Oh The Humanity

At NRO, novelist Robert Ferrigno imagines an alternative reality DNC and how it would be covered on MSNBC World:

"Good morning, Mr. and Mrs. America and all the ships at sea, this is Keith Olbermann reporting from the sixth day Democratic convention. Overtime. Extra innings. Sudden death." Olbermann hunched over, the studio lights glaring off the sheen of sweat across his forehead. "It's 3 A.M. in Denver, the witching hour, and after 134 ballots, the convention is still deadlocked between the presumed nominee, Barak Obama, and the insurgent forces of Hillary Rodham Clinton. At this moment, three holdouts for John Edwards, three deadenders who evidently previously served on an Edwards's jury and remain hypnotized, hold the key to the nomination and the presidency." He held up a blank sheaf of papers, jiggled them. "Our latest MSNBC-NBC intelligence reports indicate that anything can happen, so please, stay tuned."
