Here’s my new favorite John Kasich photo – no Photoshopping necessary!

The photo comes to us courtesy of the The Daily Advocate which claims “there was a massive turnout at the GOP Headquarters located on South Broadway in Greenville” to see John Kasich on the day this photo was taken.

Here’s a picture of the big grand opening of that Darke County GOP Headquarters building a few weeks earlier:

Pretty tiny building. Hard to believe you could legally have more than 50 people in that room at any given time. But I guess for a county with fewer residents than students attending The Ohio State University, that might be considered massive by some.

But when I think MASSIVE TURNOUT I’m thinking of something more along the lines of this…

 
  • Well in their defense John only had the cardboard effigy and not the ACTUAL President. So there’s that.

    We know Republicans always have trouble counting. I did force myself to watch the video of the Darke County GOP pig roast (http://www.photoshow.com/watch/wM3GA4Tn) and found it very informative. I was blinded by the amount of whites. Are there any minorities in the Ohio GOP? I guess race baiting and the anti-immigrant rants of the Republicans are not bringing in people of all races. John Boehner was there in all his orange splendor.

    I was there. Over 200 attended the Kasich event, and other supporters approached and left upon seeing they would not be able to enter the building.

    The pig roast was 500-600. There are a few minorities in Darke County, but it is almost completely white. A rural farming county.

  • I really don’t think 200 people could legally be in that building at one time. But even if that is true, and another 150 people were turned away, it’s still ONE HUNDRED TIMES fewer people than were at the last Strickland/Obama rally in Columbus.

  • According to Wikipedia “Darke” county is 98.09% white. Also:

    “0.39% Black or African American, 0.17% Native American, 0.25% Asian, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 0.34% from other races, and 0.74% from two or more races. 0.86% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race. 43.1% were of German, 20.1% American, 8.1% English, 6.8% Irish and 5.8% French ancestry according to Census 2000.”
