WHITHER? WITHER:

Whither the Democrats? (Margaret Kimberly, 9/10/04, The Black Commentator)

The day before the 2004 Republican National Convention began, Sunday, August 29, more than 400,000 courageous people marched through the streets of New York to tell the world that they oppose the Bush agenda.

Courageous? The only risk they faced was another al-Qaeda strike.

Amazing how courageous you can be when the worst thing that can happen is that Big Media and Celebrities are going to suck up to you and sing your praises, isn't it?

Hey, they had to hang out with Michael Moore in hot weather after a two-mile walk. That's pretty gutsy in my book.

Actually, if you'll recall, Republican supporters SET FIRE to one of the floats. Dumb[pelosi].

Sure it wasn't an errant bong?

There was a real danger from commuters, cab drivers and delivery people whose lives were disrupted by these self-important vermin. Where was the PLA when we needed them?

Monsieur Anonymous:

Do you mean the dragon float ?

That was set on fire by the people carrying it during the demonstration, which makes it unlikely that they were Republicans.
