do locals go to rallies? good question.
things to check:
1. signs. Are the words misspelled? Is there internal logic to the message contained on sign?
2. clothing. poly or cloth? bright colors (lily p. wearer's of pink and green–cave dweller's–will not be, well, "rallying."
3. Body size in general. Most local stores do not carry clothing for women over size 10, twelve is pushing it.
4. Buses. Generally, these people are bused in from some unpleasant place. Tens and tens of buses will be parked 'round the corner to take them home when the work in done. They leave a great deal of trash. Super sized coke and fast food wrappers.
Locals do turn out for The Million Man March, President Obama, Fourth of July, and Colbert. Why not?
