Boogaboogabooga! 9/11 gonna get you!

Jeezus!  Absolutely no shame.  Seraphin’s got it down.

This isn’t about not remembering.  We all remember; we’ll always remember.  The way it was portrayed at the RNC is simple  unadulterated propaganda.

Boogaboogabooga! 9/11 gonna get you!

It’s all they’ve got left. No platform, no hope.

Just like this commenter points out.  The ReThuglicans have no platform – no hope without using the fear card.  Scaring the shit out of people is their Hail Mary pass.  The ReThug ship is taking on water and needs to go down.

Code Pink & Sarah Palin

Give ’em hell.   Those spirited women of CODEPINK had this little ditty down.

“Sarah Palin, we know what she stands for. You’ll save a fetus in the womb, then send them off to war!”

Attacking the Messengers

So Donna Brazile somehow managed to get pepper sprayed.

“I got a strong whiff — just toxic — and my head and throat are still hurting,” said Ms. Brazile, who appears on CNN as a political analyst. “I’ll avoid the protesters tomorrow.”

Yeah, I’ll bet.  She doesn’t strike me as the protesting type anyways.

But Amy Goodman was arrested when attempting to get the scoop on two producers for Democracy Now! who were arrested, as was an AP photographer.

Democracy Now! stands by Goodman, Kouddous and Salazar and condemns this action by Twin Cities law enforcement as a clear violation of the freedom of the press and the First Amendment rights of these journalists.

They are urging journalists and concerned citizens to contact the office of St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman (651-266-8535) and the Ramsey County Jail (651-266-9350) and demand the immediate release of Goodman, Kouddous and Salazar.

I had watched this episode of Democracy Now! last night on the unlawful detention of another Democracy Now! reporter/correspondent, Elizabeth Press, in a house raid by the police departments of St. Paul/Minneapolis and the feds.  And nothing, nothing! pisses off a fellow unruly more than suppression of free speech and of the press.   He doesn’t disappoint either.
