Colorado Hispanic Republicans Rally For Glorious Victory!

UPDATE: In response to questions about the photo below that have surfaced on a nationally prominent blog, we were forwarded another photo from yesterday’s Colorado Hispanic Republicans rally. Our source doesn’t want to misrepresent the size of yesterday’s crowd, and in all fairness, this second photo does show more people in attendance than the first.

As in, about three. ¡No más! See the “full crowd” after the jump.

The press advisory went out last week with great fanfare:

Unfortunately, something happened between that bold announcement and the actual Colorado Hispanic Republicans rally held yesterday at the state capitol.

Something obviously happened, because there appear to be more Colorado Hispanic Republicans listed on the press advisory than actually in attendance at yesterday’s rally.

It could honestly be a good thing to to see that lengthy advisory–otherwise you might get the idea that the people in the photo are all the Colorado Hispanic Republicans who, you know, exist.

Pro organizing tip: if a rally is about to send the opposite of the message you want, cancel it.

    The point isn’t that everyone was going to show up nor that  those listed in the announcement  were going  to be there.

    The point  is that those listed in the announcement were willing to believe there were Hispanic Republicans in Denver metro that could show up.

    See, faith and belief are more important than actually showing up. And that’s the point. Oh, and that the pastor at St Thomas Moore was willing to meet with the household and yard staff of his congregation outside the church is kinda big, ’cause he sure isn’t going to see them at STM.

    Pols just photoshopped them out because they are biased

  3. Jones Smith says:

    Statistically speaking, 75% of those folks are most likely wandering tourists who stopped by to see what all the quiet was about.

    I guess many “Hispanic Republicans” will want to deport me because I decided to title the subject of this reply in Spanish!
