CNN Fun With Math

A tale of two comparably-sized states, as seen by CNN. As of approximately 12:15AM PST, Nov 3rd, here are the numbers as CNN is reporting them for both Ohio & Michigan.


So why does CNN have no problem calling Michigan for Kerry, but puts Ohio under "too close to call?" I guess we already know the answer, sigh.

I say this even though it's probably true that Kerry will win MI, just as Bush will win OH. But watching CNN twist this way and that rather than accept that their favored candidate has lost the election ... well, they're openly making fools of themselves now. And yes, I am kinda enjoying it, thank you!

UPDATE: Watching Dan Rather go thru the same process is also a treat. Now he's even arguing with Ed Bradley! Priceless.
