    What happened to the “young people are deserting Obama!” meme? MSM is so invested in their narrative that no matter how the evidence disputes their assertions, they’re sticking with it till the end.

      Here’s a great first-person account of a volunteer during the Seattle rally.

      “The day is young but we are all young, or feeling young, giddy and free. When one of the volunteers—the aforementioned Z—gets bored with her job and wanders over to hang out with me, she comments that “It’s funny his approval ratings are so low but people still come and camp out overnight.” I decline to debate the point on the approval-ratings thing, but she’s certainly right about the excitement level.”
