Big Mac attack plays to tiny crowd

I suppose it's only good politics for the McCain campaign to claim they have any kind of meaningful ground game going and for the candidate himself to express his confidence. At a rally in Tampa, McCain told the crowd, "The pundits may not know it and the Democrats may not know it, but the Mac is back! We're going to win this election."

Well Mac may be back, but where are the people?
About 30 minutes before John McCain is scheduled to lead a rally outside Raymond James Stadium, looks like there's 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 2004 election.
McCain's surrogates are playing the "Silent Majority" card.
"We are the quiet majority that goes out and gets things done. ... I smell victory,'' said state Rep. Kevin Ambler.
I smell something too, but it's not victory. Judging from the numbers of registered party voters alone, that's a hard claim to sell outside of the group of every shrinking, true believers.

I smell popcorn. The Mrs. is picking up some Jiffy Pop right now to enjoy after GOTV efforts tomorrow evening.

Jiffy Pop was always my fav but I'm too superstitious to prepare for victory. I'll be sharing yours vicariously tomorrow though.
