PHOTOS: Republican Convention Protest, 8/29/04

WARNING: This protest contains adult content.

We ran into a small contingent of right-wing christian zealots with serious anger management issues, but they got more than they bargained for when confronted with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog(!!), who interrogated them on what exactly they think is wrong with sodomy. Triumph's appearance soon inspired a rousing "Poop on Bush!" chant, and he also took a moment on 34th street to lead us in an "H&M makes shitty clothes!" side-protest.

I wonder how much footage Conan will use, if any.. you could tell Robert Smigel was totally down with the march, but it seems like Conan prefers to keep things mostly non-partisan? When I saw Triumph's live show in Montreal he was dissing Bush all night, and getting much more topical than I've ever seen him on NBC.

After finishing the walk from 14th and 7th up to 34th, over to 5th, then back down to 14th, we took a minute to chill in Union Square, then went up to Central Park for a Be-In of sorts. And after all the huffing and puffing that preceded it, even Police Commissioner had to admit "the event went very well."
