These folks are outside the Supreme Court holding a protest about the Obama Birth Certificate 'Controversy'

I've gone to Anti-war protests here in Wilmington that have more folks show up to join the group.

7. Well if the media reports this - they'll count the 2 people you can see in the background too.
I swear to god this happens at every protest I've been to in DC.

I'll be there protesting the war and you'll always have a pro-war crowd there. And honestly, you can probably stand there and count the people, usually around 50 or so make the trip. But you'll see in the papers something like 500 or 1000 pro-war supporters showed up. My guess is they'll not only count those 50 people but all the other folks standing around whether they are anti-war people yelling at them, the cops or people walking behind this sorry lot of folks.

6. C'mon, give 'em a break - it was cold. It was Friday and traffic was bad.
maybe a lot of them couldn't get off from work. Maybe they had a sinus infection.

There probably would have been maybe eight - ten more.

10. I love it when they pray
it just makes it so much more fun for me to mock them when their prayers aren't answered yet again.

14. Please, it wasn't a protest.
It was a vigil.

Donofrio (the person who brought the lawsuit) urged anyone who showed up for the vigil NOT to bring signs. I guess that's the difference between a vigil and a protest.

15. Does that one flag (on left) still have a price tag on it?
Probably picked it up at a gas station on the way to the protest.

19. And when god doesn't answer their prayers?
What's their excuse then?

So much for their "almighty" god.

20. So let's be generous and throw in the guy in the background
and add a few just for giggles, and say there's twenty people there.


I'm really disapppointed in these paultards. I wanted more of them to waste their time on this shite.

22. I love the guy in the brown coat standing behind them.
You just know he's thinking, what the fuck are these loony freaks praying about now?

Here's a tip freepers. You can pray at home, you don't have to travel to D.C. to meet up with other lonely freepers just to pray. God doesn't care where you are. He'll ignore you from whereever.
