Barack Obama is Comin' to Town!

This just arrived hot off the bandwidth:

Change We Need Rally with Barack Obama

Mellon Arena
66 Mario Lemieux Place
Pittsburgh, PA 15219
Monday, October 27th
Doors Open: 3:00 p.m.

Looks like this is him dropping the big elbow!

The event is free and open to the public; tickets are not required but an RSVP is strongly encouraged:

Parking is very limited; please carpool or use public transportation if possible.

Think there will there be tailgating?

For security reasons do not bring bags or umbrellas and please limit personal items. No signs or banners allowed.


  1. Right on the hill - big turnout of people that like to party and have no idea on how to vote.

  2. Or could it be a large enough facility at a venue covered from the weather to accomodate supporters who are aware of the issues? By the way, maybe you should visit the Hill for real, or might it force you to realize that informed citizens are as diverse as the population of Pittsburgh?

  3. Only 23.3% of Obama supporters under the age of 25 will make it to the polls. It's McCain's to lose. A t-shirt or pressing 1 when you pick up the phone does not equal real votes. Based on the current polling I predict a McCain win.

    Get it? Young people talk a good game, but ask your random Obama supporter where their polling place is or if they are registered.

    Most of the people at the area will be lame duck. But good luck with that!

  4. Yeah that's what Hillary said once, and then the young people turned out to their state primaries. We'll see how it goes.

    For those of you familiar with the P-G op-ed by the visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, let me say that in truth I would not liken Barack Obama to Santa Claus ... more like Aslan, especially from Prince Caspian.

  5. "Only 23.3% of Obama supporters under the age of 25 will make it to the polls."

    How can you look into the future and predict a number like that?

  6. The same way you can.

  7. If a teenage, 18 year old, freshman college student, away at college, calls home to make sure his absentee ballot arrived, because he wants to make sure he votes is any indication of the young persons crowd and seeing the importance of this years election?
    I would say you are wrong.

  8. For every one of those there is are 2 others that don't care. And perhaps 2 other will show up at the polls unregistered and be confused as to why they can't vote. That is of course if they can find their polling place. It's a fact Jack.

    Old people vote, and they are not going to vote for Obama, I know I am not. I know better.

  9. Bram,

    Today, Kevin Miller (KDKA radio) also chimed in with the Obama's Coming to town & invited his listeners to change the words of the song to suit their preferences in the Presidential race.

    Due to health reasons I won't be able to attend, so who ever wants it can have my seats. Please let Sen. Obama know that I send my regards.

  10. Good job Gloria. Spread the wealth!

    The bread line is only open on Tuesdays by the way...
