Shower Curtain Chronicles: Wednesday's Rowdy Rotunda

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Wednesday's Rowdy Rotunda

It was a bit noisy today at the Capitol with a group of college students rallying in the rotunda. A small group of them from UMD approached me in front of the House identifying themselves as supporters. I was holding the "GAY FAMILIES DESERVE AND DEMAND EQUALITY" shower curtain. Most of the conversation I had with the woman and two men focussed on the presidential campaign and their experience at this year's caucuses in Duluth. They descibed the heavy turnout and attributed it to excitement over Obama, whom they all support. They also stated that they participated in a "marriage equality" subcaucus at their precinct caucus. I thanked them and gave them "MARRIAGE EQUALITY" stickers which they promptly applied to their clothing. After offering some words of encouragement, they returned to the rally. The future looks bright.

I didn't do the Senate today. The 2:15 start time was just too inconvenient.

Tomorrow, the House meets at 10:00 and the Senate at 11:00. I'll be there for both.
