Due to overwhelming demand, Sarah Palin’s rally in Springfield, Missouri today had to be relocated to a larger venue. The event was moved from the Missouri State University’s McDonald Arena to a Bass Pro Shops parking lot. The original event was ticketed for a crowd of 4,000 people.

By comparison, McCain held a town hall meeting here last June that drew 350 people, (Sorry John) but that was last June. The almighty “One” himself held a rally in neighboring Glendale High Scholl last July that drew a whopping 2,000 people.

In short, Sarah Palin is a rock star and she is kicking everyone’s arses.
