      Just…WOW! GA voters, facilitated through the hard work of county election & poll workers, have shattered the old Early Vote turnout, with 300,438 Georgians casting their votes today. They blew up the old record of 233k votes in a day. Way to go voters & election workers. #gapol pic.twitter.com/rYbmpjAs43 — Gabriel Sterling (@GabrielSterling) November […]

    • The Decline & Fall Of The Soviet Union
      Our society seems fascinated by the fall of empires and nations. You rarely see a book on the “birth” of Rome, say, it’s the collapse we care about.

Reality Check

For the irrationally exuberant and the temporarily dismayed, it is helpful to keep the following in mind:

  • Obama has yet to win any SuperDuper Tuesday states and it is *highly* unlikely that he will win NJ or NY.
  • The win in South Carolina might be a pyrrhic victory. Perception sometimes is reality.
  • The racial narrative was played by Obama’s camp, not Clinton’s.
  • It is impolite to boo any politician in your party. If you must show your displeasure, remain silent. Boos generally backfire while silence is golden.
  • The Big Dawg was actually very generous towards Obama. Obama has had it EASY.
  • The media is fluffing its favorites and trying to take out the strongest candidates because it wants a super, super nailbiting finish in November. It’s good for ratings.
  • Super, super nailbiting finishes in November are bad for America because the GOP has a death grip on the mechanisms of government and has rigged the election gain. We have to win by overwhelming margins.
  • Change for what?
  • College educated voters in younger than 60 will vote for Clinton. New Jersey voters aren’t so easily bamboozled.

  1. Each on of those is a DK diary waiting to happen. I’ve made a five-day plan for pro-Clinton diaries, and if all goes well I’ll churn one out tonight. The race thing in particular is worth a few doctoral dissertations.

  2. I’ve been saying that for a while:

    Change to what?? Change what?

    Obama is a brand, and just came up with a marketing slogan. That’s all.
