Another Mayor Daley lands another convention.

Good lord, the Green Party is having their convention in Chicago and they are suggesting that their cause should be "taken to the streets." Ya know, like the glory days of 1968, man!

Imagine the words of the Green Party's most inspired orators thundering through the downtown in this busy pedestrian area, inviting curious onlookers.

And while we Democrats are still having a little eensy weensy war of words (that Markos is such a sweet talker, inn't he? Yay, netroots!) it turns out there's a battle for the Green Party nomination for President between Ralph Nader, who says no, I don't want to be the Green Party candidate I'm going to run on my own good looks and charm, and former Georgia pol and noted hothead Cynthia McKinney, who says the hell you will, Ralph, en garde or whatever! Well, not really, but try as I might, I can't avoid the image of the blood of Cynthia McKinney and Ralph Nader flowing through Chicago's rivers "Kill Bill" style...


  1. oh i remember 68 quite well.

    god, these people now,like nader, embarrass me.

  2. I'm not sure why they fail to realize how embarassing it is to have "actions" and "protests" where about 100 people show up. On a good day.

  3. Take it from a former Green: these folks are so out of touch.

  4. It's really too bad, because they're right about a lot of things. And I do love that nutball Cynthia McKinney.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
