At the Texas GOP convention, last week, they were selling buttons, T-shirts and bumper stickers with the slogan "If Obama Wins, Will We Still Call It The White House?" emblazoned on them. Every bit as classy as you'd expect from the Party of Abraham Lincoln.
The National committee is agitating for a big police presence at the convention in Minneapolis, later this summer. It's possible some little old ladies in pink will be staging an anti-war demonstration, one day that week and they are afraid there will be wholesale violence. By who, I wonder? They also claim evidence of promised activity by fanatical, hard core biker gangs, the kind that have their shoes bolted to the pedals, wear stretchy lycra shorts and brightly colored jerseys with pouch pockets in the back. Scary.
