Have you heard about the women fainting at Barack Obama’s rallies? Apparently it’s happening with more and more frequency. The video montage below gives you a little bit of an idea of what’s happening.
The Los Angeles Times blog describes one incident as follows:
‘Barack Obama’s first and only rally on election day came to a sudden and lengthy stop when a young woman in the Dartmouth College gym fainted, and was eventually rolled off on a gurney by emergency medical technicians.
‘At first Obama half-narrated the episode, saying soothing things like, “She’s OK,” “She’s talking.” But the longer she lay on the floor, the quieter Obama got, standing on the podium, arms folded, looking worried as the medical crew worked.’
