Scenes From The DNC



Turista



Strollin', strollin', strollin'. Keep those delegates strollin'. Strollin', strollin', strollin'. Rawhide!



Po-po On Bikes



Lil' Girl Handing Out Free Lemonade

This is a brilliant McCain tactic.

Getting an innocent looking girl to hand out cyanide laced lemonade to take out Democrats one by one.

No one would suspect that she would be a GOP operative; which is the beauty of this subversive act.

In fact, she is a genetically modified senior citizen engineered by PAC money to single-handedly undermine the DNC.

Be aware that others like her are also afoot; disguised in Obama singlets, secretly videotaping and sabotaging the event in their Bugaboo strollers.

They're colic-y, but deadly.



The MSNBC 'Pavilion'

Why they chose this location fathoms me.

Union Station doesn't exactly evoke 'Denver'.

It would have been cool if they were able to broadcast from the turret of the State Capitol building.

[By the way, my bus home passes by this to and fro from work, so keep an eye out for the windowlicking dude on the bus around 7:25 AM and 5:005 PM during the convention. I'll be the one wearing the Fez.]




Not Really Related To The DNC But...

This pic evokes why Denver/Colorado is the skinniest state.

We peeps run/bike/hike everywhere.



Security Gates

I don't get these gates.

There everywhere, blocking streets in LoDo, but they have this portion that could totally act as a seat.

The homeless could totally sleep on them, or watch the events, but oh wait.

That's right.

They were shipped off to the zoo and movie theaters with their fab new hairstyles.

[Honestly, there are no homeless to be seen. On the news, I saw that there was a rumor among homeless peeps [from a few homeless peeps themselves], that they would be arrested/deported to the subs. So, many of them split Downtown.]



The Bunker

The Pepsi Center has been cordoned off unto a bunker.

Also known as 'Tent and Generator City'.

Security is so strict, they yell at you for taking pics.

Sorry, Mr. and Mrs. Gestapo.



Dude, Where's My Nominee?

This guy obvs didn't get the memo.

It stated that stonewashed denim, and frizzy Sidewhow Bob do's are strictly verboten.

Doy.

Go to the zoo or the movies until Friday.

Geesh!



Denver's Times Square [AKA Tourist Central]



Sometimes A Train Is Simply A Train



Seriously, Union Pacific shipped in all these trains to Union Station when we have little to no train service.

I guess we have the California Zephyr, and the Ski Train, but these tracks are ALWAYS empty.



The bloggers get their own tent!



Protestors!



More Protestors!

Reminds me of the Summer events that take place in Civic Center.



Po-po On Horses!



Obama Jama

Honestly, one of the favorite things I have seen so far.

Not only the images of Obama and McCain rockin' out, but the fact that Hillary is the DJ on the 1's and 2's.



Water!

Seriously.

You know Denver is trying to prettify itself when it turns on the water fountains.

We're basically a mountain desert, undergoing an eternal drought.

So to see them turn on the hose is quite the spetacular event.

They even turned on the water fountains on the mall!!




Unrelated[?]

This ice cream truck followed me home.

More McCain hooliganry?

Why would an ice cream truck be out now when all the kids are back in school?

If I don't post tomorrow, alert the authorities!

Or not.

They're probably involved!

Wait.

I think I have said too much already.

What?

I didn't take pictures.

I don't know what you're talking about!

I'm a Canadian.

Just....visiting.

[Runs away, arms flailing, wailing in to the night.]

Uhh, what is that guy in the first photo doing? Is that a garbage can, and is he trying to look inside it?

It's actually a electric switching box for the street lights.

He's using it as a 'tripod' for his camera.
