Exit poll this! Vote Obama.

There are a lot of ridiculous reasons to back a political candidate this early in the election cycle. One Iowa voter's frontrunner is another Nevada voter's Kucinich. Either way, after years of digesting primetime punditry from the O'Reillys', Matthews' and Scarboroughs' of the world, I'm completely cutting myself off from cable news nonsense.

No more "insight" from the frontlines of the latest "Did Hillary cry real tears?" media circus. No more McCain straight-talk. No more 9-11 grandstanding from Guiliani. Thanks to the Las Vegas Sun, I've already made up my mind.

I'm voting for Barack Obama.

According to the paper, the Illinois senator's favorite TV show is "The Wire," and his favorite character, Omar.

“That’s not an endorsement. He’s not my favorite person, but he’s a fascinating character,” Obama said, while noting in an audio clip that Omar, who is gay, is also “the toughest, baddest guy on the show.”

Hey, no need to convince me, Obama. You had my vote when you answered the question with "The Wire."

The Chicago Tribune's TV Blog goes on to point out that Sen. Hillary Clinton told Essence magazine awhile back that her favorite show is “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Hmmm. How ... safe.

Does anyone think Mitt Romney's answer would be "Big Love?"
