Tuesday update: The Daily Beast editor Tina Brown repeated her thank-heavens-it's-a-boy congratulations to the Royal Couple on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning, saying, "I mean, once again, she does the perfect thing... I mean, although there's the constitutional change that we can now have a girl as the first born to be the monarch, nonetheless, she does the traditional thing, and she gives us a prince. She gives a king. I mean, let's face it, the Queen will be thrilled. She and the Duke of Edinburgh, much as they would have said they would have been fine with a girl first born, they really did want a boy and they got one."
Original: In a shocking moment of unscripted cable television on Monday, a vestigial sexist feudal institution found a brief respite from repudiation. "I can't believe we finally, after all this waiting, know that we have a boy," CNN's Victoria Arbiter said of Kate Middleton's first child. "My first thought, I have to say, was this is how brilliant a royal Kate is. There are women throughout British royal family history that have panicked over not being able to deliver a boy. And here we are — Kate did it first time."
