In other news, Obama was in the ‘Nati yesterday, along with about 15,000 people in Ault Park. I didn’t go because I had to work, but at 11:00 (his speech was at 3), people were already trekking up from MLS and HPS. I thought, naively, that the local news last night might have had some coverage, but they were too busy with Palin in Wilmington (Any idea what she was doing there? Does anybody really believe the GOP is going to fix the DHL mess? Shouldn’t they have run her out with pitchforks?), and interviewing people there like the guy who said “She should be president!” and woman who dressed up her little girls like Caribou Barbie (thanks, Veace’s mom) and made them imitate her–as flattery. For the Obama rally? Not a single person interviewed, no estimate of the number of people there; only a brief clip (and a rather stilted one) of his speech. I really should know better than to expect anything–ANYTHING–informative from the local news, but really. They should be utterly ashamed. 15,000 citizens were gathered in a public park to support a presidential candidate. Cover the fucking story.
