So, let us assess the reactions of the USA to Obama’s Magical Pretty Senator* World Tour.

You think *that* was geeky? Wait until you hit the end.

I’m sure that said reaction will be quite significant.

So, starting with Rasmussen, we have a six-point bounce… erm. Back down to two and margin-of-error, huh?

:crumpling up paper and tossing it in wastebasket:

Well, there’s always Gallup and its 9 8 6 4 point lead. Or, as Gallup put it on 7/23,”modest“…

:crumple:

OK, let’s try public reaction… 39% no opinion, huh? 41% among independents. “Unfairly positive” press coverage towards Obama tied with “about right” at 39%? Fav/Unfavs worse for Obama among GOP/independents since poll done the week before, better for McCain among GOP/independents?

:crumple:

OK, there’s the USA/Gallup poll – yeesh. That switch from RV to LV

:crumple:

Democracy Corps – no, wait, look at the battleground states and the way that 5 point lead becomes 1.

:crumple:

Let’s try Rasmussen again Obama trip: No Gain for the Democrat, No Pain for McCainBelief Growing That Reporters are Trying to Help Obama WinHalf of Voters Still Say U.S. is Winning the War on Terror

:crumple::crumple::crumple:

Well, maybe the journalists… President Obama Continues Hectic Victory TourObama Arrogance WatchHopium helps you forget several unpleasant facts… Oh, wait, here’s a good one: Obama notes ‘tragic’ US past: American history’s “sad” aspects require action, the senator tells cheering journalists

:crumple::crumple::crumple::crumple, then rustle as the pyramid of paper collapses:

I guess that pretty much leaves only one question, then. Tell me something, Senator: last week, when you and your group were running the private sessions of your Presidential cosplay – did you use Mind’s Eye Theater for your ruleset, or did you go with the NERO LARP rules? I would normally guess the former, but from what I saw of the primaries you have all the hallmarks of being a stone-cold Palladium Games fan.
