No big deal, but I was struck by this February 24 photo of Mitt Romney addressing a gathering of his supporters at Detroit’s Ford Field in his home state of Michigan for what was billed as a major economic address and the announcement of new economic initiatives. (Photo by Carlos Ororio/AP Photo)
What is striking is what you don’t see: people in the bleachers. The crowd numbered about 1,200 as reported by ABC News. To put that in perspective:
That’s right. More people1 visited my blog that day than came to hear Romney. Make of it what you will.
Other news of Romney event:
1 Numbers from Google Analytics. Blog visitor counts do not include RSS feed subscribers. Counts slightly higher in Hawaii and Alaska. Good only at participating locations. Void where prohibited by law. Offer not available in red states. May cause blurred vision. Seek medical attention for an erection lasting more than 4 hours. Reading the fine print can cause you to go blind.
Out of fairness, I should add that Romney charged the folks that came, and I didn’t.
