The buzz at the Santorum Headquarters

In the hours before the polls close - and national reporters have nothing to do except bide their time before their live shots - there was some real buzz at the Santorum HQ.  Literally.  The audio system from the podium was plagued by a buzz.  Any audio engineer will tell you such a gremlin is caused by a crossed wire, a short inside a line, or the impedance on a sound line being switched the wrong way.  The problem is chasing it down among an army of radio and TV news crews.

The noise in the line is no small annoyance.  There are reporters and producers who've traveled hundreds, even thousands, of miles to be here for the moment the candidate takes the stage.  Something like a buzz in the audio would ruin the broadcast.

We can report that - just as mysteriously as it came - the buzz has left the building.  For now...  It looks like every audio engineer in the room will be worried until Santorum leaves the podium.
