The Republican presidential nominee from Arizona landed at the Columbia Regional Airport around 12:30 p.m. As McCain disembarked from the plane, a man yelled, "Go get 'em, John."...
A crowd of about 15 people assembled outside the airport's fence to see him descend from the plane.
Okay, here's a rule of crowd estimation. It is okay to say a crowd was thousands, or hundreds, but it can never be "about 15", if there are "about" 15, you've got time to get the number exactly right.
Here's another thought -- if you're the Republican presidential nominee and you can't even pull in more people than Kathy Shaidle and free donuts, you're in a world of hurt. I'm just sayin'.
c'mon cc... free doughnuts! how could mccain be expected to compete with that, jeez.
Maybe Sarah Palin was giving a racist speech in the neighbouring small town and that's where all his supporters were.
"'Go get 'em, John.'"
Yeah, John...fetch...goo' boy.
And 15 people are only a crowd if they're all in a phone booth. Yeesh!
Maybe there were some pregnant women there. If it's a republican crowd, do you count the embryos or not? If you do, is it proper to ask whether a woman's carrying twins?
"About 15" is probably just the reporter being safe.
