Amen, brother man

This is from Tom Tomorrow's site: "Memo to network executives: we don't need your exit polling or your projected winners, because we've already got a system in place to determine the outcome of the election.

It's called voting.

See, what you do is, you shut up and wait until the votes are counted and--voila--you find out who won. It's just that simple."

Thank god someone else thinks this way. I have always thought it was wrong for the news networks to post partial counts and exit polls from the east coast before the polls on the west coast closed. If the polls close at 7 pm in California then let the networks speculate their asses off at that point and let them keep silent for a few hours once a year. Is that too much to ask?
