Riots if Obama loses, riots if he wins

One way or another, the forces of Hope will cause trouble:
Though they'd rather not discuss it, local law enforcement agencies are planning for possible civil unrest following Tuesday's election.
"We have no intelligence indicating there will be problems," Fulton County Assistant Police Chief Gary Stiles said. "Law enforcement must deal with 'what ifs' and worst-case scenarios. What if there's an extended power outage at a polling place?"
Similar preparations are under way across the country, fueled partly by Internet rumors and crystallized within recent comments by Democratic strategist James Carville on CNN.
"But you stop and contemplate this country if [Barack] Obama goes in and he has a consistent five-point lead and loses the election, it would be very, very, very dramatic out there," he said.
Another concern: excessive celebrations following a potentially historic outcome, as
sometimes seen following sports championships.
This scenario has got Donald Douglas thinking of . . . David Bowie? Eh. Anyway, you notice that there's no suggestion police are worrying Republican riots: "Say, Muffie, have you seen my five-iron? I'm thinking I'll go smash some windows and bash a few folks over the head . . ."

  1. Why you won't see Republican/conservative rioters if Obama wins?

    Simple really.

    Liberals riot. Conservatives take careful aim. ;)
