His loss would be disastrous for the media and political establishment.
CLEVELANDIf Barack Obama wins the election, it will be historic. And if he loses, it will be pretty historic, too: It would mark the biggest collective error in the history of the media and political establishment
An Obama loss would mean the majority of pundits, reporters and analysts were wrong. Pollsters would have to find a new line of work, since Obama has been ahead in all 159 polls taken in the last six weeks. The massive crowds that have regularly turned out to see Obama would turn out to have meant nothing. This collective failure of elites would provide such a blast of schadenfreude that Republicans like Rush Limbaugh would be struck speechless (another historic first).
This situation lends a feeling of unreality to the proceedings as we begin to measure the time until Election Day in hours. It is the elephant on the campaign plane. No one is letting on. Journalists aren't supposed to. Plus, we've been wrong so often, and politics can be so unpredictable, it would be dumb to say that Obama is going to win big.

repubs for stealing the election...
I would say “who gets the credit?”. The credit goes to the grace of God alone.
His illegal aunt in Boston.
If ASSama loses Whitey will be blamed and there will be massive riots.
And the MSM and pundits will continue as before, no change.
I’d place the blame on the nameless operative who thought that Joe the Plumber would be a wonderful photo-op.
Hmm, that's a tough question ... how about ... George Bush?
oh there is just so much blame to go around!! I can't wait.
The loss would be blamed on voter fraud - massive voter fraud - and the Republicans will be blamed for stealing another election. There could be no other reason the Messiah would lose.
I want to see Keith Olberdumass head explode.
Someone’s getting nervous that the truth is about to be exposed. He’s been looking at the real polls.
Pray for McCain and Our Troops
Need to change that first word “IF” to “When” to be more accurate.
My neighbor and I discussed who was going to win the election. We actually have a bet on it. I have been saying McCuda for months.
She could not believe that I was still saying McCuda was going to win.
She said,”The everyone in the world believes he is going to win.”
I said, “If everyone was always right, everyone would be rich.”
Palin. She’s the new whipping “boy” for the pressers. It was her ugly mean spirited out of context attacks that lowered the level of discourse.
Besides that, she scares them to death because they know that she is a draw, and they have to try to destroy her by 2012 when they will not be able to stand against her.
