Department of "Huh?"

The Swamp loses itself in a swamp:

The Swamp - Chicago Tribune - Blogs.: Lieberman could be losing Posted by Jon Lender, Elizabeth Hamilton and David Owens at 9:20 pm CDT, and updated at 9:45 pm: Sen. Joe Lieberman is sweating tonight: With nearly 72 percent of the state's precincts reporting just before 9 pm CDT, the Connecticut Democrat was trailing challenger Ned Lamont by 51.6 to 48.4 percent. The vote tally was 100,425 for Lamont and 94,148 for Lieberman. But the more votes were counted tonight, the narrower the margin grew: With 83 percent of all precincts reporting, it was Lamont 120,616, Lieberman 111,887.

Since when is 8,729 "narrower" than 6,277?

May we ask for some arithmetic here?

Why oh why can't we have a better press corps?
