Brit Hume is not his normally smooth self tonight. He’s tongue-tied and griping at his producers, questioning the electoral vote totals and wondering aloud whether somebody goofed in not marking Pennsylvania as already called.
I think this is the problem: He had a tense moment earlier with Democratic pundit Susan Estrich and that’s throwing him off. Instead of thinking about exit polls and the number of precincts reporting, Brit’s consumed with fear that Susan is mad at him.
I hope Susan calls and tells Brit that everything’s all right, or he may fall apart completely before the night’s over.
