18. Yes, that must be it.
Edited on Tue Jul-19-11 12:53 AM by Starbucks Anarchist
It had nothing to do with the fact that Obama:

- had massive grassroots support and support among many key demographics
- built a huge fundraising operation due in part to millions of small donors
- presented a youthful and sane alternative to McCain
- was the first AA with a real chance of winning the election
- drew massive crowds with soaring oratory
- constantly presented himself as intelligent and perceptive
- strove to not create divisions between opposing groups

Yep, it's just one big ol' conspiracy. There's just no way he could win an election. And the only reason sideshows like Alan Grayson, et al, can't win is because of "the machines," not their lack of accomplishments, over-reliance on theatrics, or unhinged personalities.
