Ignore the Exit Polls and the Projections

It's important today that everyone ignore the media exit polls. They are virtually guaranteed to heavily favor Obama, and publicizing them is to depress and dispirit you. Good, bad, indifferent -- whatever they say, just ignore. Tune them out.
It gets worse. It's almost guaranteed that the networks (some of them anyway) and other media outlets are going to call the election for the Sawdust Messiah before some of you have even voted. Do not listen. Do not fail to do your duty. The major media outlets are not disinterested observers: they are not reporting, they are participating in producing the outcome. Do not let them take your vote.
Wherever you are, turn off the TV, shut down the computer, get to the polls and vote.
