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!]

So much for collusion. The media conversation has now officially moved on from the obsession of the last two years to obstruction of justice.

Some of you will be familiar with a lefty, partisan Democratic organization called MoveOn, formerly MoveOn.Org.

A Reckoning Is in Store for Democrats

The crisis of the Democrats is becoming more evident each week. Those of us who have been loudly predicting for years that the Russian-collusion argument would be exposed as a defamatory farce, and that the authors of it would eventually pay for it, are bemused at the fallback position of the Trump-haters: that ...
