Having helped out in event planning at my old job and planning weekend services at church, I’ve grown an appreciation for productions that run smoothly. The only time I’ve seen something go wrong at an Obama rally was when the sound guys couldn’t get the mic on right away. Obama quipped “I told you folks were having a hard time paying their electric bill.”
Meanwhile, at the McCain camp, I suppose people are so busy updating their resumes that no one had time to brief McCain that 3rd man on the ticket Joe the Plumber was a no show. I kind of feel bad for McCain here, you can plainly see the moment of realization on his face that no one told him Joe wasn’t there. And then he quickly moves to the rousing “You’re all Joe the Plumber”.
Frankly, I’m going to be glad when Joe’s out of the limelight. He’s sure milking his 15 minutes though. A fund was created to pay off his back taxes, he’s hired a PR firm, he’s gotten offers for a country music album and he’s also thought about running for office.
