I think it's worth imagining a certain scenario. Imagine the Democrats do rally around Obama. Imagine the media invests as heavily in him as I think we all know they will if he's the nominee — and then imagine he loses. I seriously think certain segments of American political life will become completely unhinged. I can imagine the fear of this social unraveling actually aiding Obama enormously in 2008. Forget Hillary's inevitability. Obama has a rendezvous with destiny, or so we will be told. And if he's denied it, teeth shall be gnashed, clothes rent and prices paid.
What Jonah Goldberg is trying to dog whistle here is that the negroes will riot if Obama loses the general election, so white people may relunctantly have to vote for him so they are safe to watch episodes of Battlestar Galactica on their high definition televisions.
