Kay Bailey Hutchison: All By Herself

Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison embarrassed herself again yesterday in Temple, Texas, with yet another incredibly poor turnout at a grassroots event– an event publicized via media and social media.

The event drew a a few reporters, a few staffers, and a handful of supporters. See for yourself:

As you may recall, Hutchison’s campaign had egg on its face a couple weeks ago, when her announcement tour kickoff was also sparsely attended:

You mean being the #1 earmarker in Texas history, voting in favor of TARP and auto bailouts, consistently voting to expand government health care, siding with Obama on things like Lilly Ledbetter, missing a bunch of stimulus amendment roll call votes, and being pro-choice isn’t catching on among Republican grassroots?
