Democrats in Denver Day 3 

7:30 PM (permalink)
Babs reports:
Here in Denver we've met so many people who have never seen anything like us, even though we've been spreading our message since 2002 already. We had a most interesting encounter with an Iraq war veteran named Brian.

He just returned from Iraq three weeks ago and he was really drawn to our performance. He felt compelled to tell us some hair-raising battle stories, and volunteered to be our extra special forces security detail for the afternoon.

We saw a big parade on Arapahoe & 16th Street put on by Iraq Veterans Against the War-- the best float was the giant truck with the lovely riot police dressed like teenage mutant ninja turtles. We ran into the ninjas again later just outside the Pepsi Center where Joe Biden was speaking.

We performed for a massive formation of hot muscle men with batons--we were practically sandwiched between them and the gaggle of paparazzi snapping our photos. It was very exciting!

When the big show was over and all the delegates streamed out, we tried to buy their influence but they were hard-core Obama supporters and could not be swayed!
