Picture of the Day: Canoe Flotilla Protests Walker Outside His Backyard

More

When in the course of human events a Republican governor makes liberal enemies and lives on the water, said enemies will get in canoes and protest him. That's what happened this past Saturday in Madison, Wis., when a liberal protester who lives on Lake Mendota, which abuts the backyard of the Wisconsin Governor's Mansion, organized a nine-person flotilla to protest Gov. Scott Walker at a party hosted by Walker's wife.

From a post on the Blue Cheddar Blog:

So when it leaked out Friday that Tonette, Walker's wife, was to host a garden party on Saturday, some of Walker's neighbors could not resist the temptation to float by and say "RECALL!" ...

Details from the float: The Republicans assembled have the same JcPenneys clothes and haircuts you've seen at the golf course. What I heard of their music carried a safe blues base line. Eyeballing the visible crowd I'd say 1,000 people. No swear words or insults were exchanged. One woman looked at us from the shore with binoculars and small groups came to the end of the dock and took photos of us and waved.
