‘We get up early to beat the crowds’

Denver Police now have a new slogan:

The Denver police union is selling T-shirts that poke fun at protesters at last month’s Democratic National Convention, but the main target isn’t laughing. The back of the shirts reads, “We get up early to beat the crowds” and “2008 DNC,” and has a caricature of a police officer holding a baton.
The front has the number 68 with a slash through it, a reference to the Recreate 68 Coalition, which organized several demonstrations during the convention.

Unfortunately, the hippie peacenik scum in Denver were such gutless weasels — not a single Molotov cocktail! — that there were scarcely any beatings at all, so that my hopes to cover a full-fledged blood-in-the-streets riot were disappointed.
Just one more reason to despise the pacifist vermin.

Video: Media swarms anti-war vets

Not a riot, but there was a serious risk of being blinded by all the camera flashes.

Posing for their media moment.

Video: Anti-war march in Denver

They mustered about 4,000 marchers — 8% of the promised 50,000.

Radical obscenity.

Notice the astonishing whiteness of the marchers with the “no more racism” sign. The only person of color in the photo is a press photographer (left).

Hillary: ‘Thanks . . . send money’

E-mail from Hillary Clinton:

Dear Robert,
Standing on that stage tonight in front of 20,000 Democrats unified behind Senator Obama, I saw a bright future for America. I saw millions of people across the country working as one to elect the next Democratic President. I saw a new President and a new Congress giving a voice to the voiceless. I saw America, the land of endless potential, regaining its role as a leader in the world.
I couldn’t be prouder of our party, of our nominee, and of all the work you and I have done together over the course of this campaign on behalf of the American people.
I knew that as I stood in front of that podium, I wasn’t alone. I had you, and everyone who has supported me, standing right up there with me. And that means the world to me.
Thank you again for everything you’ve done. Now let’s get to work helping elect Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and all of our great Democratic candidates!

And then a link to contribute to retire her campaign debt. Heh.

‘A meandering, tedious mess’

No, not my latest article. And not “Jessica Sideways.”

“A meandering, tedious mess” is what Andrew Sullivan called Tuesday’s speeches by Mark Warner and Bob Casey at the DNC.
