Must Be the Loyalty Oaths

From Holden:

Via skippy we learn that Kerry is attracting crowds that are six to seven times larger than those attracted by your preznit:

[Grand Rapids, Michigan] city spokeswoman Annette Guilfoyle said police estimated that 20,000 to 25,000 people attended the Kerry event, which would make it one of Grand Rapids’ largest political rallies in recent memory. Hundreds waved blue and white “help is on the way” signs.

About 4,000 people turned out to see Bush, who spoke Friday only a few blocks away in a filled-to-capacity auditorium at the downtown community college.
