I girl and a guy are watching and he's grinning. She makes a comment about my shirt that seems to be a "MEAN PEOPLE SUCK" shirt. The comment is meant to deman me, but I move over the vest I'm wearing to expose the word "DEAN'S" which makes it now read "DEAN'S MEAN PEOPLE SUCK" and she liteally has a spasm, a violent, very pronounced spasm.
I say, "You're not a Dean supporter are you?" and she shoots me a glare that screams almost as loudly as Howie, "YES!!!" So I say, "You ARE a Dean suppoeter....let me make you feel at home....YeeeeOOOOWWWWWWW"
Her date laughs out loud and his chances for something-something that evening are now nothing-nothing.
I say, "That was so enlightening, I'd like to get that down correctly for the historical record." Instead of making his case, he leans forward and belches. I reply, "You did better with your arguement this time."
A few people, either college journalists or perhaps Indy Media types told the guy to chill out when he really got soun up. They reminded him that people have a right NOT to be bullied into silence by fascists. So lacking support, he wanders off.
That all pretty much happened after firebrand showed up. She arrived not all that long after I did and while having forgotten about my call to kristinn, I wasn't surprised to see her. I figured she came down on her own to check out the liberals in their native habitat. So she took the sign and I was Saddam Hussein in an "Ace of Spades" costume.
Liberals live and die with peer pressure, so it's very common that they try it to make you question your effectiveness in hopes that you'll leave early. Liberals just don't get it. At least at a minimum we always get one who says of our signs, "I don't get it."
Well a surprising number DO get it and were readily laughing at the "SAVE ME - VOTE DEMOCRAT" sign and the "WAFFLE HOUSE one. Even got a "high five" from a MOveOn customer.
A lot of thire followers have no clue, no understanding. Because I was cooler than the MoveOn event, they liked me as it were. I even made a "New Best Friend", a guy wearing a shirt mocking Cheney. But my "COPS CHEER" button was funnier. I gave it to him and he and his friends were laughing their asses off. We were cooler that Janeane and Al so he was now on our side.
