Those brave journalists tasked with crafting a Convention narrative of Democratic Party tongue kissing between trips to the ClearChannel tent for a shot of Stoli and another hand job have pretty much neglected to mention the protests taking place outside the Pepsi Center. You have to dig in any of the larger papers just to get the sense that, shockingly, not everyone is pleased about two wars, regulatory malfeasance, rampant PAC influence, and all the other bullshit we don't talk about in polite company. Grabbed a few, though, for your angry pleasure:
-WSJ's Washington Wire wrote up the detention of four protesters who didn't have proper ID.
-Boston.com has some anti-war march footage.
-The Colorado Independent, which you should all be paying more attention to in the next couple of days, claims two were arrested at the end of an anti-war rally earlier today.
Also worth keeping an eye on is the People's Law Project, an organization cobbled together by the National Lawyers Guild to defend dissent at the convention. Don't forget: despite what the last seven years have taught you, America, you are still permitted to voice disagreement.
