I worked during the DNC several years ago. The only nut jobs I saw were right wing extremists, and religious radicals who looked like Amish people walking around screaming at people and carrying signs with aborted fetuses. If you go uptown now, you still see the same right wing whackos screaming and antagonizing people with right wing propaganda and hate speech. Not very Christian of them.
some people may want the RNC here, but many many many more do not. Hope Cooper stands his ground here.
