2012 RNC Protest Awards

As with every major event, some self-satisfied schmuck comes along and deigns it his or her distinct honor to decide who were the best dressed, worst dressed, most improved, most likely to, most popular and funniest. In the case of The March on the Republican National Convention (RNC), that self-satisfied schmuck would be moi.

  1. OMG, are you staying up all night BB or do these awesome riffs just roll out of your head as you roll out of bed? You need to tweet these to The Daily Show….I’ll take your RNC coverage any day over the major networks. Samantha Bee’s got nothing on you. Am sending out via FB and Twitter so everyone I know can start their day with a Miss Snarky Pants smile. =)

    1. Yeah, I was going to say that I was getting all my RNC news from you and Jon Stewart. Also, I couldn’t tell if that was the guy from Sex and the City or Pitbull, so thanks for clearing that up.

    1. Man, I am so excited about my future now. A curmudgeon, huh? Damn, almost makes me wish I was a man so I could look forward to my balls drooping and hair growing out of strange orifices.

      1. Okay. I’ll buy a thesaurus and use the gender correct word. The one that jumped to mind was snarky old bag. You’re neither. So off to the bookstore.

      2. No, I like curmudgeon. I suspect that Mark Twain was a curmudgeon when he got older and I aspire to be like him…except not quite so poor. He made a lot of bad investments.

  2. I’m no vigilante but I might shoot a some of the people in these pictures for smelling bad. Hoodies in Tampa in August? The liberal agenda shouldn’t stink, people. It should practice better hygiene. At least the vaginas were clean. That’s important.

      1. A telephoto lens is very handy in times of protest. You should get hazard pay…well first you should get pay and THEN you should get hazard pay. Why isn’t someone paying you? I’m going to protest. Get me my black hoodie!

  3. The real tragedy is the bore said by mitt the twit instead of covering ron Paul OR the fact that the RNC changed the rules almost e v e r y single day

    1. Erm…okay. I agree that it was shameful that the RNC didn’t give Ron Paul the coverage that he deserved at the convention. They’re only screwing themselves because he could have turned votes Mitt’s way…but I don’t consider that to be a tragedy. It just confirms why I am voting for Obama!

  4. You really should have covered our convention. The Greens are much more award-worthy. That’s on the convention floor, where the public was ALLOWED. Well, I take that back. It’s apples & oranges. We didn’t have any protestors. Barely had any press.

    If you could get onto the floor of the GOP convention, I’m sure we’d get a magnificent post from you.

  5. I have been trying so hard (and it’s futile) to avoid politics lately. But who could resist this? Humor as the great unifier. Since I live in the black helicopter headquarters of the world, and probably the protesting center of the universe, I feel your pain. And if I could be half as funny as you, I’d run for office myself. Hey…

    1. Thanks, Ms. T! Though I meander into the world of political humor on occasion, I tend to stay away as politics is proving to be the most partisan. I’m so glad that you enjoyed this, but I will be returning to my traditional programming soon…now that the RNC is finally over and the helicopters have stopped hovering over my building.

      1. Psh. Snark, snark, snark. Ever since you got those new pants, it’s just All Snark All The Time. You have wounded me, and now I’m going to go drown my sorrows in bacon and vodka. (You’re very welcome!)

    1. I know. I was particularly disappointed in the people who had no signs. They just showed up and sauntered along as though someone promised them coffee and a donut if they’d walk a mile with the group.

  6. I miss the Liberals of olden days,you know the Kennedy’s days.Those Libs have more concern for others and RESPECT the Republicans as a fair opponents.Also They Love USA–and HATE the Commies.They are HARDCORE in their believe.Although those old Libs got things right but their next generation got saturated in petty radicalism and you know….. The LSD Induced Hippies.
    The Libs today are so comical in comparison with the old ones.
