Did we all see the pictures of “Jim” Mitt Romney speaking to a small crowd at giant Ford Field in Detroit today? If not, here you go:
This called to mind a similar scene, on June 2, 1977 at College of the Redwoods Stadium in Eureka, CA, where Tom Hayden stood at a podium out on the football field and spoke to a gathering of about 40 people seated in the stands. Yes, the Mellowcat was there. I’m sure the event organizers were big fans, and assumed that everyone else would want to hear what he had to say. Would a lecture hall be large enough? Naaa. What about… the Stadium! Yaaa.
But hardly anyone was interested, just like with the Romney thing today.
