Fake fanaticism or real rapture?
Either way would be kind of disturbing.
During 2008, Michael Medved on his radio program brought to my attention a strange phenomenon of people fainting at Barack Obama campaign rallies. It was still happening in 2009, 2010; and, well, it is happening again in 2012:
For President Obama, the fainting spells are back.
A woman listening to the president discuss his energy policy in Maryland on Thursday fainted among the standing-room-only crowd.
At a rally at Prince Georges Community College in Largo, Md., Mr. Obama had veered off his prepared remarks to attack his Republican critics when he interrupted himself to alert officials that someone had fainted. Before returning to his message, he dispensed a little advice.
Remember next time, if youre going to stand for a long time, you got to eat, he said to laughs from the crowd. Its true. You got to get something to eat. You got to get some juice.
More like, ease off drinking so much of the kool-aid. :p
A New York Times reporter at the speech said another person had collapsed, but he could not say whether that person had fainted.
It is the third time this month that someone has fainted during one of the presidents speeches.
What is the deal, here? In 2008, pundits like Michael Medved and James Taranto speculated whether any of this is staged, given the frequency along with senator Obama's stock response. Taranto is disturbed just as much if this isn't staged and people are in fact swooning over the cult of personality that is Barack Obama.

The audacity and outright lies he puts in his self-congratulatory speeches are so outrageous they give ME the vapors...
Yay! Pimp that FlappyAsses stuff!
No comments from you.. just pimping. Everyone can see that be clicking your name.
Who do you work for? How much do you earn for spamming FR with this stuff?
Fainting while standing for long periods is fairly common, even among healthy military personnel on parade.
I was just going to mention that. You aren’t supposed to lock your legs.
About as much as you do acting as the self-appointed Posting Police.
Put a sock in it. It’s tiresome.
My guess is, it’s the stench.
Was Earnest Angsley spotted in the audience?
I'm not making a career of excerpting some lame-ass blog.
Your sock is misdirected, O pod.
They’re being hypnotized. Its true.
Tell me, when was the last time this maggot made a comment?
What was the date when he last did anything besides pimp a blog?
Can someone be overcome by BS? ;-)
They’re called hobbies.
Or read a book. I don’t care.
Who the h-e-double-toothpicks do you think you are? Eric Holder?
A fellow who notices patterns.
I think Scotty would say “laddy, you are a wee bit anal”
Maybe I’m just a wee bit opposed to seeing blogpimps use Free Republic for personal gain.
You may be in favor of that.
Some of us who contribute are not.
If I go away from FR and come back in 6 months or a year, you’ll still be doing the same baloney.
The owner of this site either approves of (or doesn’t disapprove of) people pimping their blogs. There are far worse offenders than Starman.
So, give it up, for Lent.
JimRob has made it clear that just b/c you contribute, it doesn’t give you any sort of special dispensation or trump card. He treats you precisely in the same way as if you don’t contribute.
That trump card you are holding is a Joker.
Yes, I am consistent.

You miss the point.
Folks who contribute don't do so in order to fund some blogger's business model using FR as free advertising.
Has little or nothing to do with Jim.
Blog pimps are using FR. I don't like it.
It's really quite simple.
