I believe what we saw last night was an example of the "Taranto Principle." If I understand it correctly, the theory (from the inimitable James Taranto) is that liberals, long accustomed to preferential treatment in the press, can't hold their own when confronted with higher elevations such as in Denver.
I just realized - we should be extra grateful that the President was out of his depth. Because if it had been close, or if Romney had just slightly won, the news media would be declaring it a huge Obama victory.
"Don't know how Romney can recover from this one Mika"
"Obama couldn't have been more masterful without riding up onto the stage on a unicorn."
The coverage would have gone on for days.
