State of the Union 2007 Around the Capitol

I walked over to the Capitol tonight to check out what photographable stuff was going on in the area in the way of protest actions. Word was there’d be a big “State of Emergency” thingy, but when I got to the Grant Memorial, this is what I found:

I estimate about 25 people, some with signs, while on the Memorial steps someone in a Bush/Devil costume waved a plastic pitchfork as he (she?) pantomimed to live audio of the SOTU address. More photos here. I also got some pretty Capitol Dome pictures. Aren’t they pretty?

    I guess only the hard-core folks felt like they needed to turn out in near-freezing weather to make a statement nobody cares about. If I had a higher opinion of the population as a whole I might be surprised it was even that many people, but I am under no illusions about how many quixotic folk who like the sound of their own voice there are in the world.
