Brief Political Aside

I'm watching CNN's election coverage (in glorious high definition) and Wolf Blitzer was just showing Barack Obama with a giant, 18-point lead over Hillary Clinton. I was kind of surprised by that. He then showed the vote totals--436,064 votes for Obama and only 303,276 votes for Clinton with 1 percent reporting. He actually read the totals out and did some analysis on them. Apparently it never occurred to him that this might be some sort of technical glitch since, you know, Texas doesn't have 73 million voters.

Blitzer! Get over here and sit on my shoulders while I do push-ups.

It wasn't a technical glitch, it included all the prevotes (which Obama won)
