Sic Semper Tyrannis

Well that would make for some great pictures!

Or it would, except it's just a big tease.

Headline: Democrats to be out in force at GOP meet:

MINNEAPOLIS - Delegates to the Republican National Convention who are traveling into downtown St. Paul next week will be treated to a billboard-sized welcome from the other party.

The Democratic National Committee bought billboard space to display a picture of John McCain embracing President Bush with the message, "Does this look like change to you?"

"We're going to spend every day looking for every opportunity to remind voters in the Twin Cities and across the country that a vote for John McCain is a vote for George W. Bush and his failed policies," said Damien LaVera, a spokesman for the DNC.
Quick question: if McCain wins, will that mean voters liked the idea of “a vote for George W. Bush and his failed policies?”

Anyway: saying “Democrats to be out in force” implies large numbers. Other than the billboard and a rapid-response office (like the one Republicans have in Denver), the article says only that they’ll be holding “daily press conferences.”

I’m sure there’ll be plenty of Code Pinksters and anarchists and communists and other various and sundry subgenres of the liberal stripe in attendance, so that’ll be fun. Still, that headline was nothing but a big tease.
