Even local nightclubs are getting into the spirit of things. Instead of Barracking the Vote, this club has gone for something a little more Travolta-esque.

It’s OK. It’s a hybrid.

What Code Pink lacked in numbers, they made up for by haranguing the outdoor lunch crowd.

There’s a joke here involving cops and Volkswagens, but I’m not going to make it. These guys already have enough to deal with.

When CNN shows you the “huge” protest crowds at the “Freedom March,” keep in mind they couldn’t even come close to filling the modest-sized park where they began their Somewhat Noisy Stroll.

Once the march got going, things moved quickly. By that I mean: It was over fast. The bulk of the Noisy Stroll passed by me in less than two minutes. The press-to-protestor ratio was close to 1:1.

I did, however, see one group, however small, of happy protestors.

No blood in the streets, no flung poo. One report said that Recreat68 and the rest of the brats could only muster 5% of the crowds they’d promised us. A promise — or a threat?

Neither. Just lameness.
