If I read the story correctly ...
it's about 10.000 Nevada-people going to see her. Not 10.000 Alaska-people. So this subject line seems to be just as misleading as a certain previous one.
It's quite understandable you want to see somebody you never heard of until 2 weeks ago, if she might become VP.
The story does say Carson City, Nevada
turns out that other small rally was actually smaller than advertised, at least in counting those "against" because other sources say that figure included BOTH the against and the counter group that was FOR Sarah who showed up.
You show up for the band, you get counted at the door.
I guess no one is checking to see if you are there to cheer or boo the lead singer.
different sides of the street.
The pro Palin group was on the other side of the street, so the driveby video was very careful to keep a close focus on just the AGAINST people they wanted to portray. Immediately they loaded the video to every Obamania and feminazi site they could. I will give them credit for trashing the whole internet with it and stuffing Google returns.
I read this;
Denny and Melanie Doyal got in line Saturday three hours before Sarah Palin's first solo campaign rally outside Alaska. They were among the latecomers.
Seemed it was outdoors in Alaska, but I must have read too quick, lol.
Seemed it was outdoors in Alaska,
Thought it was outdoors in Alaska?
It was in Nevada.
It was awkwardly worded.
I had to read it twice before understanding why they were mentioning Carson City.
Have to stop reading Bloomberg
Ever been there....
Have you ever been to Carson City? I have been there several times, its population is about 55,000. It's not the biggest of towns. A gathering that pulls 10,000 people is not common. Knowing the size of the population, do you now have a reference for the "Is this what 10,000 people looks like?" line by the Lieutenant Governor?
I was embarrassed for Damon
He was being a bit too earnest in expressing his fears. Be that as it may... I think the republicans have done Palin a disservice by trying to make her look more accomplished than she is. To my point of view, she has done enough already to at least be considered as VP. Let her prove her metal in interviews and debates now. Should she prove to be unaware of important details, then no amount of pumping up her resume will make up for a lack of ability or knowledge.
I also object to resume pumping
I think she's been a victim of it, but even that doesn't approach the level of what's been done in and for Obama. It's a turn off to see resume pumping by both groups, it says they both feel their candidate needs a little more than they currently are. Of course the problem there is the Democrats have the ticket reversed if we are talking qualifications based on resume. Having Biden as the VP I think was a mistake, it makes Biden look like some sort of Affirmative Action plan to help Obama get elected. I think the Biden choice took some of the steam out of the Obama locomotive, it didn't fit with the rhetoric Obama had been using his whole campaign. It just feels like Biden and McCain should be debating each other with Obama and Palin facing off in the VP debates. It's sure an odd election year.
Biden was an uncomfortable choice IMHO
Years from now, it will be interesting if we find out more about how his choice came about. If Biden's ticket loses, we might find out sooner.
