Denny0103 - your post is sooo on-the-mark. Once I slowed down laughing and caught my breath, I wanted to let you know your post is a "100!" Have you seen clinton's endorsement commercial on obutthead? I found myself thinking, "yeah...here we have a rapist and pervert endorsing another criminal!" Teri in PA
Day one of the Republican convention drew excitement from the group that was there to participate, but the rain and a general lack of interest and organization meant that the media-driven frenzy around counter-protesters fizzled into nothing.

The police were ready, however, and a fairly large contingent of Tampa's finest took to the streets, clearly prepared for a worst-case scenario.

A popular protest tactic is the act of lying down in the middle of the street. These protesters used it to, erm, great effect, I suppose. Security forces were unfazed.
