So why is it that Democrat-leaning precincts reported in late, as in Missouri and Virginia? Aren't those supposed to be the urban precincts, and aren't urban areas supposed to have the latest gee-whiz technology? Maybe it's the Ghet-Toe that's reporting in late, and maybe they have bad election machinery b/c, you know, the Man hates them.

But Falls Church? Oh yeah, bronze-age conditions out there. We'll naturally hear from the coal counties much earlier -- they'll be e-mailing in their votes while the Falls-Churchers are still loading their paper ballots onto pony carts.

Give. Me. A. Break.
