New Hampshire primary

I don’t usually write about politics (on purpose), but I had to laugh at the way all the pundits got it wrong. The lesson: Just because everyone says it’s true, doesn’t make it true.

Lesson #2: exit polls are completely unreliable (again). Obama won the exit-poll vote, but lost.

Of course when that happened with Kerry in '04 it was a called big evil conspiracy.
