Navigating the anti-Harper protest line (video)

After venturing off campus Friday afternoon to have a drink with an old Carleton friend, I returned to the conference centre to find the road out front closed and filled with about 200 protesters there to greet Stephen Harper who was due to speak to delegates that evening. I proceeded to work my way through the rather profane cloud who were swearing at anyone in site they thought might be a Conservative. This included me, in my Walmart sportcoat and Zellers shirt. I particularly enjoyed being told to choke on my money, as we all know how well blogging pays...

My pithy sense of humour tells me comedy gold would have manifested itself if you'd worn a Che Guevara T-sirt to the convention, particularly with these protesters.

Then again, I get the sense that you don't have one of those. Am I right?
