It's Deja Vu All Over Again

Hmm, haven't seen this in a while . .
Pre-emptive ejection: Audience members removed at McCain rally in Cedar Falls
By Dylan Boyle — Daily Staff Writer | Tuesday, October 28, 2008 2:57 PM CDT

Audience members escorted out of Sen. John McCain’s, R-Ariz., campaign event in Cedar Falls questioned why they were asked to leave Sunday’s rally even though they were not protesting. . .

“When I started talking to them, it kind of became clear that they were kind of just telling people to leave that they thought maybe would be disruptive, but based on what? Based on how they looked,” Elborno said. “It was pretty much all young people, the college demographic.”

But John McCain's not George Bush. If you're a Republican, just keep reciting this and clicking your heels together, and your wishes will come true!

Update: Chez has picked it up and a student of mine has pointed out that McCain at this or another rally the same day had a Palin impersonator in the crowd. I'm not sure if it was Cedar Falls or Rapids, both, or which happened first, but I almost suspect that the campaign decided to toss students matching the VP's general 'look' after that clip from MSNBC.

I saw the impersonator on Maddow's show. Maddow said it was funny that McCain's being mocked at his own rally. Pretty nice stunt, but if the mob gets ahold of them, the impersonator's in a world o' hurt.
