Michelle lays it down in an after-action report:
The pro-Marines protesters came, saw, and conquered in Berkeley last night–despite massive chaos, anarchy, and police neglect. The City Council partially backed down–conceding it had erred in passing its obnoxious “unwelcome intruders” resolution and granting Code Pink special privileges. The SFChron reports that “some council members added that they felt they owed U.S. troops an apology as well the many Berkeley residents who were ashamed and offended by their position. ‘To err is human but to really screw up it takes the Berkeley City Council,’ said council member Gordon Wozniak. ‘We failed our city. We embarrassed our city.’”
The council refused to officially apologize. And the troop-haters remain unrepentantly bigoted.
Normally you would think that the designation “after-action” report would be overkill for a domestic squabble, but look at some of the outrageously stupid BS that went on last night.
Now, for the parodies!
