On Friday night, my wife and I were watching the ABC Chicago affiliate for late night news and they had a video report of all these people getting on trains and busses to DC. I turned to my wife and said, “Other than the reporter, there doesn’t seem to be any honkies headed to DC.”
Probably - and I’m sure most of them didn’t pay for their own tickets, either. But Obama probably wouldn’t have had anybody at his coronation this time around, even blacks, if he hadn’t gotten them free rides.
Canceling events, slashing ticket prices by 50% at the last minute...these aren’t good signs for The Won. But it’s sure encouraging news for the rest of us!
