John Kerry was in Milwaukee last night at Pere Marquette Park. Amazingly enough, I was actually downtown by the lake, and didn't even realize he was in the area. I will consider myself lucky for the simple fact that I missed the traffic snarl ups. Although I do remember thinking to myself last night, "What's with all the police cars driving around all of a sudden tonight?" I guess I have my answer. Too bad I didn't realize that he was at the river, because I would have stopped by in order to join "the goons". From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
They're not goons, they're citizens and voters! Apparently it's simply voicing the "other side" when you have ravenous anti-Bush people at a Bush rally. But when pro-Bush people line a Kerry rally, they're goons. I will point out that I specifically use the term anti-Bush and not pro-Kerry... because I'm not sure such a person exists. I think most of the Kerry supporters would support anyone with a pulse, as long as he said whatever they wanted to hear... which of course he is more than willing to do.
I have to credit the Journal Sentinel though with actually spending a good piece of this article on the fact that they were there. I don't think the NY Times would have bothered with a single sentence about it.
Update: Thanks to VodkaPundit for catching this exta detail about Kerry's Milwaukee visit (and shame on me for missing it):
Two thoughts on this come to mind. First of all, if Bill Clinton can go to Leon's when he's in town campaigning for President, so can you John Kerry, especially when you say you will. Secondly, why would you go to Leon's? Kopp's is much better. They're Butter Pecan custard is hands down the best around.
