Media Mania

Just got off the phone with Mom and Mark, who informed me that the Media courthouse is absolutely mobbed with enthusiastic McCain-Palin supporters. By Mark's estimate, there are thousands in attendance, overflowing from the main stage area and extending several blocks beyond State Street. I am hoping to watch via a local news outlet online and post a video later. From what I could hear in the background, people are incredibly pumped up and ready to deliver the state for Republicans in November. My brother noted that the last time he witnessed such a palpable electricity in the Media crowd was when Reagan visited during the 1984 campaign. Not even Dubya elicited the same level of passion in 2004. Let's hope this is a good omen and that PA swings back to red this year!
