  • Showing Their Colors

       May 15, 2004

    Madison, Wisconsin has one of the most beautiful Capitols in the country. Atop it sits the Miss Forward statute. She faces Washington, D.C., so it's nice to think that she may be watching over my partner on this site, jkhat, and making sure he has a steady supply of beer, brats & cheese. Other times, I think she's turning her back on the many, many, many Dummocrats who populate my city.

    Every Saturday the grounds of the Capitol are taken over by farmers from all over the county and beyond. Thousands walk around buying veggies, cheese, herbs and more. Because of the crowds, the Farmer's Market has also become a haven for political activists. I expect that as my birthday (all I want is four more years and four more beers!) draws closer and closer, the scene will get more shrill, after all, this is liberal heaven. For now, however, it dispells the notion that Republicans are nasty "attack dogs" and liberals are their victims.

    The booths for both the Democratic Party and Kerry for President have almost nothing to do with their candidates. They're not pro anything. They're anti-Bush and that's it. That's the only message they are getting out. Check out these pictures.

    I heard a couple of gentlemen discussing the fact that there were no Bush supporters around. Now, that's the fault of the State & Dane County Republican Parties for not having their own booth, but I'd also like to think that Republicans have better things to do on a beautiful Saturday in May than sit by blow up dolls of John Kerry. They'll be there when it matters in the fall.

    But, I do think that Bush supporters need to show their support more, especially in liberal cities like Madison. Pin a Bush button to your shirt. Wear an American flag pin. Show your colors. The opposition is surely showing their true colors.
