* Gail Collins to Obama supporters: calm down

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 11, 2008

Gail Collins’ column in today’s New York Times contains some excellent, calming thoughts. Gail writes …

  • It has come to our attention that a large number of Democrats have gone completely nuts about Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.
  • He’s going to lose! Sarah Palin is getting all the attention! The Republicans are so mean! Why isn’t he tougher?
  • If the Obama brain trust seems relatively serene compared with its seething base, it’s because they live in the Electoral College world, where the presidential race only takes place in a third of the country.
  • They don’t care about national polls.
  • The people who haven’t decided who they want to vote for by now aren’t going to make up their minds until the last minute.
  • Just chill for a few weeks until the debates start and let the Sarah Palin thing play itself out.
