Decemberists Draw 75K... Obama Rides Indie Rock Coattails!!!

Postby No You Are » Wed May 21, 2008 8:05 am

Check this gem out.... some conservative columnist says don't look too much into Obama's huge rallies because they all came to see the Decemberists, not him.

Some of the comments (on both sites) are classic.

Wait... if Colbert made the Decemberists (by giving them the Colbert-BUMP when he had Chris Funk on his show) and the Decemberists made Obama (by drawing 75.000 people for his rally in Oregon), that means... Colbert made Obama!!

There are some people out there who are completely detached from reality. I greatly enjoy the Decemberists, but there's no way they have that kind of crowd drawing power.

wow, i had no idea we had that much power.

tho i haven't been bothering with the Ds much lately.... i haven't been on their board in a month or two and had no idea there was that many people.

but i agree, unlikely that it was 75k to see the decemberists, or 75k to see Obama....
