McCain and Palin Protested Across the USA

demonstration signs against mccain and palinWherever John McCain and Sarah Palin go, they’re meeting protests by local voters who oppose their policies. These protests are taking place in swing states, suggesting that the McCain/Palin convention bounce may have been based on a bubble of personality politics. Carson City, Nevada, Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Grand Rapids, Michigan don’t have a lot in common – other than that large groups of people confronted the McCain/Palin campaign in these cities.

It didn’t help that when Sarah Palin arrived in Cedar Rapids, she told everyone how happy she was to be in Grand Rapids. Apparently, there is no island in Alaska from which one can see Iowa, and so Sarah Palin knows nothing about the Midwest.

Congratulations to these Americans for standing up against four more years of the same fear and attacks against freedom that we’ve been suffering under since the Republicans grabbed the White House in 2000.

    Hey, protesting has become trendy again, weeee!

    Not that it’ll do any good – the Republicans just ignore it and tell the media not to report on it and it just “didn’t happen.”

    Let’s see if they can connive their way to the White House again this year by denying voters from key states who have foreclosed homes the right to vote, use those same rigged electronic voting booths to “record” peoples votes (with no paper trail), conduct robo-calls to millions of voters the night before the election to tell them that their polling station has been moved, and all the other “tricks” they have up their sleeves.

    Don’t put it past them since they’ve gotten away with it TWICE before and have also gotten away with MURDER over the past 8 years. Prepare for the coming police state.

    Wow…major dissent…50 in Carson City….Number not mentioned in Iowa, but it wasn’t much for people waiting to buy hot dogs to shut down and out those “protestors”…and the largest group, 200 in Grand rapids were dwarfed by the thousands that showed up for McCain….they were nothing more but grains of sand on the beach…

    Below are examples of some of the protestors. Appears to me that the protests are rather small, led by obnoxiously loud liberal groups. Why do Obama and Biden not have protestors? Maybe the media isn’t covering them. Maybe the conservatives are too “classy” to protest in this way, and would rather converse in an exchange of ideas through less disruptive means. Or maybe the conservatives appreciate and respect other’s points of views.

    A small group of protesters, led by liberal advocacy group One Wisconsin Now…

    …four female students from the University of Iowa Feminist Majority and Anti-War Alliance… (

    …the last of the protesters — mostly college-aged students…

    …a few antiwar protesters…

    Because it was found out that a large group was flown in with the Mike Schultz crowd….the average media really don’t like obvious stage performances like that. It makes them look bad…
