Democratic Convention 2008

Where do the Democrats stand on feathertapping?


I haven't been impressed by the strength of dissent at this convention, but it's good to see that old fashioned Dada still plays:

The flipside is written in the Cyrillic alphabet, and the pranksters handing these out were calling on Obama to make his position on birdwatching clear.

NEXT: Barrmania!

    WHY I WANT TO F*CK RONALD REAGAN [1967] by JG Ballard [excerpt from “The Atrocity Exhibition” ]

    RONALD REAGAN AND THE CONCEPTUAL AUTO DISASTER.
