2008 At the Target Center
posted by September 2 at 9:29 AMon
They’re lining up outside the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis for Ron Paul’s Campaign For Liberty counter-convention.
Everyone here is a Republican who seems to hate McCain and everything he stands for—lots of the Paultards are wearing “Proud to be a Conservative Republican” buttons—but… we only ever hear about Democratic disunity. How come?
And, yeah, I only took that boy’s picture because he’s awful damn cute—so shoot me. No, wait. It’s probably not safe to type those words aloud in this crowd.
Ladies and gentlemen, Ron Paul…
UPDATE: Talked to a few people outside the Target Center. Man, these Republicans hate George W. Bush almost as much as the average pepper-sprayed protester does. When I asked one woman—whose picture I won’t post—if George W. Bush, clearly unwelcome at John McCain’s convention, would be welcome to speak at Ron Paul’s convention, she said no. What if he showed up to wave at the crowd? “He’d be shot.”
Yikes. Now we’re across the street at the Hard Rock Cafe—so glamorous—having something that very nearly approximates lunch. Then we’re off to the Log Cabin Republican fete.
