Congrats. Can't wait to see the pics. I've had 2 opportunities to see his satanic face in person holding protest signs... It's exhilirating to flip the fucker off in person. If you do get to see him,note how really SHORT he is compared to his SS agents.

Huge stakes in Missouri: Talent v. McCaskill
Thus Bush v. Clinton fund raising


Clinton's visit will help McCaskill, perhaps others

Former President Bill Clinton's Saturday visit in St. Louis, which will be his first to the region in seven years, already has raised at least a $1 million for state Auditor Claire McCaskill's Democratic quest to unseat U.S. Sen. Jim Talent, R-Mo.

But when the former president takes the stage at a public rally that morning in University City, critics and admirers agree that he will primarily evoke the past.

"Bill Clinton presided over eight of this nation's most prosperous years," said state Democratic Party spokesman Jack Cardetti. "We weren't paying $3 a gallon for gasoline when Bill Clinton was president."

Meanwhile, the state Republican Party joined national critics in asserting that Clinton's legacy also includes "a failure to fight what was then a war on terror," which the GOP contends helped encourage the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. <!-- // begin DisplayAds(&quot;Frame1&quot;,&quot;&quot;,&quot;&quot;); // --> http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/800/1129/0/oascentral-s.realmedia.com/RealMedia/ads/Creatives/default/empty.gif (http://oas-central.realmedia.com/RealMedia/ads/click_lx.ads/www.stltoday.com/news/front/71580107/Frame1/default/empty.gif/34363831366465663433623436346230?)

Hi everyone, back from protest. There was at best about 250 people....was hoping for more..........but it was still good. Yes I shouted until I was hoarse. Hey....Hey... Ho....Ho.....Bush and Talent got to go! and Bush Lied, People Died! and several other chants. I met a couple who lost their only son to the Iraq War, I guess that was the most touching to me. There were, I believe 3 news stations there. When we got there we had a nice place in the shade, police made us move back, which was bull, but whatever..
The only thing that concerns me really, was the turnout. I mean 250 (approx) is fair, but there could have been alot more.

The reason it bothers me is because when I was leaving, I passed the house where Bush had just been and seen the guests leaving. There were being shuttled and some we walking. I noticed, they were smiling, talking, and basically unaffected. I snapped a shot of a few of them at the corner, walking home.

They just ugggggghhhhhhhhhhh, have no conscience? I wish I would have taken more pics. These aren't all but some I thought you might like to see. Also, I want to mention another kid I met there. He held a sign that said, Bush mad me murder. He was in his twenties and had been to Iraq 3 times. He may get called back again. I am sure you all realize the military men and women who are over there are stretched. If we dont end this war and we go to war with Iran....as I believe Bush intends....the draft is sure to come.
It is so important to get the word out! Feet on the street.

Here is the last pic I will post. This young gal dressed as a Hitler/Bush

All in all it was a great experience....before I forget, the young man who may get called back..his voice got hoarse, so I got to iniate the chant as bush was leaving. Just as he was directly across from me out spilled the word...MURDERED!! and then I went on with my chant...
My sign said: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and the back of it said: IMPEACH
