• Seen at the DNC, Monday, Aug. 25
Between the temple of Iranian bliss and the Shaking of the Mint where Michelle Malkin was mobbed, here are some other scenes I ran into today.
A young girl with Tear It Down.org, a mock Guantanamo cell in Cuernavaca Park. Amnesty International was involved with this display as well. Oddly there were no mock gallows or chopping blocks to call for justice for women or gays or other victims of Sharia justice.
The new Obama/Biden T-shirt. It just says “CLEAN” — I wonder if the back of the shirt says “Bright and articulate?”
Drama queens arrived from all over the country. Yippie era superhero Pieman showed up, with food dribbled down his tank top. Obama’s pal William Ayers, who gained notoriety in the same era by throwing bombs rather than pies, has not yet been seen in the streets of Denver so far this week.
Denver’s finest ready for action.
Aurora’s finest are fully equipped to prevent civil unrest.
The man with the hammer and sickle™ cap knows which party he can most reasonably hope to appeal to. His companion has a point: only a tiny fraction of the large numbers of demonstrators who threatened to show up really appeared. The rhetoric and the threats of various groups who promised to disrupt the convention made it necessary for various levels of government to spend a fortune to ensure safety for everyone.
Not everyone who came to Denver for the convention was crazy or angry. These two sisters who came up from Georgia to sell souvenirs were very sweet.
