I too went to the Palin rally. After spending two and a half hours in traffic to an event that our Courier stated had plenty of seats left we arrived just in the nick of time. Yes, as Eric mentioned, the crowd was very pleasant. My wife kept inviting people from the back to come forward and get a look. Of course they would have to look through two guys' shoulders and necks and wait until someone further up moved either left or right and then you could see her.
I especially like the diversity of the crowd. Young, old, businessman, country folk. Children in tow etc.
Can you believe it started with Sarah leading us with the Pledge of Alligence followed by Hank Williams Jr. singing our national anthem? Sung loudly by the crowd. I don't hear the national anthem sung at sports events unless there is a singer. Can anyone report that the Allegence and National Anthem are sung at Obama/Biden rallies? Not being mean spirited just wondering.
Attending gave me great faith that we can still win this event. Nixon spoke of the silent majority and from what I observed yesterday the silent majority will come through for us again along with the undecided.
I still have a great feeling about this election.
