Mahlon Mitchell, running for lt gov, speaking now. Starts a "show me what democracy looks like" chant, #OWS- styleOh, here's John McCormack of The Weekly Standard. Sample:
Crowd for Clinton-Barrett rally in Milwaukee 10 minutes before scheduled start: 400 people? twitter.com/McCormackJohn/…— John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 1, 2012
"This guy is 65 years old and he's getting hit on by porn stars. This guy is a god"--Overheard at Clinton-Barrett rally.— John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 1, 2012
ADDED: Rosie Gray has an awful lot of tweets about this one guy:
Volunteers just asked the guy with the Scott walker sign to "move to the left of the press." he refused— Rosie Gray (@RosieGray) June 1, 2012
AND: Sorry to repeat the phrase "this... guy." In the first update, the "this guy" who's 65 and "hit on by porn stars" is Bill Clinton. In the second update, "this guy" is just some guy who showed up with a Scott Walker sign and troubling the photo op compositions. You can't exactly just point the camera elsewhere if the crowd is tiny and you're trying to capture that teeming look.
ALSO: Where's the live-stream? Barrett's own Twitter feed, an hour ago, said "Huge crowd ready to rally as shown by this photo submitted by a supporter," and within minutes, there were 2 responses, asking for directions to a live stream. Nearly and hour later, and with Clinton close to going on, there's no answer. I found an indication of a live feed at WAOW.com, but clicking on the link doesn't work for me. What's irritating is: I keep clicking and getting the same commercial and then it goes dead. It's a public service ad featuring a low-flow showerhead. Low-flow. I want streaming, and I'm getting no-flow.
UPDATE: The Walker supporter is arrested.
