Can you handle more DC photos? **Dialup Warning: Lotsa pics**
My very first protest ever! I'm still jazzed. I so needed to get outta this red state for a while, and I'm so glad I did!

Look who we saw as we walked to assemble!



Waiting to march:



Still waiting:



Code Pink Women -- they rocked!



So all the protesters were smelly hippies, huh? I saw LOTS of folks who looked a lot like these sweet ladies:



And hmmm....these protestors are about as far from hippie as you can get:



Veterans for Peace:



It took me a while to figure out WHAT these were supposed to be:



These guys were fun:



Me and my DC friend:

11. Yes, he was marching in the streets with us!
I went over to him and shook his hand.

I believe I also saw Wallace Shawn, but I'm not 100% sure it was him. It sure looked like him, though.

9. Yes the Turd People!
I took lots of pictures of the Turd People! They were great! I have no idea what the message was, and I kept saying 'aren't those turd people great' and nobody leaned over and said 'hey they aren't turd people they are peanut people' so I guess they were turd people. Hidey Ho!

12. oh and I can't imagine what all the stuck up prudes
so upset because ANSWER actually includes a bona fide revolutionary communist party and what will joe sixpack think when he sees commies on cspan and what about all the hippies; what will all the stuck up prudes think when they learn about THE TURD PEOPLE? Their heads will explode.

8. Yeah, about those brown paper puppets/mask thingies...
They came over to us Billionaires For Bush and we "danced" with them for a couple of minutes...

in a kind of back and forth thing.

Then they all fell down "dead."

We were never sure what they were, but their "costumes" had gender.

10. You were one of the BFB? You guys were awesome!
I only had one disposable camera (stupid, stupid mistake) but my friend took some of you guys to send me w/her digital.

Which one were you?

16. I was holding ...
"Ignore The Downing Street memos" and "Where's The profit In Peace?" signs.

My BFB name is Mrs. Lovely Bubbling-Crude, wife of mr. Lone Star Crude III (Trey Crude). We were in yachting togs.

18. Nice! We loved you guys, and everyone there.
Since I was staying w/a friend I didn't make it to any of the DU meetups . I looked for signs and DU tee-shirts but never saw anyone. I actually asked one woman w/a DU sign if she was with Democraticunderground and she had no idea what I was talking about. Turns out her sign ("Do you know about DU? Shhhh.") was about the OTHER DU (depleted uranium). Duh. I felt like an idiot. =)

13. So glad you went!
Thank you for more beautiful pics. Having only been there in spirit, I'm enjoying every one I've seen.

What were those people carrying the um, brown paper people (for lack of a better way to put it) trying to portray, anyway? Saw them while 'watching' the march via the traffic cam and in a few other pics, too. Still haven't figured it out.

Again, thanks for the pics. and thank you for going.
