    • Tornado night
      I spent a half-hour tonight sitting in the hallway, waiting out a tornado warning. It never hit here (I don’t think we got more than a sprinkle of rain) but it did hit the Hellmouth, where I used to live north of here. It hit the local mall, and took down a nearby car dealership … Continue reading Tornado night

Union Station protest at the MSNBC kiosk

Look for us on your evening news, Conflucians.  We got ourselves a posse and went down to Union Station in front of the MSNBC kiosk.  We protested and shouted slogans (in NPR-speak) and completely drowned out the Obamaphiles.

We had a lot of support from passersby.  I was very encouraged that there were many sympathetic people.  I don’t think the Obama people knew what hit them.  They’ve had such a free ride for so long.  No one challenged them. no one was skeptical.  They have been handled with kid gloves like pampered little brats.  But in the face of all of the people they’ve been calling stupid, old women, they seemed oddly subdued.

Chris Matthews made an appearance and stood there silently while some of us finally got a chance to tell him how we felt to his face.  The coward waited until we left before he came down from the stage to talk to the crowd.

We stayed for about 45 minutes and then marched away up 16th street, the media in hot pursuit.  They followed us to the Starbucks and hung around to interview.  There were dozens of photographers getting shots of beautiful Murphy with her strawberry blonde hair striding up the hill, eyes fixed in front of her.  She leaned over to me with a sly smile on her face and whispered, “I’m so damn glad we came to Denver.”

Update: We broke a site record!  Murphy is getting tons of wonderful comments at PUMAPac and some have even donated money.  Keep up the good work getting the word out.
