Libertarian National Convention

Neanderbill and I joined the NC state delegation to the Libertarian National Convention.

Here is a brief video of our arrival at the bar last night, greeting our fellow Libertarian Party members.

[Ponda Baba gives Neanderbill a rough shove and starts yelling at NB in an alien language which NB doesn't understand]
Dr. Evazan: [explaining] He doesn't like you.
NB: Sorry.
Dr. Evazan: [grabbing NB] *I* don't like you either. You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I have petitioned for ballot access in twelve states.
NB: I'll be careful.
Dr. Evazan: You'll be de-credentialed!
Obi-Wan: [intervening] This gigantic one's not worth the effort. Now, let me get you something.
[Dr. Evazan shoves NB across the room and pulls out a quorum call]
Bartender: No quorum calls! No quorum calls!
[Obi-Wan pulls out his microphone, severing Ponda Baba's eardrum with a point of parliamentary inquiry]

Okay, no, seriously, here are some pix. Here is the view from the floor of the big screens up front. And here is David Nolan (yes, the chart guy, and founder of the LP) making a point. Oh, and don't forget StarChild. StarChild is the best.

So in this scenario, who are the droids who get denied entrance?

And who in the hell is this StarChild?

StarChild is a genuinely eccentric person. But he commands real respect, because he is smarter and more committed than almost anyone else. I genuinely admire him; he is a wonderful, vivid, interesting person. We need more people like him.

And the 'droids would be anyone who thinks Prez Obama is doing, or that Prez Bush did do, a "heckuva job, Brownie." I think people at this convention would vote for Obama over Bush (sensibly, in my view), but NOTA would be the runaway winner.

Didn't realize Bill was LP.

Did you guys pick up some of those boots? Very well done.

Nothing like alienating all who are not yet aware of their inner libertarian core. By the way, have you seen the "Robin Hood Oath?"
