Video: String of fainting incidents at Obama rallies
- This is a normal happening on the campaign trail. Nothing special.
- This is an out of the ordinary happening, but just a coincidence.
- People infected with Obamamania are taking tips from Beatlesmania, faintings and all.
- It's a campaign ploy, which is designed to give the impression that Obama exerts a strong effect on his audience. He gets to play the role of campassionate (offering his water bottle), organized ("is there a medic?"), authoritative ("give her space!") leader in the face of a crisis. Plus it makes for a memorable day.
I wonder what Obama Messiah would have to say about this development?
