I Hate Myself For Searching for Leaked Exit Polls

I should be patient. Play some video games, watch a movie, or clean the apartment... but yet I find myself irresistibly drawn to some reports of a "big night" for Obama. Of course, early exit polls have a nasty habit of completely wrong as President Kerry can well attest. They have tiny samples sizes and need to be weighted by actual votes before they start becoming meaningful (which is, from my understanding, how networks determine when to "call" a state)... and generally just mess with your head.

So yeah, I still have a bad feeling about Wisconsin.

UPDATE: Well CNN just called it for Obama, so I LOVE EXIT POLLS!
