bare buns for... what?
I don't understand protesters who believe that getting nekkid is an effective tool in getting their point across. They'll attract some attention from the media and gawking onlookers, but whatever message the protesters attempt to send is lost as soon as they take their clothes off.
Don't get me wrong. I like to get nekkid. But I wouldn't do it in court to get the divorce judge on my side, and I wouldn't do it in the streets to get Congress to let the ban on "assault" weapons expire. It's just not smart politics.
Literally showing your ass DOES NOT reinforce whatever argument you have. Pulling a stunt such as that one makes you appear to be a crazed, leftist flake---a typical, left-dingbat, screeching, feces-flinging monkey. By the time you are arrested for lewd conduct, nobody remembers what you were protesting.
Let 'em keep it up. They're practically guaranteeing four more years of Bush.
This is true. Sometimes showing one's ass is just showing one's ass. And that's exactly what those "protesters" did.
Actually, I think it's just a bunch of frustrated exhibitionists looking for a way to legitimize their kink. Not that there's anything wrong with a little kink. I like a little kink myself sometimes, just not in the middle of traffic outside of Madison Square Gardens in the middle of the day. Back of a big old taxicab at night driving around the Gardens, well, that might be a whole 'nother matter.
"I like to get nekkid. But I wouldn't do it in court to get the divorce judge on my side,"
I got the distinct impression, from reading your blog, that you don't give a shit about getting the judge on your side. Heck, at this point, you might as well show up in court nekkid . . .
Aw cmon. A link with a pic would have been nice...
If that had been my kid on the front page naked,my e-mail to her wouldn't have expressed displeasure over her nude appearence in public. It would have just said the check for the tuition is cancelled and so were her credit cards.Protest on your own dime,kid.
