Every time there is some sort of campaign event, everybody argues over how many people there were. The latest is the McCain/Palin rally, where numbers have ranged from less than 10,000 to 28,000.
Well, at the McCain/Palin rally, the entire area was a security checkpoint. I'm guessing so are the Obama rallies.
Why not just put someone at the entrance to the security area with a little clicker, and click each person coming into the place? Then you would know. So why don't they do this?
Probably because nobody really wants to know.
Anyway, I stood in line for an hour waiting to get into the rally. I could believe there were 20,000 people. I've got pictures which I could probably count if I had to.
But frankly, I'd love for the Democrats to believe that only a thousand people showed up, that we are all really demoralized, and that, as one local opinion columnist wrote, the race is over and Obama already won.
