The Huge Show, Huge

Romney made a huge show of going to Sin City to kiss the ring of The Donald (again) despite George Will making a huge show of calling Trump a 'bloviating ignoramus'. Notice I'm repeating 'huge show', it's because that's all they've got left. The irony of George Will calling anybody a 'bloviating ignoramus' is the very definition of the pot calling the kettle black. 

The thing is that Mittens is falling so fast in the polls that the election could be rendered moot. Now only polling 35% nationwide, including averaging in states that never accepted the surrender of Lee as the final word on their secession from the Union. It's not so much that Obama is winning over the flat earth crowd, but rather they aren't going to vote in big numbers. The new Millennial Generation is going to vote however. They are the biggest generation in sheer numbers ever (outstripping the baby boomers). They represent 2 million new voters a year and are motivated like no generation since the Progressives of a hundred years ago. This means that just between now and the election nearly one million newly minted 18 year old Americans will join Obama's Forward movement. In short Obama is gaining voters faster than Mitt Romney can commit verbal gaffes. 

The media is wallowing in Super Pac money so they aren't going to admit that it's all but over. And, that's a good thing. If they weren't doing it just for the money you could call them Patriotic, even call them the Liberal Media (as if there could be such a thing). If they keep the "race close" despite all evidence to the contrary, they will produce a huge turnout of Democrats. This really could be a huge show.
