Bachmann goes boom!

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

Unhinged Whack Job Authentique Michele Bachmann is having real problems after she called Barack Obama un-American and demanded investigations into the patriotism of Democrats in Congress.  So what's the title of the Christian Scientist Monitor story on her campaign problems?  "Bachmann's campaign implodes -- anti-Americans run wild." And how does The Fix describe the race?

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

The frenzy of voting in Georgia continues.  On Tuesday, I reported that an extraordinary amount of voting already had occurred in Georgia.  By that day, 499,582 persons had cast early ballots; that was already a total of 75,000 more early voters than we had seen during the entire 2004 early voting cycle in Georgia.  As of yesterday, just three days later, Georgia's Election Division had recorded 136,216 more ballots; in other words, the number of early ballots cast by Friday was more than 27 percent greater than the number of ballots cast on Tuesday.

Complacency

(Cross-posted at Clintonistas for Obama)

The Obama campaign apparently is worrying privately that we supporters of Barack Obama, sitting on top of an enduring lead, will grow complacent and assume we're just going to win this thing and forget to work, forget to give money, and forget to vote.
