‘Predominantly white crowd’

The DNC just sent out this pic of Obama in Madison yesterday, with the subject line, “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.” They’re right, but not for the reason they think:

This was taken right before he stomped back to the podium and scolded them for not clapping loudly enough. But the point is: predominantly white crowds are bad, except when they’re not.

    Most of the other commenters noticed the same thing I did. Professor Althouse blogged that signs and posters were not allowed past security checkpoints, although what that has to do with security, I don’t fathom.

    Basically, this was a tame crowd, and probably larger than expected since most of the people couldn’t get into that square.

    I’m confused…

    How did Obama get the tea partiers to hold those union printed signs?

    Not a hand-made sign in view. It looks like a campaign rally for him, and not much beyond astro-turf-type enthusiasm.

    One thing that caught my attention is the O in vote. He’s not on the ballot, yet it’s all still about him.

      it has always been about him.

    “OMG! And they’re auctioning off that black guy on the stage!”

    It DOES look like a Klan rally.

    You KNOW what REALLY bugs the cah-rap out of me? That Obama frickin’ cult circle STILL in the middle of EVERYTHING. I mean, BOOOOSH didn’t have a white on black background capital “W” schmack in the middle of his signs once the campaign was (dare I say it…?) “O.V.E.R.”, did he?

    Give it a rest, Elvis! Trust me. The few bumper stickers still haunting the highways are, “O”, enough.
