Thousands Flock to See Palin in the Missouri Sticks– Biden Draws 500 to St. Louis High School Gym
Yesterday, Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber ROCKED Bowling Green!
It’s no wonder this was not on the nightly news– This crowd was ROARING!
Today, America’s most popular Governor Sarah Palin spoke to an overflow crowd of thousands in Cape Girardeau today.
The News Leader reported
Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin received a rousing welcome Thursday in southeast Missouri, telling an overflow crowd that John McCain will fix the economy, lead America to victory in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and move toward energy independence.
The Alaska governor spoke to several thousand people at the Show Me Center on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. The arena holds a little more than 7,000 people and was full. In fact, hundreds more watched on closed circuit TV in an adjoining recreation center. One organizer said 13,000 tickets were given away.
Palin was interrupted at times by chants of “Sarah, Sarah” and “USA! USA!” during her 25-minute speech. She criticized Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama several times, but did not make reference to Obama’s past associations with ’60s-era radical Bill Ayers or Palestinian-American professor Rashid Khalidi, who has been critical of Israel.
Meanwhile, Senator Joe Biden spoke to a crowd of 500 today in Arnold, Missouri.
He didn’t even come close to packing the high school gym.
Biden spoke to more than 500 people at Fox High School in Arnold, a suburb of St. Louis, and part of Jefferson County, where Democratic Sen. Hillary Clinton got significantly more support in the primary than Obama.
But several audience members Thursday were enthusiastic supporters of the Obama ticket. They don’t like the direction the country is headed and like Obama’s ideas on the economy and health care.
But, the media is reporting that Palin is a drag on her ticket.
