Not a good sign....

Quote
Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama.

Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.

Campaign volunteer Ken Johnson asked who in the crowd had voted early before introducing Wonder.

Nearly every hand went up.

Wonder took the stage at about 10:30 a.m.

"I do a song. You go vote. You come back. We do some more music," he said before opening with "Sir Duke."

No one left to vote after the first -- or any -- song.

A shuttle meant to take voters to the nearby Cuyahoga County Board of Elections left empty after Wonder's final song, "Superstition."

It's pretty bad when the link to your article already exposes your BS without having to click it.  They didn't advertise for it.

Why is that my fault?  Just an example of this well oiled GOTV machine, right?

My brother smoked a joint with Stevie Wonder once, about 25 years ago.  He said that it was wrapped in a paper that looked like the American Flag.

An event held last winter is a little bit less significant than one held mere days before the election. Come on.

We get it. The polls should be ignored because they are part of a massive liberal conspiracy. The 'truth' is in the intangibles. The gut feelings of various conservative pundits, the size of crowds at ancillary events, etc.

But do you have to post every link you find on Drudge? Would you like one 'Why all you are stupid and Romney is really going to win and I can prove it!' thread?

Was advertised in the paper the day the before by the same paper saying supporters only notified an hour before, lol.  Google is not your friend, looks like it was advertised plenty, that was a quick search, lol.
