San Francisco -- ***Protestors in high-end fundraiser - see below***
Motorcade left the Intercontinental Hotel at 9 am local and arrived at the St. Regis for President Obama's last Bay area fundraiser. A couple dozen demonstrators are on a corner across the street from the hotel. They have signs - "Yes We Cannabis" and "Protect Marijuana Patients Rights" - and are chanting something your pooler couldn't make out. One of them also has sign of Uncle Sam's face with "LIAR" written on his hat.
Read on. It's one hit after another:) And then they sang a protest song.
Loony tunes from the left to their guy.
...shucks no audio this time. Maybe someone has a pirate version though. We can only hope.
The other guests at the table who hummed along remained for the rest of the speech. They told the reporters that they had some affiliation with the freshjuiceparty.com website, which advocates that people should sing that song in a public forum, videotape the event and then provide it to the website for compensation. How much singers get paid depends on where they sing and what they wear.
Is this going to be a regular occurrence at The One's fundraisers? :)
Getting some competition in the political theatre department. Scrambled eggs.
