Update 8/7/09: Dinah didn't go down without a fight as the picture in today's Denver Post will attest.
I may have been MIA lately possums, but there was no way I was missing La Pelosi...
She was here to visit a Clinic for the homeless. (of course)
The Democrat Rent a Mob was out in force with their pre printed signs, clipboards and megaphones. They had the corner right in front of the Clinic and we occupied the remaining three corners.
I saw only one ACORNite, but there were more community organizer clipboards than you could shake a stick at. We weren't buying any of that because our side came well prepared and I saw a fair number of people with facts at their fingertips. They READ THE BILL.
I'm happy to report that we outnumbered them by a 3-4 to 1 margin. The crowd grew steadily throughout the afternoon and I'd estimate it to be at 200 or so at the peak.
The word spread through the crowd that La Pelosi would be sneaking into the clinic via a back entrance (somehow appropriate, no?) so the crowd migrated to the back of the building with the Obamabots forming on the right and the well dressed VRWC congregating on the left, co-mingling in the middle.
A 4 car, 3 motorcycle police escort accompanied La Pelosi's Yukon Denali (Green for thee but not for me - it wasn't hybrid or Flex Fuel). Her Majesty was whisked into the building by her secret service detail. It was like she was hiding or something. Hmmm? She did not deign to address the well dressed mob - or her puny bunch of supporters. Not so much as a wave. I guess she was put off by all the BOOOOOOOOOS! It was so great.
After her Royal Botoxness entered the building it was time for dueling chants. Their side had a megaphone and professional union chanters, but we always managed to get the best of them. Hah! WE even sang a rousing chorus of God Bless America! That really ticked them off.
I'd venture to guess that our side outnumbered them by 4 to 1 with the American flags, too. I'm happy to report that the Gadsden flag was also well represented.
The only swastika we saw was from the Moonbat side accompanied with the phrase "No to Fascism". I guess they didn't get the DNC memo with the talking points. (Right. Who was it who wants us to snitch on our fellow citizens again?)
The only violent incident - alas, happened to me just as La Pelosi was sneaking out and slithering away.
There I was, holding my goofy sign, chanting "Just say no" and minding my own business when some shabbily dressed, deranged, post menopausal moonbat with an SEIU printed sign attacked me and the sign I was holding up. I had to holler at two nearby policemen for help - she was trying to push me and my sign down on the ground.
She WENT OFF and became TOTALLY unhinged.
Being a typical moonbat - she tried to blame me for the whole incident. Unfortunately for her,the photog from the Denver Post and one of the local news stations saw the whole exchange and gave the police the heads up that she was the instigator.
The cops told her to behave herself or she'd have to leave and when the reporters came over to get my information and started asking questions about the attack - she booked.
One guy from their side came over to make sure I was okay and apologized for the incident. I thank him for that.
(All in all, I'd say it was a successful afternoon.)
