While painfully obvious to anyone who can count electoral votes, and recognizing that Obama will easily sweep California, Oregon, and Washington, at this point on November 4th none of the news networks have the guts to call the election for what it is.
Sure, there is something about not calling an election before the polls close on the west coast.
And, there is idiocy. Or sanity. Or a silly hope to cling to manufactured drama to keep people tuned in. Depending on your perspective.
So, major news networks, now that I have called the election, you are free to do so.
