    Wink 1000 delusional people show up at John McCain rally smelling victory

    From the St. Petersburg Times via Greg Sargent:


    About 30 minutes before John McCain is scheduled to lead a rally outside Raymond James Stadium, looks like maybe 1,000 people here. What's up with that? On the day before the election? Bush drew at least 15,000 people to a rally just across the street on the Sunday before the 04 election.

    "We are the quiet majority that goes out and gets things done..I smell victory,'' said state Rep. Kevin Ambler. Good thing he smells it, because it's hard to see it with this crowd.

    McCain's Crowd Disturbingly Small, Ten Times Less Than Planned For

    November 3, 2008 10:14 AM








    Something was missing from the first of John McCain's seven campaign stops today: the crowd.
    Kicking off the last day of the election in Tampa, Florida, John McCain was welcomed by a roughly 1,000 voters. Compare that to the 15,000 people that President Bush drew to a rally in Tampa on the eve of the 2004 election. "What's up with that?" wrote Adam Smith at the St. Petersburg Times.
    Even Fox News had a bit of difficulty spinning the whole thing. Carl Cameron, who is following the Senator at every stop on Monday, said the crowd size was likely "a little bit disturbing" for the McCain campaign. He added that organizers had set up the venue predicting ten times the number of attendees.

    "Last night in Miami Sen. McCain arrived for a midnight rally and had more than 10,000 people in Miami. Today in Tampa, for a morning event, it's a small crowd, only about 1,000. And I can tell you is it looks like it was set up with the perimeter and all for about 10 times this crowd. In addition, you'll note that there are no actual McCain signs here. This is one of the events that is put on, ostensibly paid for by the Republican Party."
    Later in his segment, Cameron tried to explain the empty venue as a byproduct of volunteers being dispatched for get-out-the-vote activities. But he couldn't hide the fact that the Tampa kick-off wasn't the best start for a long day.
    "They believe that their 72-hour get-out-the-vote exercise will make the difference," he said. "That is one of the reasons why the size of this crowd is a little bit disturbing for the McCain campaign."

    They held the rally in the Ray Jay parking lot. Not even in the stadium.

    Pfft. I will contain my glee for November 5th. If we have a President by then. As a rule, I try not to freak out about stuff until it's time to start freaking out. Same thing goes for celebrating.

    Our elementary school award ceremonies had more attendees.

    He is tenacious, that one, McCain.

    RNC has no McCain signs at a McCain rally? No McCain signs at that Palin rally recently either. I think the RNC is closing up shop on McCain, and they're probably glad to do so.
