PROPHECY: Last week, Jonah Goldberg wrote:
Imagine the Democrats do rally around Obama. Imagine the media invests as heavily in him as I think we all know they will if he's the nominee — and then imagine he loses. I seriously think certain segments of American political life will become completely unhinged.
Now note this email from an Andrew Sullivan reader:
Watched the NH returns with some friends last night, and something quite unexpected happened when the AP called it for Clinton -- inexplicable ANGER. I was surrounded by people in their early 30's, registered Democrats, receptive to the Clintons in the 90's, and I swear I thought someone was going to throw their wine glass at the tube during her 'victory' speech.
And that's just one primary! All is proceeding as Jonah has foreseen. I wonder if Glenn Greenwald has figured things out yet. Probably not . . . .
UPDATE: Check out this post over at DailyKos, and note the accompanying poll on whether the New Hampshire primary was rigged by those evil, Hillary-loving dudes at Diebold. (Bumped).
