Craig supporters call for boycott of MSP!
http://www.landrights.org/id/Craig%20Boycott%20E-mail1....

By ambushing Senator Larry Craig, the Minneapolis St Paul Airport Police have effectively declared war on the West. They are primarily responsible for greatly weakening private property rights and Federal land use advocates in the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and in Congress. We are urging you to make all your flight arrangements avoiding the Minneapolis-St Paul Airport for at least the next year and probably longer. Well keep you posted as the boycott develops.

Northwest Airlines uses Minneapolis St Paul as their main hub. They
are also headquartered in Minneapolis. So we would suggest that you
also avoid using Northwest Airlines. That will put additional pressure on
the airport authorities and police to change their behavior.

Send Northwest Airlines an e-mail letting them know you are boycotting
the Minneapolis St Paul International Airport. That also means that Northwest has to be part of this boycott.


Just a few points. First, what will they do for the 2008 GOP convention? Fly into Milwaukee and drive?

Second, boycott NWA? That doesn't exactly make sense. Speaking of which, good luck flying into and out of Idaho without getting on a Northwest plane. Your one-stop choices out of BOI to, say, IAD are going to be United and Northwest. To DCA (picking Washington airports for obvious reasons), NWA is pretty much your only option. JFK? NWA's your cheapest bet. All those NWA flights are routed through MSP. There's a reason Craig found himself in MSP, guys.

1. I think I heard someone on the radio say that
they would fly into O'hare and then bus into MSP...

A bunch of rethugs on buses for 7 hours with only one tiny toilet... ;-)

I once had to go from Milwaukee Chicago by bus to catch a flight, but that only took ninety minutes!

:rofl:

12. Only one toilet on the bus...
I guess they'll have to tap their toes across the aisle of the bus.

4. There's your deep thinkers.
I wonder if they have any idea how many Fortune500 companies are headquartered in the Twin Cities.

7. WTF? "ambush"?? "declared war on the West"?? "primarily responsible for greatly
weakening private property rights"??

Jesus. That just sounds deranged to me.

8. Methinks Craig has, now, officially, protested too much.
What next? His wide stance is a Liberal conspiracy?

9. I think they need to call for a boycott of Mitch McChinless
and the Repugnican senatorial caucus. They are the ones who are throwing craig under the bus. Do you realize what those assholes are doing to Larry, guys?
