BUBBLE BOY'S BRIGADES
By Elaine Meinel Supkis
Well, baby bubble boy couldn't meet the bereaved mothers besieging his swimminghole/trike track but he summons his buddies to save him! So some actually show up, showing clearly that there is always some people you can fool all the time.
So, using my semi-magical pretend reporters, here is the story today, of the huuuuge pro-war demonstration! By the way, the laconic press claims thousands, yes, thousands showed up to demand more war. But my bean counting reporters who are magical saw that every photograph of this great crowd, seldom is there more than three people in a picture and the people stand one person deep! Excuse me, but the arithmetic for crowds is, for every ten anti war people, the press counts one and for pro war crowds it is the reverse.
So the "thousands" are more likely to be a few hundred, if that. If you count the town drunk and the preacher looking for some ass.
The press and the pro war types are certainly happy campers in their new digs!
Energetic young man who can't find his own socks, much less a military recruiting station.
He won the hog calling contest but lost the egg laying one.
Bubble Boy's double shows up at last. Took no questions and gave no answers.
From Yahoo news:
A few Bush supporters went to the edge of the anti-war camp on Saturday, trying to remove some of the hundreds of white crosses bearing fallen soldiers' names. They had a list from families who did not want their sons' or daughters' names associated with Sheehan's group.Another brainiac proving there is no Intelligent Designer for no designer even drunk out of his gourd, would be proud of creating this sort of animal. If He did, He certainly won't own up to in the next morning.
Sheriff's deputies said they could remove the name tags but not the crosses, so the group removed a few tags and left without incident.
There also were some heated moments at the pro-Bush rally when Bush supporters mistakenly identified two people as war protesters. The two walked in with a sign that read "Say No to War — Unless a Democrat is President."
Many Bush supporters only saw the top of the sign and believed the men were war protesters, so they began shouting and chasing the pair out. One man tore up their signs.
When Will Marean of Minneapolis kept repeating that he was on the Bush side, one Bush supporter shook his hand and apologized.
From a Texas "news" paper
An estimated 3,000 to 4,000 people attended a pro-Bush rally in Crawford, waving flags and pledging their allegiance to U.S. troops. At times, they accused Cindy Sheehan of dishonoring the war death of her own son, Casey, who was in the Army.Now all the non-Texan sources say less than 1,500 and trust me when I say, it is easy to tell a crowd of over 3,000 vs less than 1,500. It is dramatically different and all the photos, all are very sparse with people. You could spit down Crawford and are more likely to hit a cow than these bovines.
Seriously, if they are so gung-ho, why aren't they all marching to the recruiting offices?
Here is one student who tried to get the Young Republicans to sign up: From Neat Things (via Atrios.blogspot.com)
I finally decided to participate in Operation Yellow Elephant, and I think I successfully ticked off the republicans a bit. I went to their callout and spent a few minutes trying to recruit soldiers for Iraq after the meeting; unfortunately, they had a BOUNCER at their callout, who decided to shut me down. I was called insensitive, Michael Moore, and other nasty names.Go and watch the video. It is rather funny. Certainly, some youngish Repubs need military training to reign in some pretty awesome potbellies.
Oh, and more soldiers died today. They die every day. And the Sunni promise uprisings against the dumbest Constitution to float up in a toilet.
