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.
Lawrence Eagleburger is pulling no punches!!!
False polls, MSM cheerleaders, and Whitey. The perfect storm for a historic political upset. We will know by 8 or 9 tomorrow if McCain has a shot. He will most likely hold Florida, all the South, and has a wonderful chance taking NC, VA, and PA.
The OBOTS will blame the Coal Miners + Bigot anti-illegal immis, Racist Rs & Ds + Bush, Cheney, Sarahcuda, McSame + + + they will blame the USA for existing.
Whoever it is... he’s white.
Funny thing is, the dimwits are predicting O will win big. The boneheads on This Week gave O huge EV's. George Will predicted 378 for O.
I can't believe O would win, much less that big.
HE appears to be sitting this one out...
I don’t know about riots, but racism will be blamed as the cause of O’s defeat.
Chris Rock - I hear he’s calling for race riots
It will, just after his head spins whilst screaming “DIEBOLD”!
God never sits it out. The outcome of tomorrow will not be a surprise to Him, and will fit in His plans perfectly. Whatever happens, we are all in His hands. That is the only thing that allows me to sleep at night.
He’s blunt, isn’t he!
Good luck at the dentist - my least favorite thing to do.
The angry WHITE MALE.
IM SURE I WILL BE COMING HOME WITH TAMPONS HANGING OUTTA MY MOUTH.....EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What’s really weird is that even if Obama wins, the media are still going down. This guy’s election isn’t going to turn the newspaper industry around, or suddenly put NBC and CBS on top again. No way. The media have already lost THEIR election.
Could it beeee.......Joe the Plumber??
Please. Blame me.
Really? I must have missed the media covering all of these huge crowds in the last 2 months.
I feel like a character in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" who took some bad LSD.
I predict that if Obama loses there will be weeks of bloody rioting with hundreds of thousands of Americans killed and vast sections of our major cities turned to rubble at which time John McCain for the good of the country will concede his victory and Obama will become president.
Obama will then declare martial law and the real killing will begin under the control of number of groups that have actively supported him.
On a lesser note I haven’t been able to pick the winner of the super bowl every year since it’s inception and view the lottery as money wasted except for my weekly donation to the education of our children.
I do believe however that should massive rioting take place McCain will concede a landslide victory for the good of the country rather then let our cities burn and our families die.
I think the Demorats did a HORRIBLE job of vetting their Presidential candidate!!!
If 0bama loses, thats what Ill point to. With the irrational mood of the country, a Dem candidate should/could(?) win with 60% of the vote. 0bama has so much baggage, lack of experience, stupid ideas, etc. Dems just went for a pretty face.
FINALLY news about 0bamas poor character, decision-making, etc. is coming out. I think its turning the tide (hopefully not too little too late).
Dems dont care about true experience, character, judgement - only power - and its showing. THATS what we have to remind people of.
Blame the Democratic party for not properly “vetting” their lead candidate.
My thoughts exactly. The MSM can talk about their erroneouse predictions now, but after the election it would be racism, voter suppression, greed, anti-Americanism, etc. that will be blamed; not the politically naive views of the MSM idol.
That being said, the big question after tomorrow will be who’s to blame for letting Obama win.
I seriously think the blame is Obama himself for picking Biden instead of Hillary. If he picked Hillary, I don’t think we would have had a chance. Thank God Obama is not very smart. lol.
They will say the machines were fixed.
