New Year’s Eve 2008: The year in pictures

Here is the photo that says it all:  The August 25 protest that PUMA did in front of the MSNBC kiosk in Denver.  We literally drowned out the wimpy assed Obamaphiles who were milling around and jeered Chris Matthews when he showed up on the set.  Harriet Christian is holding up the big sign.  She has the yellow plaid shirt on.  And somewhere in this crowd is smarmy Rebecca Traister from Salon who called me minutes before this event.  I told her to meet us there.  I never saw or spoke to her.  We were loud, fearless and came in all stripes, ages, professions, walks of life and lifestyles.  Traister just filled out the typical old, uneducated, working class sino-peruvian lesbian meme worksheet, filed it and called it a day.  I’d call her a bitch but that would be kind.  Simofish has this youtube video of the protest:

Some of these pics were taken with my phone so they aren’t professional grade.  Do you have any notable pics you want to add to a Confluence slideshow?  Send them to me at theconfluence08 at yahoo dot com and I’ll put one together.
