Oh, our aching sides! This is what happens when you rely on slackers.

Inside the venue, the protest is even more pitiful.

Over/under on the media reporting it as a “huge” protest?

Even the Lefty professors couldn’t get the slacktivists to actually show up.

The “media advisory” bit is particularly hilarious. Quick, media, to the bat vans! A massive protest … of 5 people … is about to start! Mayhem!
You can watch the speech live on-line, if you can hear it through that massive protest and all.
