Breaking news

"... And in another closely watched race, a historic result out of New York -- with one vote cast, CNN is projecting that Uno has won Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show, the first beagle ever to win the event in the show's 132-year history. So, a stunning upset in New York. Terry?"

"Wolf, this has to be a serious blow to Remy, considered the front-runner going into tonight's contest. Remy's handlers were counting on the previous best-in-show wins to project an aura of inevitability around the standard poodle. But Uno's campaign, stressing his position as an 'honest dog' -- the dog next door, if you will -- touched a strong populist chord..."

Seriously, congrats to Uno. And I wouldn't be too surprised if one of the networks actually handled it this way -- or will in the wee hours -- complete with graphic showing the blinking checkmark next to Uno's name and picture...

A beagle won on Darwin's birthday. Remarkably appropriate.

Actually, MSNBC did do the "State Won" graphic for Uno, with New York's outline but the state named "Westminster."
