    Of course he’s smiling, his and the DNC’s candidate won the evening..well four out of six states at this count, anyhoo.

      And yet he came very close to blasphemy (or is it sacrilege? I always get those two confused…) in the process.

      I tuned in to CNN just to see how the race was unfolding. I can’t stomach any CNN panels or any of the discussions where they load up with so-called ‘experts’ who, predictably, are mostly ex-Obama administration people or Democratic operatives on some level, but their live coverage of elections is pretty good (love that board that King uses!).

      So Jake Tapper is talking one-on-one to the blonde woman beside him, when he suddenly lowers his voice and begins to speak rather hesitantly and haltingly about Joe Biden and his…umm…”issues”

      (I believe that’s the word he finally settled on; he started to say a couple of other words first (“challenges”, might have been one of them) but changed his mind at the last second. Like I said: he was being *really* careful).

      He gets about halfway through his thought when suddenly Wolf Blitzer (who I didn’t even know was there) booms out “WE HAVE NEW NUMBERS FROM WASHINGTON!”; the camera pans over to him and the moment is over.

      (hilarious, really. I laughed out loud. Soooo close….)

      Careful, Jake. I think Wolf might have just saved your job…:)
