The funniest picture of the campaign season so far.

How in the hell does this happen at this level?
Who books a 65,000 seat stadium for a speech that's going to draw maybe a thousand people? You could have held this event  in a high-school multi-purpose room and looked fine. But instead, you say to yourself, "I'll bet at least 40 or 50,000 people are going to want to come hear Captain Boredom talk about economics, better book Ford Fuckin Field!"  What a maroon!

I thought it was a basic principle of political organizing that you always book a venue that is just slightly smaller than needed so the crowd will look bigger? Guess Mitt's people haven't heard of that one.

Want further proof that only an idiot would work for Romney? This is taking place in Detroit, ground zero for the economic disaster we're in now. Are you telling me his team couldn't find 50,000 people in Detroit desperate enough to accept twenty bucks to fill a stadium seat and eat free nachos for an hour? A photo op for what he probably considers walking around money. Instead it looks like some lame ass high school convocation mass. What a maroon.
