Civil War II?
The caption under the photo reads "An unidentified supporter of President Bush tries to silence protester Kendra Lloyd-Knox (right) outside Southridge High School in Beaverton. Elsewhere in Portland, supporters of Democratic candidate Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., rallied on the waterfront."
Also, check out Anna's diary at Daily Kos for a list of bloggers that will be blogging the convention from the Douglas Fairbanks Theater, just northwest of Madison Square Garden: RNC Street Bloggers hosted by The Tank
Although I live in Brooklyn, I might pop in to meet some fellow bloggers in the flesh and laptops. Some of the cooler bloggers going are Madeline Kane, a hysterical satirist that I share links with; Naomi Seligman of the absolutely essential Media Matters for America, a media watchdog site that I frequently post on; and the equally enlightening Matthew Yglesias. Not that the rest aren't cool: Jerome Armstrong of mydd.com; Jeralyn Merritt of talkleft.com; Mark Sundeen of marksundeen.com; Markos Moulitsas & Theoria of dailykos.com; Theoria of liberalstreetfight.com; Christian of edgewise; Adam Mordecai of change for america; Shankar Duraiswamy of three guys; Matt Stoller of bopnews.com; Jesse Taylor and Ezra Klein of pandagon.net; Adam Wodon of adamw.dailykos.com; anna of annatopia and majority report radio; Zachary Roth and Liz Cox Barrett of campaigndesk.com; Jake Parrillo of JoinCrossBlog; Christopher Rabb of Afro-Netizen; Zoe VanderWolk of Greenpass; Daniel Stein of dstein.blogspot.com; Mike Borrelli of Polipop; and Ollie B of Wild Democracy Ride. Wow...what a lineup!
There's also a free photo blog for the convention at RNC Moblog, which will probably feature pictures less benign than the Portland one.
