The Media Script

I'm not imagining this, people. From TPM:

What's going on? Every thing that I think should be a plus for Obama turns out to be much more complicated. I'm a little worried about tomorrow night. 80,000 cheering people. Fantastic speech. Great spectacle. Am I going to wake up on Friday morning and find that all of these so-called positives are bad for Obama?
The race was too much of a landslide for Obama, and the media needed to ratchet up the drama so that the race appears closer than it really is. All News. All the Time. Will Obama pull it out in the end? Will McCan't surprise everyone? Will Bill attend Obama's speech?

And the big one: Will George W. Bush suspend the Constitution and declare martial law if Obama wins?
