Am I crazy or was the Palin applause louder?

When the cameras panned the room as he entered, it sure looked like there were alot of people not applauding.

And the most boisterous applause line in the first section was for the introduction of Sarah Palin.


  • I can tell you one thing, it's getting progressively quieter. He's putting them to sleep!

  • It seems to be up and down, but I was struck by how many non-clappers there were in his introduction.

  • You can call me cynical, but I think that the applause sound level was 'managed'.

    When Bush appeared on tape, on the giant Orwellian screen, I felt that his applause and laugh lines were somewhat ineptly answered by someone in a booth nudging an applause slider.

    But I could be wrong.

  • I wondered about that, too, although mine was more that the applause during the McCain introduction seemed a lot louder than the shots of large portions of the audience not applauding.
