$ and more…


New York City, Sunday, August 29, on the eve of the Republican National Convention.

We will gather in front of the Plaza Hotel at 12 noon. With the flags of all our state and chapter delegations fluttering in the wind, our decal-decked limo, freshly returned from it's “Get On The Limo” tour through the Midwest battleground states, will arrive to a hero's welcome. The muscular sounds of the “Let Other People Go Hungry” March Band will resound through the air, and we will set off towards Madison Square Garden to thank President Bush for all he has done for the corporate elite, firing champagne corks at any throngs of scruffy middle-class protesters we meet along the way.
