    I'm not going to watch any coverage until seven oclock this evening.

    I made the mistake of watching election day coverage last time and it was an enormous waste of time. Exit polls were showing Kerry was making big strides- the usual stories about polls not opening until after noon in Chicago and Detroit- racial intimidation-homeless people getting paid to vote etc etc etc. Young reporters trying to make names for themselves. I just want final numbers. Nothing else.

    I am going to watch as much as I can, but I'm going to try to ignore exit polls totals. They are always wrong. They broke my heart in 2004. And all the early voting this year will make them screwier than usual.

    That said, I will be interested in reports on turnout, demographics, etc. That's useful info and it tends to be reliable.

    If I want to see at a car wreck I'll look at my last performance evaluation.
