Isn’t the best part of the DNC the shots of the crowd celebrating between speeches? The offbeat clapping, goofy dancing and sloppy high fives. The silly hats, american flag suits, new years eve-esque glasses. The strange mix of race, age, gender, religion and sexual preference. All sorts of people who would’d normally have nothing to do with one another, but due to this special event, they’re bumping rumps and celebrating like “the crazy uncle” at your friend’s wedding.
The more I studied the crowd of the DNC, the more I wanted to relate it to the crowd of another event. Where else could you find such a diverse set of people acting so foolishly? I racked my brain, but simply couldn’t come up with any worthy comparisons. Then, as I flipped on the TV this morning, it hit me. The audience that most closely resembles the crowd of a large political event is the audience of The Price Is Right.
