Obama's Health Care Rally Draws 200 Supporters

...and apparently even more protestors. But first:

Obama Comes to Ohio (Again), Nobody Shows Up

President Barack Obama, joined by Ohio governor Ted Strickland, came to Ohio today to continue his permanent campaign on health-care legislation. His campaign events during the 2008 presidential race attracted crowds of thousands of Ohioans; this time, President Obama managed a crowd of about 200 people.

What a loser. Here's what the AP reports on the protestors (in the 25th paragraph of a 25 paragraph story)

Protesters arrived hours early, lining several blocks leading to the senior center. They stood in a light drizzle, waved to passing vehicles and held signs including "Don't stick me with your Obamacare," "Start over," and one decorated with 12 skull and crossbones and the message, "Obama care, it's to die for."

Sounds like more than 200 to me. Sounds like a lot less "AstroTurf" than what was inside...

Smells like...victory. For the opposition. For today...
