The call to arms is emotional: ‘We need a President who will stand up to Big Oil!’
The impact is nationwide: ‘National Day of Action for an Oil Free President… At gas stations across the country…’
The movement is massive: ‘American people need an Oil-Free President!’
And the Albany Times Union took a photo-op to demonstrate the fury of the numerous protestors – all 7 of them.
Making the photo even more priceless is the second gentleman from the left, who had to hold up two signs at once, because an 8th protestor was not available.
Now, I had a good 10-12 people at a cookout last weekend, and a majority of them were protesting my overcooking of their burgers. Worse, I was probably wasting untold amounts of gas by serving well-done burgers to the guests - a costly mistake. Yet the Times Union was nowhere to be found.
At what point did it become newsworthy when 7 people gathered for a nationwide protest? You know the answer… When it promotes a liberal cause.
