Preaching to the converted

October 30, 2008

I don’t understand these big political rallies that are happening on both sides of the US Presidential race.

Last night I saw Gov Sarah Palin standing in front of a huge crowd of supporters. She shouted out what I thought was a dumb question. “Are you ready to vote us into the White House?” Or something to that effect.

Come on now, seriously, what was she expecting? A loud “Nooo. Booo. Hisss.?”

Its a rally of supporters for heavens sake. Of course they will roar “Yes!!” She expected a Yes. The crowd had long made up their minds to say Yes. Its like asking a lover, “You like?” Gah. The brainlessness of it all.

Preaching to the choir. I dunno who gets more out of it – the voters or the candidates. I’m talking about Barrack here too.

The 7-10% undecideds. Now that’s who they should be spending time with.

5 days till the fat lady sings. Can’t wait.

    I think they just want to make sure all the existing supporters won’t run away and by shouting or screaming “YES”, they might just boost their ‘beliefs’ that they are indeed voting for the right people. 😀

    I guess so. You get the same silliness in a rock concert when the lead singer screams, “Are you ready for some music?” We should all consipre to scream, “NO!!” LOL. 😀

    The final lap. The 7 – 10% may just pick up the roar of the crowds’ resounding ‘yes’ and follow suit. No point wasting breath seeking them out now. Let herd mentality work on it.

    Yeah. I think they call it the bandwagon effect or something. In the last days of a campaign, undecideds tend to go with the winning party. So maybe these rallies are more for the benefit of the press than the people present.
