JUST A REMINDER: Basically, nothing the TV talking-heads say before the polls close means anything. Remember the bogus Kerry-victory exit poll reports from 2004?The New York TImes story he's linking to [Networks May Call Race Before Voting Is Complete ], features a quote from David Plotz of Slate who says"Our readers are not stupid, and we shouldn't engage in a weird Kabuki drama that pretends McCain could win California and thus the presidency.We will call it when a sensible person—not a TV news anchor who has to engage in a silly pretense about West Coast voters—would call it."
UPDATE: Apparently, though, some networks just can't wait to call the election this time around. Hmm . . . .
