Breaking The Code

I thought the discussions on all the cable news nets were hilarious last night. From Brit Hume’s show on Fox and Larry King on CNN, everyone talked in these absurd hypotheticals “If Arnold Schwarzenegger wins, this will mean blah blah blah.” “If he won, it was because, yada yada yada.” “If Gray Davis turns out to be the loser tonight…” etc. Nobody ever once asked what a Bustamante or continued Davis governship would be like. You’d have to be an idiot not to figure out that Arnold one. I understand the argument that the networks shouldn’t release exit poll numbers, but I find it a bit creepy that all of these journalists are pretending not to know something which is so clearly affecting their analysis.
