Wild Democracy Ride Quoted

Thanks to Gary, not only for promoting us, but also for finding this mention in his local Cincinnati Enquirer, which he calls a "right wing rag of a paper":

• Curb your enthusiasm: Yes, that "spontaneous" wild applause on the convention floor is carefully crafted for TV. Blogger D.L. Rock on Wild Democracy Ride ( quotes a delegate: "We are told a lot. We are given signs and told exactly when to raise them and stand." When Edwards gave his speech Wednesday, she added, they were told they might have to applaud less so he could end in prime time, but Edwards finished five minutes early, leaving time for an ovation brimming with rational exuberance.
