Here is the loony left’snew plan to broaden the appeal of the Democratic party:
Three buses are scheduled to leave Wisconsin for Washington D.C. Wednesday to take people to the “Turn Your Back on Bush” protest at President Bush’s inauguration.
The protest is designed to outsmart security guards. Protesters won’t carry any signs or wear any clothing that might tip off authorities. When a spoken cue is given, the protesters plan to turn their backs on the president’s motorcade.
Anita Singh, a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and one of the organizers, said the spoken signal is a secret for now because organizers don’t want to tip off security infiltrators in their ranks.
“It is kind of weird,” Singh said. “People will be going there to dissuade protesters, turn them in the wrong direction, get them away from the inauguration.”
Tracey Sperko, of Milwaukee, is a Gulf War veteran and was state director of Veterans for Kerry, a support group for Bush’s opponent John Kerry in the November election.
She plans to protest.
“I know it won’t change anything, but what I’ve found is that it gives hope to a lot of people,” she said.
What a pathetic group of losers. Even the Washington Post is mocking them:
There’s also the very key issue of how, exactly, a person should turn his or her back. The style. The nature of the pivot.
“Very sharp, quick,” says Sarah Kauffman, a student at Ursinus College who is a field organizer for the protest (or “action,” as it is called). Kauffman, a theater arts major, stands on the sidewalk on Connecticut Avenue and demonstrates her own back-turning technique. Her turn is swift and sure and graceful, a full 180 that never comes too close to being a 170 or a 190. She does it so elegantly that it’s as though her feet haven’t moved. She describes her body language: “This is my statement, I don’t have any hesitation about making it, it’s not something I’m sort of thinking about.”
She’s considering a military style about-face, with a step forward and a pronounced pivot. She demonstrates the move. It’s impressive. That’ll show ’em.

Give them credit, John–for once, the American left is putting its best side forward. ]:-)
As my dear old dad used to say, they’ve once again got things bass ackwards.
Please don’t think they are representative of the rest of us in Wisconsin. Thats the Madison brains fried on drugs mostly college crowd.
Oh, a hissy-fit. That’ll be sure to impress people.
The turns, swift, sure, gracful, whatever, have to be to the LEFT to count, don’t they?
