It’s The Obama Factor, Stupid

I’m beginning to think the AJC and the GDP DPG deserve each other’s company for the rest of eternity, or some other such kinda hell. Here’s a non-pithy article about the record number of Georgia voters, most of whom voted Democratic, complete with one measly sentence about… Obama.

Yeah him, that rather charismatic dude with the soaring oratorical, inspirational gifts who’s box most of those asking for that Dem ballot pressed at the polls yesterday.

Instead, the AJC article about record droves of Dems voting in Georgia concluded with this WTF? quote from Jim Coonan, an Atlanta-based Democratic “political consultant:”

But it’s just one tool, he (Coonan) said.

“I want to know who in Dacula is concerned about the environment. I want to know who in East Side in Cobb County is a pro-choice voter. I want to know who in Peachtree City subscribes to the New York Review of Books, in addition to a single-point of voting history,” he said.

Obama fever – catch it elsewhere.

    SpaceyG: Maybe I’m still living in the Web 1.0 world you prattle on about so much, but I’m not sure how the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) is to blame here.

    Wait, GDP…sheesh (got it). I must have had a brain seizure last night. Probably from reading such drivel.

    On the one hand, SpaceyG in her “God everyone is such an idiot besides me” way is right. 1.05 million people voted in the Democratic primary on Tuesday. That’s an increase of over 400,000 from 2004. However, there may be some other explainations besides Obamamania (although I think that’s part of it):
    – The primary is much earlier this year and the race is generally undecided.
    – There isn’t the feeling this year as there was in 2004 that the Democrats might actually win. Despite his foibles, Bush was pretty unbeatable last time
    – The race was pretty much over by the time Georgia voted in 2004. Even though Edwards did well in Georgia, Kerry had pretty much shored up the delegates he needed.

    I have no idea what the AJC quote means. That’s not unusual though
