After a failed attempt to fill Bank of America Stadium that included offers to bus in supporters from three states, the Democratic Party abandoned the site for a “more intimate” 20,000 seat venue, citing a threat of rain and lightning for the President’s address. There was only a 30% chance of rain for the evening, and even less of a chance of a storm coming through that late in the evening.
This is the forecast for Charlotte, NC, at 10:00 PM, when Barack Obama is scheduled to accept the nomination for President of the United States of the Godless Democratic Party.
If anyone finds evidence of moisture near Bank of America at 10:00 PM, send me a photo.
Note: Tears from Occupy protestors being gassed by the police, or a dolled-up celebrity overwhelming from breaking a fingernail, does not count.
