Joyous day! It seems like presidential voting will go smoothly today, and we’ll get a clear winner before the California polls close. Which means there’s only ten more days of national election coverage!
Major news outlets have piled such unreasonable resources into covering the campaigns that they physically cannot cover anything else for a week and a bit. A lot of journalists need retraining. And besides, they can squeeze more infotainment out of the election. There will be time to spin conspiracy theories, no matter who wins. And the losing VP candidate will say something crazy in a few days, so that will be infotainmentive.

And that will take us to next, glorious Friday when this horseshit finally ends.
And in the mean time, everyone will go on pretending that the most informative political analysis comes from a Spin Doctor lying to you.
