The encroaching gloom that overtook liberals Tuesday night as Donald Trump’s victory became apparent was a once-in-lifetime moment of joy, made all the more joyous by how completely unexpected it was:

Shortly after 9:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, Rachel Maddow felt a need to inform MSNBC viewers they weren’t hallucinating. “You’re awake by the way,” she said, trying to smile. “You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell. This is your life now. This is our election now. This is us. This is our country. It’s real.”
Polls had been closed for two hours in Ohio and North Carolina at that point, and the early results in those states, as well as in Florida and elsewhere, were not what Maddow and her liberal media friends had been expecting.
In the final few days of the 2016 presidential campaign, polls had shown Hillary Clinton leading — she was ahead 3.3% in the final Real Clear Politics average of national polls, after all. What could possibly go wrong?
Everything, that’s what. . . .
