Did anyone notice how quickly Scottie said that protesters have the right
to protest?

You know it made him sick to say it, but I took that as a plus. None of the RW talking heads dared to infringe on the first ammendment.

Unlike in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 I wonder if it was Donahue on O'really that made a difference, or the fact that the majority of America now agrees with the protesters.

3. yeah, but it is a case of SAY one thing and DO ANOTHER.
They say protesters have the right ... then the put them in protest pens; or they arrest them; or they intimidate them; or they deny them permits to protest...it is not what comes out of their lips that is meaningful with the white house mafia. it is what they do that takes on a deeper level of meaning.

My parents used to say, DO AS I SAY. NOT AS I DO. there used to be a great discrepancy between one thing and the other. I had to learn later on in life to really DO as I said. For me, it was one of the greatest lessons i learned in life.
