Yesterday, the Obama campaign repeatedly stressed that their decision to move Obama’s acceptance speech out of Bank of America stadium had nothing to do with fears that they couldn’t fill the 75,000 seat venue. They had more than enough supporters to fill the stadium, they claimed, but were very concerned about the possibility of rain or, even, lightening. Yesterday, there was a 30% chance of rain in Charlotte. Of course, there was also a 30% chance of rain when they announced the move to the outdoor Invesco Field in Denver in 2008.
Back in the Styrofoam Greek column days, the Man Who Could Control the Rising of the Seas didn’t worry about a chance of rain:
Planners of the Democratic National Convention … said presidential candidate Barack Obama will deliver his nomination-acceptance speech at Invesco Field at Mile High come rain or shine.
If the weather got bad, Dems were prepared to let the audience sit around in the rain until the clouds parted and the Moonbat Messiah could ascend to the stage.
Then again, given the way Democrats have been thumbing their nose at God, maybe they really have developed a terror of lightning strikes.
