How the hell can you call an election with any kind of credibility with more than 75% of the polls still to close??

It seems ridiculous to me, but they announced a "Conservative Government" 10 minutes ago.

They didn't specify but there is an obnoxious "Conservative Government" slapped on across the screen every few minutes.

As I can't stomach it, I'm watching the CBC.

Quote of the night from Peter Mansbridge (to a reporter who just interviewed the lead singer of The Barenaked Ladies):

"Well, we all sure like Barenaked Ladies"

How does that translate to calling a Conservative win?? I know all of Alberta is Cons...but isn't much of the rest of the country up for grabs??
