What's the point of protesting at 9:30pm?

Postby TAsunder » Tue Mar 20, 2007 11:02 am


What's with all the anti-bush political protests during times when no one who can actually do anything about the issue are around? Most of the protests occur when there are no sessions at the capitol. Last night took the cake: there was a protest at 9:30pm. Eh?!

Who are the people organizing these? It almost seems like the protests are just an excuse to yell. And let me tell you, there is no need for an excuse to yell on state street or the capitol area in general. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's the official primal scream center of Madison.

Anyone who can shed some light on the reasoning here?

To get on the 10:00 news?

Trust me when I say that a protest outside the Capitol that begins at 9:30 pm is NOT going to be on the 10 pm news. There are too many logistical hurdles.
