At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

IRAN AND JIHAD CENTRAL AT THE DNC
What the media won't cover. This is the party of the jihad --it is. Of course there would be an Iranian propaganda tent, they got their ticket - Obama and Biden. The party of Ahmadinejad .Over at Looking at the Left: Iranian Potemkin Village at the DNC. BTW, el Marco has the best coverage of the real story- and it's not the story is not on the convention floor. The story is in the streets. and the not the mainstream media is not giving you any coverage on it. Inside the center is pablum. Theater of the absurd
At Civic Center, an exhibit called PICTURES OF YOU, a veritable Potemkin Village of how wonderful life is in Iran. Views from inside and outside Iranian propaganda tent.

From the park we made our way to the 16th Street Mall and the Mall was hopping!
Every few feet we ran into a delegate or a cop. There were no homeless people there and it was strange to walk around without being aggressively panhandled by bums. However, there were plenty of bum-like vendors and a mean ventriloquist with a dummy that looked cursed to me.
The perennial religious dudes were also out in force and we saw this guy:
After another block or so we were commenting on the lack of violence and action in the crowd when a protester got into it with a Christian sign guy. This whole thing was staged, if you ask me. Police magically appeared and the protester got into it with them. Within a few seconds, the bike police, SWAT, and the horse police appeared. The bike police formed a protective circle around the hippy and the cop (both on the ground by now) while SWAT stopped the mall buses and got the crowd back. The horse police just looked really cool. We have video of all this and I'll post it later.
Meanwhile, the friends of the hippy were climbing on fire hydrants and screaming about their friend. Some loud chick just went on auto-rant and a totally different hippy went on this loud outburst concerning the first amendment.
That hippy ended his out burst by saying, "What do you think of that, Officer?" To which the SWAT guy replied, "More cowbell." :D
The police allowed the hippies to continue to shout at the Christians but not touch them. It was all very civilized

At the very end as we were waiting at a lonely bus stop all by ourselves we were approached by by about 40 anarchists:
We figured that about 95% of them couldn't buy a legal drink.
