According to the panting, doom-filled prophecies from teh Doughy Pantload, Obama’s win in the Iowa caucuses could lead to the breakdown of society as a whole if he goes on to lose the nomination.
I think it's worth imagining a certain scenario. Imagine the Democrats do rally around Obama. Imagine the media invests as heavily in him as I think we all know they will if he's the nominee -- and then imagine he loses. I seriously think certain segments of American political life will become completely unhinged. I can imagine the fear of this social unraveling actually aiding Obama enormously in 2008.
Great googly-moogly, I wonder which “segments” he could possibly be referring to? It couldn’t be black people, could it? Nah. That would just be dumb.
Poor Jonah. If it wasn't for nepotism and wingnut welfare, his career would probably consist of asking "Do you want fries with that?"
