The McCain campaign isn’t totally dormant in Chicago. I found this list (keyed to my zip code) of upcoming events – though I also found them wanting. For example, this Friday night you can get together with fellow McCainiacs and watch . . . the first debate!
Three long hours, hosted by John Hampilos, who I’m sure is a fine human being. But geez!
Finally, Obama may have booked Grant Park, but the local McCain campaign will be at the Hilton Chicago on Election Night. Not necessarily a bad option: It’s free, there probably won’t be a long line at the bar, and Tony Peraica is expected, so you never know.
