Mark Lindeman:

Crikey. I need to rig an RSS aggregator to alert me to new content with the "Exit Polls" tag, so I can curl into fetal position in real-time.

I like this from Roger Simon: "'I don't know why we are doing it,' one person involved in the entrance polling told me. 'Why are we trying to do something -- no matter how good it is -- that might be incorrect?'" Soundtrack credit to Country Joe and the Fish.

(Naw, I know, I look forward to the "nifty information" produced by the poll as much as anyone. Well, maybe not quite as much. Maybe I'm getting too old for this sort of thing.)

I also sense a new drinking game (entrance polls aside): one shot for every claim by a Ron Paul supporter that the caucus has been rigged against him. Extreme caution: please set a safe limit in advance.
