Obama pulls out: ND, GA, etc.

Hopus interruptus:
Barack Obama, who has deployed more than 50 staffers in North Dakota in an attempt to become the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry the state since 1964, is pulling out.
LA Times blogs expands the list of states where Hope came up short:
Earlier, Obama halted television advertising in Georgia. Idaho was conceded a Democratic write-off early on, as is Alaska now.
(Via Gabriel at AOSHQ.) The fact that that Team Obama kept 50 paid staffers -- FIFTY! -- in North Dakota past Labor Day is a testimony to the idiocy of the Axelrod-Plouffe brain trust. What a colossal waste of money and manpower.
