9000 in the rain

I'm swinging between hope for a landslide and anxiety about a stolen election today but this definitely made me feel better.

Palin cancelled her rally because of the weather. Guess she doesn't want take any chances on ruining her $150,000 wardrobe but Obama held his rally and 9,000 showed up in the cold rain. More photos here.

Meanwhile, in Ohio at an indoor McCain rally.

And more leading indicators
Whether people are stealing McCain signs out of people's yards or people are just removing them from their yards on their own, there are noticeably less McCain signs in Chester County, Pennsylvania than there were in September. Roughly 90% of the signs I'm seeing that are actually on someone's property (versus, on public land) are for Democratic candidates. And this is an historically Republican county.
Repeating to self: No way they can steal this one and get away with it....

Hey, these people would dare to steal anything but don't ask Dogsled Barbie to ruin her makeup. I've read that her makeup artist is the most highly paid person in the McCain campaign and that's amazing because his makeup artist gets $5,500 per session and there's one almost every day.

Patron saint of the poor and downtrodden my ass.

What is most exciting is that the crowds are actually reflected in the voter turn-out so far.

And by the way...I am so ridiculously sick of Joe the Non-Liscenced Plumber That Isn't Actually Buying a Business But Now Wants To Run For Congress, yeah that Joe. Seriously.

Great news Heretik.

Grant, I've very excited by the early turnout as well and I am also VERY sick of Joe the fake plumber and all the rest of their cardboard working class dummies.
