First-Hand Report from Clinton Rally!
Exciting times for the Arkansas Project! Arkansas Project Girlfriend (APG) volunteered to serve as the exclusive blog correspondent to the Hillary Clinton rally for Barack Obama at the State Capitol in Little Rock this afternoon. (I would have gone, but this television isn’t going to watch itself, people.)
APG reports there were maybe 1,000 people there, and they had a gospel choir. But she didn’t realize that every damn Democratic politician in Arkansas would be speaking, and she got bored and left early, right about the time Gov. Mike Beebe, that memorable and incandescent public speaker, started getting going….
So really, all that stuff about “first-hand report” and “exclusive” was pretty much a lie, because APG is totally unreliable and didn’t even stick around for the main event, i.e., Hillary’s speech.
She did say that “Cheers” actor Ted Danson and actor wife Mary Steenburgen were on hand and offered some remarks, and she might be able to provide a photo later, so you’ve got that to look forward to. Wow, political speeches from C-list celebrities, great, and a crappy cell phone-camera shot to boot. Look, I’m just as disappointed as you are, OK? This is the last time APG is to be entrusted with any sensitive blog assignments.
Oh, and she got a speeding ticket on the way over there, so now I’ve gotta hear about THAT all night, too. Great. Jesus, what a day.
Update: Here’s Andrew Demillo’s AP report on the rally. Frankly, it kind of reads like he didn’t actually go to the rally but just had someone call in the highlights on the phone. I mean, he doesn’t even mention the wiener dog.

You keep talking about APG like that you might not get any APG special reporting later tonight…
That is without a doubt the best second hand report of a first hand account of a Hillary rally that I have ever read on a blog!
The wiener dog was by far the most interesting part of the rally.

Damn dave, you have a winner.
What I hear from other demo-socialist, surrogate friends of mine…this was a snooze-fest. The wiener dog was the real star.
Gov. Beebe, Steele, et. al., Steenbergen and Greenjeans, and don’t forget Hillary was there. I would have guessed about 1,000 to 1,200 were there including those yelling (talking) to the gathering. But, I find it amazing that the other media outlets are calling it 3,000 to 6,000 people in attendance.
This reminds me of when B. Hussein Obama spoke somewhere, and it was said that McCain/Palin people are at their jobs instead of listening to a “bad wind” blowing (paraphrasing). At least the awesome Arkansas weather was good for a snooze-fest…
APG ran into a campaign jockey friend at the event, and he estimated it at around 1,000 when she was there. She pulled out before the main event, so I suppose it’s perfectly conceivable that it might have swelled to 2K or even 3K, but 6K sounds pretty dubious to me.
The more interesting question might be, how much did they pull down at the fundraiser?
Went, left early, complained the whole time…..
That sounds like a certain political volunteer, on a certain Governors campaign I know.
Speaking of Democrat functions. Here is one that definitely needs some “DK Commentary”: http://www.arktimes.com/blogs/arkansasblog/2008/10/hee_hee.aspx
Does APG read this blog? You might want to come visit for a few weeks if she does. 1,500 miles MIGHT be a safe enough distance.
