Democrat Momentum Unstoppable!

This headline in The Reno Gazette-Journal caught my eye:

Fluke Takes Center Stage In Reno

Which sounds kind of a big deal: I mean, the cliché “center stage” implies you’re the star, the center of attention, the one everyone’s there to see. And sure enough, in the picture underneath, standing in front of an Obama-Biden banner, there she was:

Sandra Fluke, a social justice advocate and campaign surrogate for Democratic President Barack Obama, speaks in Reno on Saturday.

And then I read the first sentence:

Sandra Fluke, the woman at the center of a media firestorm earlier this year after Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut,” spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno.

Ten people? Does that include the reporter? How small a crowd do you have to draw not to get covered by The Reno Gazette-Journal?

Here’s the second sentence:

The speech was part of a daylong effort by Democrats to get Northern Nevadans to the polls on the first day of early voting.

Maybe they should have booked Big Bird.

PS I’ll be in Concord, NH on Friday with the Granite State’s next governor, Ovide Lamontagne. If The Reno Gazette-Journal wants to send someone, I’m confident we can draw at least twelve.

[UPDATE: Photo of what the energized Democrat calls the “intimate gathering” – more proof that David Axelrod’s Spinal Tap strategy is working!]

Trump’s Helsinki Discord

Donald Trump is not, and never will be, the Moscow correspondent for The Nation magazine, and he shouldn’t sound like it. The left-wing publication is prone to extend sympathetic understanding to adversaries of the United States and find some reason, any reason, to blame ourselves for their external ... Read More
