That certainly was a close one

Neck and neck

A dead heat

Too close to call

Virtually tied

Plan on a long night

One of the things I hope people will take away from the election is a reminder of how bad journalistic group think has become. Narratives are converged upon instantly. treated as axioms no matter how many non-journalists reach a different conclusion, and defended with an appalling level of nastiness (just ask Nate Silver).

What's even more depressing is the realization that these pundits will pay no penalty for being willfully, arrogantly, childishly wrong.
