Turnout for Bill Clinton’s Detroit Rally: It Depends on What Your Definition of ‘Anemic’ Is

It’s certainly not a good sign, at least for 20-point-down governor wannabe Virg Bernero here in Michigan, when you have a rally in a high school gym featuring a former president in a city that allegedly loves him — a week before a major election — and the turnout is horrendous:

While the crowd hoisted signs that stated “Virg Surge,” the turnout at the rally was anemic. More than 500 people came to the rally, but the gym at Renaissance High School was only about one-third full, even though Clinton used to command full houses wherever he went, especially in Detroit.

Politician after politician exhorted the crowd to not let the polls keep them from voting on Nov. 2.

Now remember, we’re talking about a city that can sell out Detroit Lions games, so this is a bad turnout.

The Dems should have brought the motivational excellence of Jamie Foxx into town, because clearly too many people are exhausted from defending Obama:

After the Bernero rally, Clinton spoke at a rally for super-liberal Detroit dinosaur John Dingell and talked about things that make him gag (feel free to write your own joke). I don’t know about you, but somebody who’s been in Congress for 55 years is what makes me gag.
