This is strength?

Tonight, conservative talk show hosts Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly will hold another edition of their road show (The Bold and Fresh Tour) in Nationwide Arena in Columbus. The Ohio Project, the group petitioning for an Ohio constitutional amendment to nullify mandatory health care, plans to have petition circulators present. Obviously, this is a good move for them, since most people interested in Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly are likely to be sympathetic to that cause.

However, ProgressOhio doesn't want The Ohio Project to go unanswered, so they are countering with a literature distribution of their own. However, they have a small problem. Only one person has signed up online to participate (screen shot edited for space). Do you think maybe health care isn't such a popular issue, after all, hmmmm?

June 21 update: I spoke with a friend who did attend The Bold and Fresh Tour. He saw several petition circulators, but not one person distributing literature against the petition. Thus backing up my point. The "progressive" movement in Ohio is a paper tiger.
