At this point, barring some kind of eleventh-hour surprise (“Bin Laden Found in Obama Guest House; Video Evidence of Long-Term Menage A Trois with Obamas” . . . “Palin Voluntarily Withdraws her Nomination; McCain Selects Schwarzenegger as Replacement” li), I think that if Obama loses on Tuesday there will only be one reason: the “Bradley Effect.”[/li]
It strikes me that this will be nearly as outrageous an injustice and [understatement]disappointment[/understatement] as the assassination of Martin Luther King, certainly it would overshadow the perceived injustice of the Rodney King verdict. Both of course led to riots.
Frankly, I’m in those shoes? I’d certainly need some effort to talk myself out of it.
What do we think the likelihood of riots will be if the election gets Bradleyed?
