6. No offense intended. But you may not be old enough to see this in context, so let me say:
It is no big deal.

It is a blip.

The media is the one freaking out because they have no more control.

The Obama campaign.movement is a freight train picking up speed and heading into unknown territory.

The Powers That Be do NOT LIKE "unknown territory". They like "known territory". So they are trying to reassert control. But they have none.

They have been underestimating the intelligence of the American people for too long and they are about to learn that we are not stupid bulls to be led around by our noses forever.

This is an entirely unprecedented election. No predictions could possibly be accurate.

Chill out and watch. I have lost enough elections to know that this one is different.

People have had it and the pendulum is coming right back at us.
