Karl Rove has a meltdown on Fox as Obama wins

One of the best moments from the US election night was that of Karl Rove disagreeing with Fox News analysts that Barack Obama was going to be re-elected.

After all, Karl Rove had been in the Wall street Journal just a few days ago predicting a Romney landslide. He didn’t want to be proven wrong by the maths that quickly and comprehensively.

Predictably, Jon Stewart at the Daily Show has great fun with this. He says the Karl Rove segment will ‘live forever’.

Sadly, the original Jon Stewart video is now unavailable, but you can watch what happened below anyway, from a different show.

Not as funny though as the accidental release of Romney’s victory page.

It’s maths

Defend the BBC. I’m as proud of the Corporation now as I ever have been.
