We reported the other day on a major George Allen #FAIL, in which Allen’s official campaign HQ opening in Richmond had far, far fewer people than Tim Kaine had at his official campaign HQ opening in Richmond 5 months earlier. Now, we’ve got another one.
In this case, the top photo (taken by our own Alan “Aznew” Zimmerman) was at Gov. Kaine’s statewide tour rally in C-ville. News reports said that around 400 people were in attendance for Tim Kaine. Compare and contrast to the bottom photo, from the Allen campaign’s “send a message’ statewide tour rally this afternoon in Harrisonburg, around 60 miles from C-ville. From the looks of it, there were just a handful of folks at the Allen “rally,” probably could fit ’em all in a big gas-guzzling SUV, the kind big oil shill George Allen probably loves to tool around in.
Bottom line: both rallies were held on Thursday afternoons, in the same general region of Virginia, yet the turnout and enthusiasm for Tim Kaine were orders of magnitude greater than for George Allen. Just guessing here, but I’m kind of thinking that this stark contrast might, just might have had something to do with the fact that Kaine’s actually got a positive message and vision, while Allen’s all negative all the time? Just sayin’. 🙂
