Little known facts about the protesters

By Ben Westhoff

Think all protesters are smelly, humorless, overzealous, granola crunchers? Think again! All kinds of rabble rousers descended on St. Paul Monday. Though most of them claimed to be unenthused with John McCain’s politics, at least one found him alluring in a sexual sense. Welcome to the freedom cage!

It wasn’t always easy to tell who was who. The folks wearing scarves over their faces were not necessarily anarchists, for example. No assumptions!

Little known fact: Though you won’t find many protesters country western bars, they sometimes like to sing and dance in a line.

Finally, just because someone has dreadlocks doesn’t mean they can’t support Republicans.
