I So Totally Do Not Get Election Results

Or rather, how and why the media calls them. Right now, at 9:47, they're calling Maryland for Obama, but showing 0% of precincts reporting, and in that 0%, Clinton has 50% and Obama has 33%. Meanwhile, 49% of the vote in DC has been reported, and Obama is ahead with 76% to Clinton's 23% and they haven't called it. Huh?? Maybe they know that Friendship Heights hasn't been reported yet... I know it's all exit polls, but I thought they'd been scared off from exit polls, after the last few years. Where is D with reasoned explanation when I need him?! Oh yeah, he's on an exotic vacation, along with the rest of my nearest and dearest...
