Sitting this one out

As a former resident of Massachusetts, it's been interesting for me to watch the Facebook reaction to the Coakley-Brown race purely from the psychology angle. I don't trust the polls or the probabilities in this case because there's so little prior information on their reliability before special elections that are unlikely to be replicated. So I'll just sit back and wait for the obvious narratives to come rolling in before the Daily Show tonight.
