Victory, and rumors of violence?
For the record, I still believe that McCain will win -- I have never wavered from that assessment.
MSM reassurance for agitated Obama cultists may be found here. You're gonna need something a lot stronger on Nov. 5, though.
Everyone seems to agree that the race is largely coming down to Pennsylvania. I thought that the "new politics" was supposed to consign all those bitter gun-clinging rural swing-state NASCAR low-information typical white persons to the dustbin of electoral history as being irrelevant to the Messiah's shiny new coalition? Guess that hasn't quite worked out as planned?
There have been persistent and ominous mumurs that, if Obama loses the election, riots will erupt. There have actually been a few cases of figures on the left hinting at this, in terms that do suggest that they are trying to threaten the electorate (examples here and here). However, when I googled "Obama riots loses" for more examples, what I got was almost entirely links to conservatives speculating about the possibility of riots if Obama loses.
Such talk is shameful. Violent temper tantrums by losers are not in the American tradition. The defeats of Kerry, Gore, Dole, Bush I (in 1992), Dukakis, Mondale, and so on did not trigger significant outbreaks of violence. Yes, it's true that some Obama cultists seem to be especially fanatical, and I suppose it's possible that his defeat could lead to rioting (and the authorities are prepared), but why play with fire by speculating before the fact?
