The 2008 Republican National Convention

This lively fete will be held at the Xcel Energy Center. In St. Paul, Minnesota.

Seven miles from the 35W bridge that collapsed yesterday.





Where will this rank on the scale of disgusting after-the-fact advocacy compared to the 2004 RNC in New York City? This party seems to have a way of finding a hole they've helped dig and take a big fat dump in it.

Good job, New Orleans, in saying (rightfully), "
thanks, but fuck you."

With what should Minnesotans with a sense of pride and loyalty to their state fill those seven miles? Banners? Bricks? Or themselves, in protest, pointing west and saying "This should be your first priority, not Iraq, you stupid child."

(ADDED: this is my 100th entry on this blog. hoo-ray.)
