What if He Doesn't?

Barack was ordained by the media months ago. All this election stuff is just a formality.
Election Day is less than two weeks away, and Chicago could be home to the biggest political party in the country. Construction is underway for a massive stage in Grant Park where Barack Obama could declare victory on election night.
Americans have been convinced, as was the intention, that an Obama victory is unavoidable.
No one really knows how many people will come to the lakefront's Grant Park on Nov. 4. Weather will likely play a role. It was warm and sunny a few days ago in St. Louis when Barack Obama drew an estimated 100,000 to the banks of the Mississippi River.
While Americans are convinced of Barack's inevitability, the ruling class is not.
Police departments in cities across the country are beefing up their ranks for Election Day, preparing for possible civil unrest and riots after the historic presidential contest.
Civil unrest? They must mean if Barack loses.
Public safety officials said in interviews with The Hill that the election, which will end with either the nation’s first black president or its first female vice president, demanded a stronger police presence.
No one's going to be rioting over Sarah, are they?
The Oakland police last faced big riots in 2003 when the Raiders lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl. Officials are bracing themselves in case residents of Oakland take Obama’s loss badly.
The suggestion seems to be that voters will be irate, convinced that there's been a theft, if Obama doesn't ascend to the thrown as promised. Which, judging from the way the race is portrayed in the media, would be a reasonable response.
