I was at Kerry's Midnight Rally in Springfield Ohio. ZZZZZZZZZZZZ. And I was able to stay awake!!!! Barely.
Good show for Bush supporters. They had to bring up a big sign to hide the Bush supporters from the TV cameras. They did that right after the Bush supporters all started chanting "Flip Flop" and waving their arms. I am very encouraged.
His ship is sinking and he's too scared to go down with his ship.
Thank you for going there and telling us what went on. We couldn't tell by the tv cameras how many people were there.
Nice report kid. And nice work.
When did this "rally" first come to light?
Were they union people?
Did you think Kerry was slurring his words?
How many people?
I watched it, until everyone buy CSPAN 2 bailed on it. He started with about 5 minutes of new stuff and then lapsed into his standard stump speech.
Hey, this was supposed to be the beginning of Kerry's
Tet Offensive against Bush.
What went wrong?
Coverage of this in the Pravda Press should be fun.
Could you tell if he was drunk. We've had quite a debate here about that. Also, did he mention he was in Vietnam?
no kidding, did they hand out beer or cash to get the people to participate?
did not see or hear much enthusiasm.
Kerry looked like he was drunk or accidently took some of Mama-T's "headache medicine".
What was he drinking?
no way, he was in vietnam? doing what?
Here is Kerry's speech.
He said some important things, digging himself in deeper.
Kerry's Midnight speech (Domestic "priorities" are more important than lives of our troops)
Maybe Jim Rassmann will reverse roles and pull SKerry out of the water
I heard some yelling in the background and saw Kerry react momentarily, as if he was desperately trying to stay on his little white card notes, like he'd been jabbed...and then quickly bash Bush, turn a card over and go onto another point. The shouts were unnerving him and his tiny band of supporters. Kerry paced back and forth, babbbling, like he was on the Titanic. Edwards stood behind him. You could see his face flash by every once in a while as Kerry raced around. Edwards wore a look of helplessness. Or do I mean hopeless.
Did not have much time to plan ahead and we had plans already to go to a Party for George tonight. Poor planning on the part of the Kerry folks. All the folks who went to Bush parties were really psyched after the Convention and were ready to wave our Bush signs proudly.
I'm thinking he "sparked a bowl" before the speech and had the driver stop at Jack in the Box on the way to the hotel for tacos to satisfy the munchies.
Wow that's great that you went!!! We want any details possible! Did he actually talk to anyone who came to see him or did he just stagger in and out?
