Holy Crap! CNN Just Called NH for McCain!

It is currently 8:11 P.M. Polls have only been closed for 11 - that's right, eleven - minutes. CNN, acting like people who enrolled in the easiest degree program that they could while in college, has already called the GOP primary for John McCain. That's with 11% of the precincts reporting, only a smidgen over 20,000 votes.

Folks, I am not usually for government regulation of the press. However, I do see the argument for true election reform - in not allowing the mental midgets of the mainstream media to call races at ridiculously early intervals - as serving a legitimate government interest.

MORE: CNN is citing their exit polling. Were those conducted by the same exit pollsters who performed so flawlessly in 2000 in Florida and 2004 in Ohio?

Now I picked McCain earlier today, and I think that he's going to win New Hampshire when all the votes are counted. However, that doesn't excuse CNN's reckless brand of pseudo-journalism.
