Better than any script The West Wing has come up with. And this script could be stranger than fiction.

" You just say it was a bureaucratic snafu. An innocent little mistake. Somebody forgot that Florida has two closing times. (pauses"

Good shot! 77% of CBS reporting on Bush is negative!!

Wow! The DNC version of the Star Chamber ... the Sludge Pit. Well done, Publius! I have a notion you're onto something with this. I wonder how Terry McAwful will react to this glimpse of his methodologies? Watch your back, Publius, you may be too close to the reality.

I hate to play devil's advocate, because I don't think the networks are above pulling a stunt like this (and the DNC certainly isn't), but what about Fox? They called FL for Gore too.

Of course, Fox's call came a few minutes after the other outlets issued theirs. It's possible that the suits at Fox thought one of the other networks knew something they didn't, and they just bowed to the pressure to keep up with the competition.

I was watching in y2k when ABC called Floriduh, either Jennings or Stephanoupolous remarked a few moments later that the polls were still open in the panhandle, then they both laughed and one said something like "there's no one up there anyway". I don't think I've watched ABC news since.

Looks great. The "Thurmond and Lott" reference though - if you want to be historically accurate - took place after the 2000 election. Right?

My favorite line:

NBC: "Listen, pal, there’s this thing called the Patriot Act. One phone call from DC and any one of us could disappear."

LMAO!!!

Excellent read. The early call has really bugged me since it happened. I was in my precinct on my way to pick up several elderly and several registered voters I knew who would not vote unless taken to the polls when the call came out about Florida. I couldn't get a one to go vote.
