Obama At Madison: "Where the White Woman Are At"

OK, I am paraphrasing a line from Blazing Saddles here:

.... but I suppose there's a reason why we haven't seen the overwhelming media coverage of the president's University of Wisconsin-Madison rally that we are usually treated to, especially when Obama is standing before an friendly crowd.

Granted, this photo is taken before the rally, but I seem to detect a certain...enthusiasm gap:

Not a lot of excitement here yet either (closer to the actual start time), but there is one thing here that seems to jump out at me: The crowd is predominately....wait, I can't say it:

...WHITE! (sorry, it just came out)
I mean, is there one face in this crowd - besides Obama's - that has a pigment other than pale?

I guess this sidelines the news lede - so many times recycled this year - of "The large, predominately white crowd at the latest downtown Tea Party gathering...."

Now let's watch for the inevitable Photoshop....

Go to the Wisconsin Blog called Dad29 (a good conservative Milwaukee area guy) to see his post Wednesday about a possibly photoshopped "diversity added in?" photo of Obama shaking hands with UW-Madison students.
