A Local Moonbat
There's a first for everything; today I saw my first anti-war protestor. Remember, I live in Phoenix which is one of the more conservative big cities in America and my neighborhood is conservative for Phoenix. I did not see a Kerry sign anywhere around me during 2004, and only rarely when I was in other parts of town.
So I was rather surprised to see this gentleman parading along Cactus Road in front of Paradise Valley Mall this afternoon, and his get-up inspired me to snap a few quick photos.
You can see that he's quite creative with his "Not-See (get it?) Wartch-Dogs". Unfortunately the other side is not as visually engaging.
I was tempted to switch the camera to videotape mode and start a little Evan Coyne Maloney dialogue with him, but his gear was outrageous enough that he was getting some flack from people stuck at the intersection, and I reasoned that getting beat up as a peacenik, however ironic it might sound here on the blog, was not how I wanted to spend the next few minutes. Not that I think he got beat up; in all probability he did get the bird a few times.
