Sandra Fluke, her 15 minutes of fame having elapsed, talked to ten people in Reno yesterday as part of the Obama campaign. Ten people? In my small town of Dwight, Illinois I could have over a hundred people assemble to hear a speaker with three hours advance notice. Give me a day’s advance notice and I could have over five hundred.
This shows either lousy advance work on behalf of the Obama campaign, or, as I have always thought, the Fluke crusade to have someone else pay for contraceptives is of interest only to liberal elites and to virtually no one else. Remember, she was a featured speaker at the Democrat Convention, has received endless national publicity, and she can only manage to draw fewer people than a car backfiring.
