Brother Barack's Travelin' Salvation Show

KIRO talker Dori Monson has a great story on his website busting Barack Obama for some shameless histrionics and cheap parlor tricks worthy of a tawdry televangelist:
A Wall Street Journal writer, James Taranto, has uncovered a hilarious and puzzling coincidence at 5 different Sen. Obama campaign speeches over the last few months, including the recent speech in Seattle.

Dori and listeners have found one other Sen. Obama incident posted on YouTube where a person near the stage faints. Sen. Obama responds to each incident with the same routine and phrases.

Is it phoney, orchestrated, manufactured campaign theatrics or is it merely physiological coincidence? You be the judge.
Here are some more instances:

Oops... looks like one of Obama's fans accidentally went to the wrong speech:


Bill doesn't seem to have the same level of sympathy.

Too bad Gore didn't have a polished response:


I'm sorry--I generally vote conservative, but I'm not partisan enough to consider this staged. It isn't surprising that his response is relatively similar each time--I mean it's the same guy.

Hardcore partisan conspiracists do little more than alienate mainstream voters with conspiracy gossip like this (whether they are from the right or left).

Just my 2 cents...
