Election day

I’m not liveblogging this thing, but I am clicking ‘refresh’ at a reasonable clip. I have to keep reminding myself that “Exit polls are meaningless! Exit polls are meaningless!” A slightly updated version of the chant I used earlier in the election, to wit, “Polls are meaningless! Polls are meaningless!” Both things are devices for keeping the chattering classes harmlessly occupied for a while. Who knows what might happen if they didn’t have this sort of thing to obsess over? But it’s the ballots that count.
