Additionally, can I just take a moment to rant about the national coverage of today's activities? They had freakin' called the presidential race hours before our polls closed here in California, before I even got home from work, for goodness' sake. I'm a firm believer in voting the entire ballot, so the fact that my vote for President won't count didn't deter me from standing in line in the rain, but I know for a fact that there were people throwing their sample ballots in the trash and walking away after it came over the radio. Thank you, CNN and MSNBC and CBS and all of the rest, for not being able to wait a short couple of hours to start congratulating yourselves so that the west coast could finish voting before you called it. Seriously, if this cannot be stopped then we need to align the voting hours across the country and not announce any results until each of the states are finished voting because we Californians get fairly sick of being the largest state in the union and yet completely superfluous to the choice of a President.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to bed.
