Oh For God's Sake

Actual headline I saw on the Los Angeles Times website: "Democrats Condemn Media's Early Projections of Republican Victory"
Even before the polls closed in the West, the major television cable networks called the overall election a Republican victory and awarded the GOP control of the House of Representatives.

The only problem was that the call came from projections rather than actual results, since polls were still open in much of the country.

Democrats were not amused by the calls of victory coming as the party was still fighting crucial Senate and House races in states such as Nevada, California and Washington.

"I think that's a mistake," Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told reporters.

The count at that point was that Democrats had lost about 13 seats in the eastern part of the country. Republicans need a net gain of 39 seats to be the majority.

“Those were the [seats] who were expected to be called,” Van Hollen said of the first returns and again predicted Democrats would continue to control House despite weeks of polls predicting a GOP tidal wave breaking through Congress.
There are no words that can express my absolute lack of sympathy. What's next, complaints from ACORN about undercounted overseas military ballots?
