Gotta love the guy in the sweatshirt hiding his face. "What if my mom and dad find out a Republican?"
Gotta love the tall white socks while wearing shorts!
Seattle: where even Republicans wear sandals and socks.
Tell that guy to put his sweatshirt back on...I can see the rolls of fat on his gut!! NASTY!!!
not to mention the guy in a business suit and baseball cap. Who does he think he is, Speilberg?
The Masons were there, too. But they had balloons.
There was a pro-life booth as well, staffed by two college-age women. Sad, sad, sad.
@4 "rolls of fat"???
Clean yer glasses....
@4 Seriously, the "rolls of fat" comment was way off base.
For a second I felt a little pissed that someone could be so judgmental, but then I remembered the fact that one day you'll get old and fat yourself... just one of life's sweet little ironies.
Given Christine Gregoire's emerging tribal Casino kickbacks and related racketeering scandals, Rossi has a good chance this year.
Given that all the GOP can do about Gregoire is to lie about her, I'd say Rossi has little to no chance this year.
Say what? Rossi is comfortably in first place:
1......Valentino.ROSSI...ITA......Fiat Yamaha Team......162
2......Dani PEDROSA......SPA......Repsol Honda Team.....151
3......Casey STONER......AUS......Ducati Marlboro Team..117
Granted, the season is only just begun but right now the championship is Rossi's to lose.
What cracks me up about the latest attempt-to-manufacture controversy by the WA GOP regarding Gregoire and the Casinos is that these are the same people who expect me to not care about Haliburton, Blackwater, No bid contracts, and the myriad other fiascos in Iraq.
Gregoire in a landslide.
Third loneliest place this weekend: A Mc Cain rally on the South Side of Chicago!
(Didn't really happen, but I can just imagine the tumble weeds and the four Republicans in attendance.)
I always like to walk up to them and say: "Why haven't you enlisted, coward?"
It works really well.
I was at Gay Pride in Fort Lauderdale this weekend--yes, I know, it's totally redundant. Anyway. There was a group of six sad, very sad Log Cabin Republicans walking down the street, and as they passed along the route it got so incredibly quiet. What do you say to such people? Nobody could even meet their gazes, we were all so embarrassed for them.
Until at last, this great big drunk lesbian marched right up to the group of them, and said in her big drunk lesbian voice:
"Shouldn't you fuckers be walking backwards?"
We hung out by the repug booth for a long time, but it was mostly to talk to the nice folks selling salvia plants.
@15: Be carefull, you might just be talking to a relative of someome how just got killed in Iraq and get punched in the face.
Only cowards punch people in the face.
In Will's mind, where civilian control of the military doesn't exist, anyone who disagrees with him is a coward.
@18 - I'll take that risk, pumpkin.
Didn't think so.
For the record, it's not the "Solstice Fair". The Fremont Fair is put on by Solid Ground, formerly the Fremont Public Association, and supports their anti-poverty programs; the parade is run by the Fremont Arts Council. The Fair's been around a lot longer than the parade has.
What the Fair really needs is a Naked Republican component.
Sandal lady and suit guy look like they might be over 42 y/o, which, last I heard, is the age limit for englisting for the first time into active duty with the U.S. Army.
Sweatshirt guy is hiding his face because he's AWOL? Or, he's come out to his parents, but not told them about the GOP thing yet.
Bulletin from the outside world: nobody really cares about socks of that height. Or whether you have the ones that don't peek out of your sneakers. Or whether Obama tucks his polo shirt in. Yawn.
Bulletin from the American South for Cato the Younger Younger:
THAT AIN'T FAT! Hoo-ee, don't you have Wal-Marts there?
Naked republicans? Oh dear gawd!!
The sight of a naked Ann Coulter would turn so many of us hetero types gay....
When I walked by at around 1 p.m., the fellow manning the booth was wearing a tie-tied T-shirt. I couldn't figure out if the tie-dye was part of his normal wardrobe or if he was just wearing it to fit in with the hippies.
There's truly nothing more pathetic than a middle aged man - especially a middle-aged white man - in a suit and baseball cap. His aging Huey Lewis fantasy just makes me want to weep for him.
I glared at the girl working the pro-life booth -- I felt a little guilty when she looked so excited for a second that someone had actually made eye contact with her. The scientology booth, sadly, was hopping when I passed it. Three people in there, two getting tested or whatnot and the other way too interested in listening to their lies.
People, I'm the "coward" "hiding" my face from the camera. Except that I'm not hiding my face! Whoever took this picture took it at the precise moment I was removing my sweatshirt since it was warming up. I am a proud Republican (And yes, I'm the same Mark Griswold that ran for 43rd district Representative in 2004 and the same Mark Griswold who is campaign consultant for current 43rd district Representative candidate. And for those of you that think anyone that supports the war needs to serve that's a pretty stupid comment but doesn't apply to me either way because I served in the United States Navy.
As for the GOP booth being the lonliest place around this weekend, sorry to burst your limited view of the United States and even Fremont but we signed up 43 new volunteers for the cause and gave out upwards of 100 McCain and Rossi yard signs. Several 100 more people walked by and gave us encouraging and positive comments. There's more of us than you think. We just have better things to do than go down to Westlake Center and protest. Those better things are called jobs which actually contribute to the economy and pay for most of the social programs you so dearly love.
And fun fact of the day: Fremont was named after John C Fremont, first Republican presidential candidate. The neighborhood is also largely owned by Republican Suzy Burke who is kind enough to let all you left wingers use her parking lots to protest.
Mark, Mark, Mark... mighty broad brush you're painting with, no? You know, I thought that the protest was a cornerstone of Americana, what with that Boston Tea Party and all. And yet, somehow, the founding fathers managed to do other productive things too. Think about it.
P.S> Republican doesn't mean the same thing it meant back in the day. When your party isn't completely full of out of touch dipshits like yourself, get back to me.
