to sports too; the toy department can't suddenly evolve into elegant furnishings.
*Chris Matthews: what a putz. Which means he'll be a guest on Ronn's show this morning.
