I think there should be a "WHERE'S OSAMA?" march on Washington.
I'm not kidding. Even theme it like "Where's Waldo" for some humor. Make it look ridiculous. "What happened to your REAL war, Mr. Bush? The guy who ACTUALLY ATTACKED US?"

Really. This is unacceptable that it's been four years, our President threw the search for Bin Laden out the window, and here he goes and attacks again.

It'd have to be huge, though, like not just DU. I'd be game, though. Is something like this already in the works, or is this the sort of thing that normal nerds like us could actually organize without the backing of some major PAC?

2. I've never organized anything like this before
but I would assume the best course of action to take would be

0.1. get a good, small group of committed people together
1. organize a date? (NO idea how to do this)
2. set up a .org for it along with a mailing list and maybe pre-protest meetups
3. set up a paypal account for donations to pay for advertisements on forums/blogs, domain hosting, photocopies, etc.
4. spread the word around on liberal forums and blogs
5. sell t-shirts (I just had to add that, I love making t-shirts)

Of course, there is the off chance that if the protest were not planned soon enough, Bush would miraculously catch Osama and the march would need a new theme. That could pose a problem.

4. Kick
It's been a few days, but there are a lot of new ActCorps members who haven't seen this, and I really think it's a good idea. (I'm sure I'm by no means the first to think of it, either.)

5. There should be ads taken out in newspaper and TV all around the nation
Where's Osama, if you see him call the President?

Remind George W. that Osama is the one he promised to catch.
