McCain defiant in Defiance OH - but he's no prizewinner

Reported by Chrish - October 30, 2008 -

FOX showed some footage of John McCain speaking from Defiance, Ohio, this morning and noted his comeback spirit - still cheerleading until the end, good for them. FOX is nothing if not loyal. But they failed to mention that 2/3 of the crowd he spoke to were school kids bussed in from local schools.

Huffington Post reports that

"A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses."

They also report (see the video at Huffington Post) that John McCain introduced Joe (wink,wink) the Plumber (wink,wink) to sounds of silence - Joe wasn't there. Someone get that man some Gingko.
