Classy

I realize these people have the right to protest, feel passionately about their issue, etc. Having said that, getting carted off like a sack of potatoes (like this) is embarrassing.

Perhaps it is now also redundant to note that if these doorknobs (or to borrow Hicks's parlance, "trustifarians") were really that concerned about human rights, and really believed the US has a moral duty to be the Red Cross of the world, then they would have supported the Iraq war. Pure and simple.

UPDATE: I should also note that utter lack of class is perhaps best exemplified by disrupting a political convention. It's one thing to stand on the street corner with a sign (honorable), it's one thing to meet with your congressman (honorable), and it's a whole different ballgame to get tossed out of a convention (utterly pathetic). If they want to stand outside MSG and holler away, so be it, but have some respect and handle protests the right way. By the way, I feel the same way about the kids for Nader at UIowa, who haven't showered in a few days, apparently don't own a non-ripped pair of pants, and haven't discovered a razor yet. If you want to know why the mainstream political press/establishment/America doesn't take you seriously, well, perhaps you should look in the mirror. Of course, it's a lot easier for these folks to just label us (vanilla mainstream conservatives) as tools of the system, which is why I think they choose this route.

I was chatting with someone today, and they were wondering why there weren't massive protests in Boston during the GMNC.

"Because Republican's are busy working", I quickly informed him (except when they're blogging, of course)!

And they don't like to look like fools.
