Possibly overlooked in the holiday excitement - Mitt Rommey has passed John McCain in total votes. John Podhoretz had predicted this slow vote accretion right after the election, when pundits were putting up the black crepe and noting that McCain had gotten two million more votes than Romney.
In addition to losing both the popular and electoral votes for president, the Republicans lost nearly every swing state. Although the race was far closer than in 2008, Mr. Romney won two million fewer votes than Mr. McCain did against Mr. Obama that year.
Corrections? At the Paper of Broken Record? C'mon, every day is Turkey Day over there.
