RUSH: That question Chris Wallace asked, "Mr. Trump, will you pledge to accept the result?"  "No, no.  Why should I?"  If he would have accepted, if he would have announced last night that he was gonna accept the results, the story today would be: "Trump conceded defeat last night."  But here's the real point.  Trump did what he had to do.  Trump's whole reason for running is wrapped up in his answer to that question last night. 

RUSH: I thought Trump once again just missed a whole bunch of opportunities to bury her last night, and he missed them because he's not a politician, and he's not instinctively oriented toward the ideological explanations that undergird Hillary's policies... But here's the second thing.  I thought she looked not good last night.  When she started speaking, I looked at Kathryn, I said, "There's something wrong here."  And it's not her eyes.  Her eyes were dancing a little bit, if you know to look for that.  Her voice seemed to be really weak.  She didn't seem to be projecting well.  She didn't seem imbued with a lot of confidence.  I caught her glancing down at her podium frequently.  She looked unsure.

RUSH: Oh, my God.  Oh, my God.  Somebody call paramedics.  Somebody get hold of the first responders.  Call 9/11.  The media's having vapors.  They can't believe it.  He's even joking.  This man's ego so out of control, he's even joking about something as precious as our election and results.  No sense of humor.  No understanding at all of how Trump connects with his supporters, none.  No understanding of that at all. That's the thing that really, really makes me laugh. After over a year they still don't know why Trump supporters support him, or if they do, they're just in a state of denial. 

RUSH: They didn't let it go, ever.  They used his illegitimate victory in Florida and they blamed that on the Supreme Court.  They said the Supreme Court was rigged!  They accused the Supreme Court of being rigged for Bush.  They accused the state of Florida of being rigged for Bush.  They didn't accept that result ever.  It's one of the reasons they couldn't ever let go of their hatred for George W. Bush, because once the recount started, that's when they thought they would prevail.  That's when they thought they knew best how to win by cheating.  And they weren't able to pull it off. 

RUSH: Kerry loses in 2004, but let's remind ourselves of exactly what happened.  The first wave of exit polls hit at about five p.m., between four and five p.m. on Election Day in 2004, and the first wave of exit polls showed that Kerry was going to win.  And Bob Shrum, who was the campaign manager for Kerry, walked into Kerry's office waving that first batch of exit polls and said, "May I be the first to congratulate you, Mr. President."  So starting at five o'clock Eastern time, Election Day 2004, the Democrats thought John Kerry had won, based on exit polling.
