Question of the day

We can be pretty darn sure that if Obama were to lose, given the present polling showing him winning, there’d be riots all across the fruited plain. But let’s assume he wins, here’s the question of the day:

    I disagree with your premise. I think a lot of Obama supporters, myself included, are prepared for his loss. I don’t care what the polls say he may not win and there is a reasonable expectation of him losing.

    Secondly, I don’t think there will be “out of control celebrations” either. I give my fellow Americans some credit. But, we shall see!

    I think this is part of the conservative talk radio and blogosphere’s plan to head off any possible talk about the Bradley effect. That’s why radio’s had the meme “LIBRALS WILL SCREAM RACISM IF OBAMA LOSES!” I’m sure they have some OTHER suggestion about why polls in some state would have Obama up by 13 points but Obama loses the actual vote. Maybe Republicans just lie to pollsters.

    Actually BubbaRich, it has been the Democratic strategists, like James Carville, who have brought this issue up.

    GF, that was a sloppy report. Do you think it was intentional? I know in the US, we don’t usually call you “cousin” if you happen to be in the same small family of 3.2 million people (Luo). Is Reuters usually that sloppy? Maybe it’s different in England, but then you’d have to say that everyone in Scotland is a “cousin” of each other.

    If ODINGA considers himself a close relative of Obama and they’re following the election closely in KENYA (which they are) then the question of CELEBRATIONS in Kenya would be RELATED to the story.
