So many bubbles, so little time

Here is what Sen. Obama's Rasmussen numbers look like
This is an update to an earlier diary
For an excellent primer on how bubbles form and collapse, I recommend this article from an excellent blog on the housing market (since this is the most recent example of a bubble)
The various events referred to in the first plot are:
(a) YouTube videos (this was pointed out by J Armstrong)
These videos were viewed a combined 11M times.
(b) Michelle Obama "For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country"
The rest probably do not need any explanation!
PS: Before I get gored by Sen. Obama's supporters, I should point out that it is somewhat hard to make a similar "bubble" like analogy for Sen. Clinton's support ~ she never had those kind of support levels. And yes, I am just having a little fun. Do not take me too seriously :)
