Convention protest update: Giant puppets, vagina costumes on the scene

posted at 6:58 pm on August 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate, via the Shark Tank, I was afraid the storm might disrupt the left’s counterprogramming too. But no, no, this is pretty much par for the course. Only one giant papier-mache Romney puppet thus far (“King of the 1%”), but give it time. Everything’s right on track.

Or is it?

The Tampa war room that Democrats opened on Saturday has fallen silent, a testament to the power of a tropical storm and the dispiriting optics of savaging an opposing party while convention delegates shield themselves from pelting rain and slashing winds.

Vice President Joe Biden has canceled all Florida events. At first, the vice president, who had been set to become the first in American history to bash the opposing party in its convention city, scrubbed just his campaigning in Tampa. For a few hours, he clung to the idea of stumping in Orlando with actress Eva Longoria, a cochairwoman of President Obama’s reelection campaign. But that event, too, has been axed.

The Democratic National Committee also canceled all anti-GOP events on Sunday and Monday. Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz ditched a Sunday press conference designed to slam Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan over their proposed changes to Medicare. She was to stand with Florida state Sen. Arthenia Joyner and Abel Rivera, described by the committee as a “local senior.” The DNC’s war room near the GOP convention site at the Tampa Bay Times Forum will also be quiet on Monday.

Storm optics are as dicey for Democrats potentially as they are for the GOP. At a moment when tone is so important, count on the man or woman dressed as giant labia to strike just the right note.

Two clips here, one of Code Pink arriving in Tampa and the other of them “preparing” 10 days ago. Enjoy the giggles now, as things are apt to turn darker later this week. These people are clowns. The real muscle will be there soon.

Why do anarchists want to shut down medical services at the RNC, are there going to be a lot of sick people? I bet there is a doctor or two in the mix of delegates. I’m kinda hoping Charlotte will be reminiscent of Chicago 1968.

And here I was thinking they were Obama’s Watermelon brigade~ because as Dan Rather said “… he couldn’t sell watermelons if you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

They would have been better off dressing up with Sandra Fluke masks. Now, she’s a real “vagina.” I’m sure they stopped traffic without the benefit of the police helping them anyway. Those crazy wh0res.

No doubt they are clowns. Even more important is the fact they have lost all credibility after they dropped all of their anti-war protesting since a prez with a “D” after his name is now in office! Before under Bush they were out in force and calling Bush and his administration every name in the book including Hitler and war criminals!

Anyone that puts any validity in anything this group does is a moron and deserves ridicule! They’re lack of protesting the current on-going wars absolutely proves they are partisan ideological hacks that don’t care about our military and only care about tearing down anyone with an “R” behind their name!

Piss on all of them!
