  •  A couple things here.... (none)
    I don't think anyone deluded themselves into thinking this protest was changing anything.  I get that this protest was for "us" and have said as much.  However, people that were bitching about ANSWER were bitching because it's symptomatic of a larger problem our movenment has.  There's no real direction and the more fringe elements are always flinging their shit around, and whether you like to believe it or not, discrediting everyone little by little.  It's like going to a party and having that friend that takes their pants off and pukes in someone's bed.  It's embarrassing.  It makes you look bad and eventually people don't want you at their parties anymore.  Why would any serious Dem want to be on the same stage as a communist leader who supports sucicide bombers in Iraq?  I'm sorry, but ESPECIALLY when youre a politician you don't just "go to the protest with the leaders you have".  That's stupid.      

    Arrogance and stupidity: it's a winning combination.
