    Barrack wins?

    How can news organizations project a winner of a state when less than 1% of the precincts have been counted? At 8:30 PM Fox (the last to do so) called PA a loss for McCain and a few minutes later they called OH for Obama also with less than 1% counted.

    Karl Rove says basically that Barrack has won, GOD help our Nation.

    I may just go shoot myself now!

    Yes it is and we in this business should know that pretty well.

    I'm waiting....waiting for the weight challenged lady to exercise her vocal pipes.

    Sure, it doesn't look good with all this 'projecting'...I remember my history lessons and a newspaper about Dewey too though....
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I also remember a few years back that the MEDIA projected FLORIDA one way, then the other, then back again, then they were afraid to project any decision, then they FOUGHT and FOUGHT over any results that came in...


    I realy dont like the way things are turning out.
    Popular vote is close, electoral outcome POOR.
    It is looking even worse for the economy and TAXES than the vote shows....

    It's called voter manipulation.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    For all the bluster and pose that the left makes about fairness in broadcasting, what about the obvious manipulation (as Bootlen also said) of those in the Western U.S. by calling Eastern races

    I mean, what about "interstate commerce" and the fanatical desire by the left to regulate it. Oh yeah, only when their "little guy" objects I guess


    Besides, the media is a willing partner in this. They can hardly wait to call it, regardless of how that affects the political process. There is money to be made by calling it first

    He won by a landslide. Thank Bush and all of the sorry*#$ decisions he made in order for that to happen. It wasn't even close.
